Heerlen is a railway station located in Heerlen, Netherlands.

History[edit]

The station was opened on 1 May 1896 and is located on the Sittard–Herzogenrath railway and the Heerlen–Schin op Geul railway. The station was an important mining station, until the mines closed down. From Heerlen, you can travel to Aachen and some other destinations in Germany, nearer to the Dutch border. There is an Intercity that travels from the north of the country to the south.

As part of the 'Maankwartier' (Moon Quarter) project, construction of an entirely new train station started in December 2012.
