Leipzig Bayerischer Bahnhof (Leipzig Bavarian station) is Germany's oldest preserved railway station, located in Leipzig, Germany. The station first opened in 1842 for the Leipzig–Hof railway by the Saxon-Bavarian Railway Company (German: Sächsisch-Baierschen Eisenbahn-Compagnie), later taken over by the Royal Saxon State Railways (Königlich Sächsische Staatseisenbahnen) and operated as the Saxon-Bavarian State Railways (Sächsisch-Bayerische Staatseisenbahn).

The station was closed in 2001 for the construction of the Leipzig City Tunnel. It was re-opened December 15, 2013 after the completion of the tunnel. Since then it is integrated into S-Bahn Mitteldeutschland system. The new station is built directly underneath the site of the former station.
