Paderborn Hauptbahnhof is the main passenger station in the city of Paderborn in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It is located on the Hamm–Warburg line, part of the Mid-Germany Connection from Cologne or Düsseldorf to Thuringia and Saxony. The Senne Railway branches off to Bielefeld in Paderborn.


The railway between Hamm and Paderborn was opened on 1 October 1850 by the Royal Westphalian Railway Company. The line was extended to Warburg in 1853. The Senne Railway was opened in July 1902. The Alme Valley Railway was opened in 1899 towards Büren; it was closed in 1981. Recently there was an attempt to reopen the line to provide a link to Paderborn Lippstadt Airport.
