Trento railway station (Italian: Stazione di Trento, German: Bahnhof Trient) serves the city and comune of Trento, capital of the autonomous region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, northeastern Italy. Opened in 1859, it forms part of the Brenner railway (Verona–Innsbruck), and is also a junction with the Valsugana railway, which connects Trento with Venice.
The station is currently managed by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI). However,the commercial area of the passenger building is managed by Centostazioni. Train services to and from the station are operated by Trenitalia. Each of these companies is a subsidiary of Ferrovie dello Stato (FS), Italy's state-owned rail company.
Trento railway station is situated at Piazza Dante, at the northern edge of the city centre.
The passenger building houses the ticket office and waiting room as well as other facilities such as a bar and a newsstand.

There are also a locomotive shed and a turntable.
The goods yard is situated at Roncafort, a short distance to the north along the Brenner railway.
