Trento railway station (Italian: Ferrovie 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). The commercial area of the passenger building, however, is managed by Centostazioni, whereas train services are operated by Trenitalia. Each of these three companies is a subsidiary of the FS, Italy's state-owned rail company.

The passenger building hosts the ticket office and a waiting room. Other facilities include a cafe bar and a newspaper stand.
