Voss Station (Norwegian: Voss stasjon) is a railway station on the Bergen Line located in the village of Vossevangen in the municipality of Voss in Hordaland county, Norway. It sits just off the European route E16 highway on the northwestern shore of the lake Vangsvatnet.

The station was opened as the original terminal station of the Voss Line in 1883. It is served by express trains to Bergen and Oslo, and the Bergen Commuter Rail, all operated by Norwegian State Railways. Most commuter trains terminate at Voss, but up to seven per day continue on to Myrdal.

The station restaurant was taken over by Norsk Spisevognselskap on 15 October 1947.[1]
