Route information
List of railway stations in North Rhine-Westphalia

The Warburg station (German: Bahnhof Warburg (Westfalen) or Bf Warburg (Westf)) is located on the north-eastern edge of the German town of Warburg.

The station was built in 1852 and 1853. Warburg and Minden stations are the last stations from the early railway history of the Prussian province of Westphalia that are still in their original form as island stations (Inselbahnhöfen), with the station entrance buildings located between the tracks.

Location[edit]

The station is located at Warburg on the double track and electrified Hamm–Warburg line to Hamm, the Frederick William Northern Railway to Kassel and the non-electrified Upper Ruhr Valley Railway to Hagen.

The former line to Volkmarsen, part of the Warburg–Sarnau line, was closed in 1977 and dismantled in 1983.

Regional trains stopping in Warburg are: Regional-Express trains to Hagen (RE 17: Sauerland-Express), Regionalbahn trains via Paderborn to Münster (RB 89: Ems-Börde-Bahn) and RegioTram trains to Kassel (RT3).[3]
