Apeldoorn (abbreviation: Apd) is a railway station in Apeldoorn, Netherlands. The station was opened on 15 May 1876, on the Amsterdam–Zutphen railway. It was opened when the Amersfoort to Zutphen section was completed. Journey time to Amsterdam is about 1 hour 10 minutes

Station building[edit]

The Apeldoorn station building is not related to any of the standard stations, but it has similarities with stations built in that period. It consists of an upper middle portion with two lower short side wings. The station building was saved in connection with a massive refurbishment of the station from 2004 to 2008.

The refurbishment included, closure of the level crossings at and near the station where passengers and cyclists would pass to get to Apeldoorn Zuid and opening of a new cycle tunnel under the station, railway and the adjacent road. The front square of the station was renewed in conjunction with this. There are also lifts to go up to the platforms.

In 1887 there were local lines from Apeldoorn in three directions:

Train services[edit]

The following services call at Apeldoorn:[1]

  • 7 daily intercity services Amsterdam - Amersfoort - Hengelo - Osnabrück - Hanover - Berlin
  • 1x per hour intercity services Schiphol - Amersfoort - Hengelo - Enschede
  • 1x per hour intercity service The Hague/Rotterdam - Utrecht - Amersfoort - Hengelo - Enschede

From 9 December 2012 Arriva operates the train between Apeldoorn and Zutphen. From the same date Apeldoorn no longer had a direct connection with Rotterdam on weekdays; a change of trains was required in Amersfoort or Utrecht. In the 2015 timetable, however, the direct connection to Rotterdam on weekdays has been restored by splitting/combining trains in Utrecht. The intercity Deventer - Enkhuizen calls at Apeldoorn every hour during weekdays and twice an hour during peak hours, however, not at the times the intercity Amsterdam - Berlin calls at Apeldoorn.

There is a large bus station next to the station. From here town and regional bus services operate. These buses are operated by Syntus, with certain journeys on service 43 operated by Breng. All bus services are frequent and connect with train services.
