The Brilon Wald station is a station on the Upper Ruhr Valley Railway (German: Obere Ruhrtalbahn) in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It was opened 5.5 km south of Brilon in the forest (Wald) with the construction of the line on 10 February 1873, as it was impractical to build the railway through Brilon. The station was called Brilon-Corbach until 1880, when the current name was adopted.[2] The Bergisch-Märkische Railway Company (Bergisch-Märkische Eisenbahn-Gesellschaft) created the small town of Brilon Wald at the same time. The station is classified by Deutsche Bahn as a category 5 station.[1]
