Dekeleia (Greek: Σιδηροδρομικός Σταθμός Δεκελείας, Sidirodromikos Stathmos Dekeleias) is a railway station in Dekeleia, north of Athens, Greece. The station was opened on 6 May 2005,[citation needed] and features two side platforms.

The station passenger building is a particularly fine structure, exceeding the normal passenger needs of the area, since it was formerly used to service the nearby Tatoi Palace, the summer residence of the Greek Royal Family. The station was originally named Tatoi, but was renamed at an unknown date. It is served by trains of the Proastiakos line from Piraeus to Chalcis.[2]
