The train station Diebsteich is served by the rapid transit trains of the Hamburg S-Bahn and the commuter trains of the AKN railways plc.[1] The S-Bahn tracks run parallel with the Hamburg-Altona–Kiel railway. Right along the tracks is the border of the quarter Altona-Nord and Bahrenfeld of the Altona borough in Hamburg, Germany.

The station is named after a small lake in the neighbourhood which no longer exists.
