Hamburg Dammtor is a railway station for long distance, regional and suburban trains on the Hamburg-Altona link line, located in Central Hamburg, Germany. In front is a bus station of the same name for public transport.

The railway station is one of four long distance train stations in Hamburg. The other stations are Hamburg Hauptbahnhof, Hamburg-Altona and Hamburg-Harburg. Despite its size and importance, the station is classified as a Halt point (Haltepunkt) because no trains change directions or start or end here.


The name Dammtor originates from an old city gate located here until the end of the 19th century. The present railway station was opened on 7 July 1903. A previous station, built in 1866, was located around one hundred meters away.


Hamburg Dammtor is close to the Wallring and the center of Hamburg, located in the quarter Rotherbaum of the Eimsbüttel borough. Nearby are also the University of Hamburg and the Congress Center Hamburg. As a result, the railway station signs have the addition Messe- und Kongressbahnhof (trade fair and congress station).


The railway station has 4 elevated tracks, on two island platforms, one servicing the regional and long distance trains, the other platform servicing the S-Bahn.
