Kiruna Central Station (Swedish: Kiruna centralstation) is a railway station located on the Iron Ore Line in Kiruna, Sweden.

The old station was located between LKAB's mines and the city center, and was 400 metres (1,300 ft) from Vänorstorget in the city center. In 2013 the a new provisional station in the north east of the town took over the traffic, as the old station is in the area of the iron ore mine. The old station and the station hotel (stations hotellet) was demolished in 2017.
