Nesselande is a subway station on Line B of the Rotterdam Metro and is situated in Rotterdam-Nesselande. It is the northern terminus of the line.

The station, designed by architect Hans Moor, was opened on August 29, 2005, as part of the one-station extension of the East-West Line or Caland Line from its previous terminus De Tochten. Unlike the section between Capelsebrug and De Tochten, this section does not use overhead wires to provide traction power, but uses a third rail instead. The station consists of one island platform between two tracks.
