Nijmegen is a railway station located in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. The station was opened on 9 August 1865 and is located on the Tilburg–Nijmegen railway, Nijmegen–Venlo railway and the Arnhem–Nijmegen railway. It was extensively rebuilt after the war since the original station was severely damaged by a US bombing raid in February 1944 and during Operation Market Garden in September 1944. Until 1991 there was a line into Germany from here to Kleve.

The train services are operated by Nederlandse Spoorwegen and Veolia. The station is a central station for the whole area and is a busy interchange station.
