The Odder Line (Danish: Odderbanen), formerly also known as Hads-Ning Herreders Jernbane (HHJ), is a 26.5 km (16.5 mi) long standard gauge single track railway line which connects the city of Aarhus with the town of Odder in East Jutland, Denmark.

The line was established in 1884, and used to be operated by the railway company A/S Hads-Ning Herreders Jernbane, which was merged with VLTJ into Midtjyske Jernbaner in 2008.[1] From 2012 the traffic is called Aarhus Nærbane, operated by DSB.

The line is to be adapted for Aarhus Letbane electric tram-train services from 2016.[2]
