Oosterflank is a subway station on Rotterdam Metro lines A and B, and is situated in the northeastern part of Rotterdam, in the borough Prins Alexander. The station is named after the neighbourhood Oosterflank, situated just east of the subway station.

This station was opened on May 28, 1983 when the East-West Line (also formerly the Caland line) was extended from its previous terminus Capelsebrug. Note that this section uses overhead wires to provide traction power.

At Oosterflank station, passengers can transfer to RET-buslines 36 and 37.
