Rijnhaven is an above-ground subway station in the south of the city of Rotterdam. It is part of Rotterdam Metro lines D and E.

The station opened on February 9, 1968, on the same date that the North-South Line (also formerly called Erasmus line), of which it is a part, was opened. Near the station, travelers can get on RET-operated bus line 77 which can bring them to the SS Rotterdam.
