Sindal station is a railway station serving the railway town of Sindal, Denmark.

The station is located on the Vendsyssel Line from Aalborg to Frederikshavn, between Hjørring station and Tolne station. The train services are operated by DSB which runs frequent InterCity services to Copenhagen and Frederikshavn and regional train services to Aalborg and Frederikshavn.

History[edit]

The station opened in 1871 as the branch from Nørresundby to Frederikshavn of the new Nørresundby-Frederikshavn railway line opened on 16 August 1871. The station building was designed by the architect N.P.C. Holsøe.

On 7 January 1879, at the opening of the Limfjord Railway Bridge, the Vendsyssel line was connected with Aalborg station, the Randers-Aalborg railway line and the rest of the Danish rail network.

Today, the station is closed but continues as a halt.
