Skien Station (Norwegian: Skien stasjon) is a railway station located about one kilometer from downtown Skien. The station serves as terminus for the regional trains on the Vestfold Line from Oslo via Vestfold and for the local trains to Notodden on the Bratsberg Line.

The station was opened in 1917 as part of the Bratsberg Line. The old Skien station is located two kilometers further south, as it serves the city better.
