The Jena tramway network (German: Straßenbahnnetz Jena) is a network of tramways forming part of the public transport system in Jena, a city in the federal state of Thuringia, Germany.

Opened in 1901, the network is currently operated by Jenaer Nahverkehrsgesellschaft (de); it has five lines in operation during the day, and three lines operating in the evening and/or overnight.


On 17 December 2009, a new network of lines was introduced to coincide with the opening of the new Göschwitz–Burgau line.
