Trento railway station (Italian: Ferrovie Stazione di Trento, German: Trient Bahnhof) is the main station of Trento, capital of the autonomous province of Trentino, in northeastern Italy.

The station was opened in 1859 by the Austrian Empire's Südbahn. It is located on the trans-Alpine Brenner Railway connecting Verona to Innsbruck. It is also a terminus of two branch lines: Valsugana Railway (to Levico Terme) and Trento-Malè metre-gauged railway.

The station is currently managed by Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI). The commercial area of the passenger building, however, is managed by Centostazioni, whereas train services are operated by Trenitalia and ÖBB-DB.

Location[edit]

Trento railway station is situated at Piazza Dante, the northwestern edge of the city centre and on the east bank of River Adige (River Etsch).
