History[edit]

On 1 December 1897, the Cöln-Mindener Eisenbahn started its service on the Rollbahn line.[4] In 1983 — after 10 years of construction, the first part of Hamburg's southern S-Bahn line from Central Station toward Harburg were completed and opened with the new Veddel station.[5]

The station is not fully accessible for handicapped persons.[6] Before 1983, the station building was a brick building with an island platform and one entrance. Since the new S-Bahn line, it has exits on both ends of an island platform and a simple flat roof.[7]
