History
Opened 1 December 1847[2]

Velbert-Nierenhof station is located in the city of Velbert in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It is on the Wuppertal-Vohwinkel–Essen-Überruhr line and is classified by Deutsche Bahn as a category 5 station.[1]

The first German railway was opened from here to Kupferdreh by the Deil Valley Railway Company on 20 September 1831 as a horse-drawn, narrow-gauge railway, which carried coal until 1844, but it also carried passengers from 1833. The Prince William Railway Company standardised the line and opened a station on this site on 1 December 1847.[2]

It is served by Rhine-Ruhr S-Bahn line S 9 (HalternWuppertal), operating every 20 minutes during the day. It is also served by bus route OV8, operated by Busverkehr Rheinland at 60 minutes intervals during the day.[3]
