Waldshut station (German: Bahnhof Waldshut) is a railway station in the city of Waldshut-Tiengen in the German state of Baden-Württemberg. It was opened on 30 October 1856.

The station lies on the Upper Rhine Railway, which connects Basel and Singen along the northern and, mostly, German bank of the River Rhine. It is the junction point for the Turgi–Koblenz–Waldshut line, which crosses the River Rhine from Switzerland on the Waldshut to Koblenz railway bridge just to the south of the station.[1]

The Upper Rhine Railway is not electrified and most services are operated by diesel locomotives or railcars. The line from Switzerland is electrified using the Swiss standard of 15kV and 16.7Hz from an overhead line. Only one terminal platform in the station is electrified, and this is used by all trains from Switzerland.

Train Services[edit]

The station is served by the following service(s):

Train services on the Upper Rhine Railway are operated by Deutsche Bahn, whilst trains from Switzerland are operated by Swiss Federal Railways (S27) and THURBO (S41).
