Warsaw Powiśle (Polish: Warszawa Powiśle) is a railway station in Warsaw, Poland. Located in the district of Powiśle stretching between Aleje Jerozolimskie near Rondo Charles'a de Gaulle'a (high-level entrance) and the intersection of Aleja 3 Maja and ul. Kruczkowskiego (low-level entrance). The station sits on a rail embankment extending from the terrace of the Vistula river on which the city centre is built, ending at its western side with the entrance to the Cross-City tunnel. The station has two side platforms flanking the suburban tracks of the Warsaw Cross-City Line used by the regional trains run by Koleje Mazowieckie and Szybka Kolej Miejska. The mainline tracks can be seen from the station. They are located behind a fence, which extends for the length of the station. The station building was designed by Arseniusz Romanowicz and Piotr Szymaniak in 1955. The location allows for convenient transfers to city trams and buses serving the eastern part of the city centre.

The station is used for passing mainline trains, when there are engineering works on the mainline. Suburban trains may skip the station and use the mainline tracks, if there are engineering works on the suburban tracks. There is no connection between the suburban and mainline tracks at the station or immediately before or after it.
