Weinheim (Bergstraße) station is a station in the town of Weinheim in the German state of Baden-Württemberg. It is served by Intercity services on the Main-Neckar Railway between Frankfurt and Heidelberg/Mannheim. The Weschnitz Valley Railway (Weschnitztalbahn) to Furth in the Odenwald starts at Weinheim station. There is also a freight railway to Viernheim, the last remaining section of the former Weinheim–Worms railway.

The station building was substantially renovated and the canopy of the “home” platform was refurbished as part of an economic stimulus program from 2008/09 to 2011.[3] The station is classified by Deutsche Bahn as a category 4 station.[1]

Public transport[edit]

The station is connected by the Oberrheinische Eisenbahn-Gesellschaft (Upper Rhine Railway Company, OEG) with the rest of the Rhine-Neckar region. It runs from here to Viernheim, Mannheim and Heidelberg. The OEG stop at Weinheim station is called Luisenstraße, while the OEG’s own Weinheim station is about 400 metres further south.

There is a bus connection to city and regional lines and a call taxi service.

Weinheim station has six platform tracks. Tracks 5 and 6 are used for the Weschnitz Valley Railway and the other four tracks are used by passenger and freight trains on the Main-Neckar Railway.


In earlier times, Weinheim station had a large and busy freight and marshalling yard. Its largest customer was the Freudenberg Group, which was based in Weinheim and transported its goods via rail over a dedicated connection. Today, most tracks have been removed, only the overgrown track area and the signal boxes are still preserved.
