Zürich Wipkingen railway station (German: Bahnhof Zürich Wipkingen) is a railway station in the Wipkingen quarter of the Swiss city of Zürich. It is served by line S24 of the Zürich S-Bahn.[1][2]

To the north of Wipkingen station, the line enters Wipkingen Tunnel, which emerges on the approach to Oerlikon station.[2]

Prior to the opening of the Weinberg Tunnel on 14 June 2014, this station was served by Zürich S-Bahn lines S2, S8 and S14. These lines all now run via the new tunnel route, and the half-hourly S24 was extended from Zürich Hauptbahnhof station to Zürich Oerlikon station to ensure that Zürich Wipkingen did not lose service.[3]
