Apeldoorn is a railway station, located in the municipality of Apeldoorn, The Netherlands. Journey time to Amsterdam is about 1 hour 10 minutes.

History

The station was opened on 15 May 1876. It was then part of the Oosterspoorweg, which runs from Amsterdam to Zutphen. It was opened when the Amersfoort to Zutphen section was comleted.

The station building of Apeldoorn is not related to any of the standard stations, but it has similarities with stations built in that period. It consists of an upper middle portion with two lower short side wings. The station building was saved in connection with a massive refurbishment of the station from 2004 to 2008.

Parts of this refurbishment include, Closure of the level crossings at and near the station, where passengers and cyclists would pass to get to Apeldoorn Zuid, Operning of a new cycle tunnel under the station, railway and the adjacent road. The front square of the station was renewed with this. There were also lifts placed to go up to the platforms.

**Apeldoorn - Zwolle (No longer remains)
**Apeldoorn - Dieren (VSM Steam Railway)
**Apeldoorn - Deventer came into use in 1887.
