Ede-Wageningen is a railway station located in Ede, Netherlands. It is situated on the Amsterdam–Arnhem railway and the Nijkerk–Ede-Wageningen railway. The station is the main Intercity station, but is not in the centre of the town. The station also serves Wageningen, a city 8 km to the south of Ede.

History

The station opened on 16 May 1845 on the Amsterdam–Arnhem railway as the Ede-Rhijnspoor station. The railway was originally planned to run via Wageningen instead of Ede, but this did not go ahead. Until 1937 there was a tram service from Ede to Wageningen, but this was replaced at that time by a bus service. This is when the station changed to Ede-Wageningen.

In 2022 major construction started on completely replacing the outdated building with a much more modern, useful and friendly train station.[1] The new station is expected to be finished in 2024, with the area around the station following a year later.[2]
