Geldermalsen is a railway station in the town of Geldermalsen, Netherlands. The station opened on 1 Nov 1868.[1][2] The station is a junction, with an island platform for easy transfers. To reach the platforms from outside of the station, passengers must use a bridge.

The current building dates from 1884.[3] The station is at the junction of two lines: the Utrecht–Boxtel railway and the Elst–Dordrecht railway. The station is currently served by trains from Qbuzz and NS. Previously, Arriva served this station along with NS, but on 9 Dec 2018, Qbuzz took over services from Arriva.[4]
