Location within Netherlands

Zwolle is the main railway station of Zwolle in Overijssel, Netherlands. The station opened on 6 June 1864 and is on the Utrecht–Kampen railway, also known as the Centraalspoorweg, the Zwolle–Almelo railway, the Arnhem–Leeuwarden railway, the Zwolle–Stadskanaal railway and the Lelystad–Zwolle railway, also known as the Hanzelijn.

The station is a major hub for the Northern Netherlands. It is the only way trains can get from the north of the country, to any other region of the Netherlands.


On 31 August 2010, the principal stakeholders in the railway station—ProRail, Nederlandse Spoorwegen and the municipality of Zwolle—started the ZwolleSpoort project. This project included a major renovation of the existing station, an increase in capacity and an overhaul of the entire public transportation organization in the city.[1] The immediate starting point for the project was the Hanzelijn project, which was expected to increase passenger traffic by 33% in the period up to 2020. In order to deal with the extra traffic, the passenger tunnel (which was 5 meters wide) in the station was replaced by a new tunnel 17 meters wide and 120 meters long. The new tunnel, which opened on 26 June 2015, leads onto a new bus terminal at the southern end of the station. The tunnel also features shopping facilities.

In addition, the project entailed increasing the capacity and efficiency of the railway emplacement. The new Hanzelijn was accommodated by a new, fourth railway platform and by replacing the 34 points near the station with 15 longer ones which allow a more efficient railway pattern and allow trains to pass at higher speeds.[1]
