Cottbus station is one of the main railway stations of the German state of Brandenburg. It is located just south of central Cottbus. It is classified by Deutsche Bahn as a category 2 station.




Rail services

The station has lost its former role as a long-distance transport junction. It is served only by two pairs of long-distance trains.


The station built during the renovation in the 1970s remained in many ways an inadequate station, partly because of its lack of continuous tunnels. Deutsche Bahn is planning the renovation of the station. All tracks and platforms of the passenger station are to be rebuilt and the signalling system is to be modernised. The modernisation is expected to cost almost € 100 million.

At the end of 2008, DB Netz was requested by the Federal Railway Authority to demolish large parts of the infrastructure of the former container terminal on the north side of the station. The city of Cottbus plans an extension of Wilhelm-Külz-Straße on the site.
