Alphen a/d Rijn railway station is a railway station in Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands.


The railway station was opened in 1878, as part of a railway connection between Leiden and Woerden. A connection between Alphen aan den Rijn and Uithoorn was opened in 1915.

The line was extended to Gouda in 1932, but the connection between Alphen aan den Rijn and Uithoorn was closed in 1936.

The railway station was renovated for the RijnGouweLijn from Gouda in 2004, involving the construction of an additional platform.

In 2007 a major redesign of the railway station and its surrounding area started. The original railway station building (build in 1878) was demolished to make room for a tunnel underneath the railway and a bike storage facility. The new tunnel will link the old town center with the new district "Kerk en Zanen", which used to be separated from the town centre by the railway. The tunnel and bike storage facility opened mid 2010.
