Barendrecht railway station is a railway station in Barendrecht, Netherlands, located on the Breda–Rotterdam railway between Rotterdam and Dordrecht. Adjacent to the four tracks of this line are two tracks for the HSL-Zuid and three for freight, as part of the Betuweroute freight route to Zevenaar. The nine tracks are in a 1.5 kilometers (0.93 mi) long roofed structure, much of it covered under a layer of earth, to keep noise at bay. On top is a new city park. At the station itself its four tracks, with the platforms, have a glass roof.

The station was opened on 1 November 1872. This building was replaced by a smaller and more modern building in 1973. A new railway station was opened in 2001. Queen Beatrix visited the station on 16 June 2007, to open the Betuweroute freight route.
