Hardinxveld-Giessendam is a railway station for Hardinxveld-Giessendam in the Netherlands. It is located on the MerwedeLingelijn, between Dordrecht and Geldermalsen. The train services are operated by Arriva.


The station was opened as the Giessendam-Oudekerk railway station on 16 July 1885. To the east, outside the two villages, was the Hardinxveld-Giessendam railway station. When the latter railway station was closed down on 15 May 1927, the railway station Giessendam-Oudekerk was renamed "Giessendam-Neder Hardinxveld". The railway station building was severely damaged during World War II, and had to be demolished in 1945. On 2 June 1957, the name of the railway station was changed to its current name, and a year later a new station building was constructed. The building is now used as a restaurant.
