Hellerup Station is a regional and S-train railway station serving the district of Hellerup in Copenhagen, Denmark.

It is served by regional trains on the Coast Branch, as well as S-trains.

The station was designed by V.C.H. Wolf and opened on 22 July 1863, simultaneous with the start of service on the Klampenborg line. The station was among the very first on Copenhagen's S-train network. The very first S-train line (Klampenborg station to Vanløse station) included Hellerup station. This was in 1934 and the S-trains did initially follow the northern path of today's F-line. Hellerup station was the fourth station from Klampenborg and the same counted from Vanløse. Since then has the southern part of the F-line got a new path and several new stations have opened, all south of Hellerup though.

The regional train lines goes from Nivå station to Copenhagen Airport via the City Centre, which is the most S-train like of all regional railway lines in and around Copenhagen. And from Elsinore via the City Centre to Copenhagen Airport and further (as Øresund train ) to Scania and some other provinces in southern Sweden. Each hour departures 6 regional trains in each direction.

The station also serves Copenhagen's S-train lines B, C, E, and F services. For the latter line is the station its northern end station or terminus. Weekdays do 60 S-train departure every hour. Twelve departures on Line-F (which uses 5 minutes between departures), and six departures in each direction for the other three lines. This gives 72 departing regional- and S-trains every hour from the station's five platform tracks. This doesn't quite reflect the number of passengers who use the station, but it is still a rather important station. Hellerup station is located within Copenhagen municipality, but the immediate surroundings formes the Hellerup borough of Gentofte municipality.

Central Hellerup isn't located far away from the station and is along the main roads built up of blocks with 4 to 5 floors, at the smaller streets can many of Copenhagen's largest villas be found and the Hellerup area is one of the richest in Denmark.
