HistoryEdit

The station was opened on 1 May 1896 and is located on the Sittard–Herzogenrath railway and the Heerlen–Schin op Geul railway. The station was an important mining station, until the mines closed down.

As part of the Maankwartier ("Moon Quarter") project, construction of an entirely new train station started in December 2012.
