The present building was erected in 1899; at the same time the Mölln–Hollenbek railway was built to connect with the Hagenow Land–Bad Oldesloe railway (also known as the Kaiserbahn or "Imperial Railway"). The Mölln–Hollenbek line was closed in 1959. Today only the Lübeck-Lüneburg railway is still in operation.

Infrastructure edit

The entrance building, which was built in 1851 with Prussian architectural features, is closed as a result of vandalism. The unused part of the entrance building formerly housed the Lok-Haus restaurant and a kiosk.

The station area was renovated in 2008. The old semaphore signals were replaced by colour light signals and the trackbed of track 2 was renewed and the level crossing was completely rebuilt.

Rail services edit

The station has two tracks, but in December 2008, only track 1 was used by passenger traffic since the crossing in Ratzeburg has been reactivated and trains now cross there. Freight traffic only occasionally uses the line.
