HistoryEdit

 
The newly opened Odder station in 1884.

The station opened on 19 June 1884 as the railway company Hads-Ning Herreders Jernbane (HHJ) opened a railway line from Aarhus to Hov. In 1904, Odder station also became the eastern terminus of the new Horsens-Odder railway line, which connected Odder with Horsens.

The Horsens-Odder Line closed in 1967, whereas the section of the Odder Line from Odder to Hov was closed in 1977 and Odder station became the southern terminus of the Odder Line. In 2016, the station was temporarily closed along with the Odder Line while it's being reconstructed to form part of the Aarhus light rail system, scheduled to open in 2017.
