The station is located on the Vendsyssel Line from Aalborg to Frederikshavn, between Hjørring station and Tolne station. It opened in 1871.[4] The train services are currently operated by the railway company Nordjyske Jernbaner which runs frequent regional train services from the station to Aalborg and Frederikshavn.[3]

HistoryEdit

The station opened in 1871 as the branch from Nørresundby to Frederikshavn of the new Nørresundby-Frederikshavn railway line opened on 16 August 1871.[4][5]

On 7 January 1879, at the opening of the Limfjord Railway Bridge, the Vendsyssel line was connected with Aalborg station, the Randers-Aalborg railway line and the rest of the Danish rail network.[6]

Today, the station is closed but continues as a halt.[5]

In 2017, operation of the regional rail services on the Vendsyssel Line to Aalborg and Frederikshavn were transferred from DSB to the local railway company Nordjyske Jernbaner.[7]

ArchitectureEdit

The station building from 1871 was designed by the Danish architect N.P.C. Holsøe.[5]
