The station Osterburken is located at the Franconia Railway and the railway Neckarelz-Osterburken and is thus a railway junction . It is served by regional railways , regional express trains and the RheinNeckar S-Bahn .


The train station is located approx. 300 meters from the Osterburken city ​​center.


The Royal Württemberg State Railways (KWSt.E) opened the station in 1866 as the end point of the section from Heilbronn to Osterburken on the Lower Jagst and Neckar Railway , now part of the Frankenbahn. At the same time, the Mannheim - Würzburg ( Badische Odenwaldbahn ) line was opened.

At the end of March 1945 an “evacuation” train carrying concentration camp prisoners from Neckarelz concentration camp was parked in front of the site for three days. Nine people who were buried in a collective grave in the current old cemetery died, a memorial stone is there.

The S1 line of the RheinNeckar S-Bahn was opened for the 2003/2004 timetable change on December 14, 2003 . As part of the expansion of the S-Bahn, the platforms on tracks 1 (house platform ) and 3 ( stump track ) were made accessible to the disabled and provided with weather protection shelters. 140 meter long and 76 centimeter high platforms have since made it possible to board the S-Bahn trains at the same level, which generally use platform 1 almost exclusively.
