The Zuffenhausen station is a hub of the Stuttgart S-Bahn in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen . With its six platform tracks, it is one of the largest train stations in the Stuttgart area .

According to Deutsche Bahn AG, the Zuffenhausen station corresponds to station category 3.


Start time

On October 15, 1846, the Royal Württemberg State Railroad put the Zuffenhausen station into operation. It was one of the stations of the Württembergische Zentralbahn from Stuttgart to Ludwigsburg and had a one-story reception building, which from 1855 also housed the post office. In addition to passengers from Zuffenhausen, travelers from Korntal in particular also used the new means of transport in the neighboring town.

In 1852, the state railroad expanded the northern line between Stuttgart and Bietigheim to two tracks .

Zuffenhausen becomes a railway junction

Since the beginning of the 1860s, the management of the state railway planned a connection from the royal seat to the northern Black Forest. After lengthy controversies about a route via Böblingen or Zuffenhausen, the state parliament passed a law on August 13, 1865, to branch off the Black Forest Railway in Zuffenhausen from the Northern Railway and to lead it via Leonberg and Weil der Stadt to Calw .

Zuffenhausen station around 1870

The first section between Zuffenhausen and Ditzingen was opened to traffic on September 23, 1868. It took almost four years for the state railway to complete the route. For the new wedge station, Carl Julius Abel built a new, larger reception building in 1868 that was appropriate to the increased number of passengers. A two-storey extension was attached to a three-storey front building. A polygonal extension similar to an apse formed the conclusion to the south . It served as a waiting room. The building thus resembled the reception buildings in Jagstfeld , Brötzingen and Waiblingen - also built by Abel . A restoration was set up due to the waiting times when changing trains . A goods shed and a locomotive shed with a workshop were also added.

In the meantime, industrialization began for the village . In 1868 it was home to a cotton factory, a steam brick and an oil mill. Later, furniture manufacturers in particular made a name for themselves in Zuffenhausen. Due to the rapidly increasing population to over 10,000, the royal government elevated Zuffenhausen to the city of April 23, 1907.

Reichsbahn time

As early as 1907, the state parliament approved the four-track expansion between Stuttgart Hbf and Ludwigsburg. In May 1926, the Deutsche Reichsbahn completed the section between Feuerbach and Post 12 (south of Kornwestheim Pbf ). The city ​​of Zuffenhausen was particularly hard hit by the economic crisis , causing a sharp drop in tax revenues. In this emergency, the local council suggested incorporation into the city of Stuttgart. After approval by the population, this took place on April 1, 1931. One month later, on May 1, 1931, the Reichsbahn renamed the station in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen.

After the electrification of two tracks, Stuttgart suburban traffic began on May 15, 1933 on the Stuttgart Hbf – Ludwigsburg section .

Federal Railroad Time

1973 a new SpDr-L60 signal box was put into operation.

The Deutsche Bundesbahn converted the station for the S-Bahn . The relics from the 19th century disappeared. In 1980 the old station building was demolished and replaced in 1982 by today's new building. In addition to the reception buildings in Waiblingen from 1980 and Ludwigsburg from 1992, it is one of the few new station buildings to replace old structures after the reconstruction in Württemberg.

The track plan in today's S-Bahn area of ​​the station was fundamentally changed in the course of the construction work. The overpass structure for the track in the direction of Weil der Stadt was also built.


The S-Bahn station is to be made barrier-free by 2030.

Rail operations

The Zuffenhausen station is a railway junction. At this point, the Frankenbahn separates from the Württemberg Black Forest Railway, which has its zero point here. Tracks 2 to 6 are located on the Frankenbahn. The S-Bahn to Stuttgart Schwabstraße stop at track 2, and the S-Bahn to Bietigheim and Backnang at track 4. Tracks 3, 5 and 6 are used by passing trains.

As planned, 320 to 330 trains stop each day .

Track 11, which is used by the S-Bahn to Weil der Stadt and Böblingen, is located on an elevated platform that is connected by a bridge to Schwieberdinger Straße above the station. The 991 m long flyover structure crosses the S-Bahn track Ludwigsburg-Stuttgart and the freight track Kornwestheim-Nordbahnhof. The level 385 m long middle section (with a 210 m long platform) is followed by ramps 290 and 268 m long, inclined at 30 per mil on both sides.

Track 12 serves the S-Bahn to Stuttgart Schwabstraße, and until December 2012 also individual trains of the Württemberg railway company that ran between Feuerbach and Weissach .

The Zuffenhausen interlocking Zf is a relay interlocking of the type DrL60. The Zuffenhausen station is also assigned the Stuttgart-Zazenhausen depot on the Stuttgart-Untertürkheim – Kornwestheim railway line as a part of the station , and the Kornwestheim Pbf station to the north is remote-controlled from here.

In June 2016, a 1.4 million euro renovation of the signal box was commissioned as part of the Stuttgart 21 project.
