The Unna station is the main passenger station of the Westphalian county town of Unna . Other train stations in the city that are regularly served by passenger traffic are Unna-Königsborn, Unna West, Massen, Lünern and Hemmerde .
The station counts around 10,000 travelers and visitors and around 200 trains per day.
In 1866 the BME built a line from Unna to Hamm to the main line of the Cologne-Mindener Eisenbahn-Gesellschaft , which was later continued to the Hagen-Hamm line , making Unna station a transfer station of regional importance.
The Prussian State Railways then built a railway line from Fröndenberg to Kamen to connect the three east-west lines in this area. The southern part was opened in 1899 and is now connected to the Hönnetalbahn to Neuenrade. The northern part was initially opened for freight traffic in 1900 and a year later also for passenger traffic. Today, this route is only used as far as Unna-Königsborn, namely by S-Bahn line 4 of the Rhine-Ruhr S-Bahn .
There are currently no long-distance passenger rail trains stopping in Unna . As part of the Deutsche Bahn “IC-neu” project, Unna station is to become a stop on an intercity line from December 2020 .
