With the construction of the Elberfeld – Dortmund trunk line developed by Friedrich Harkort for the Bergisch-Märkische Eisenbahn-Gesellschaft in 1848/49, Hagen was connected to the rapidly expanding railway network. This was the impetus for Hagen to quickly develop into an industrial city with a steel and metal industry. After the opening of the Ruhr-Sieg route to Siegen via Altena in 1861, the city also gained importance as a railway junction.
The neo-Baroque, designed by the architect Walter Morin and inaugurated on September 14, 1910 reception building , built of brick and partially covered with sandstone, survived the bombing of the Second World War not Although unharmed, but was in contrast to other stations in the Ruhr region not completely destroyed whereby it can still be admired today. Here, in 1911 , Karl Ernst Osthaus had the glass painting “The artist as a teacher for trade and commerce” by Jan Thorn Prikker installed in the main window above the entrance .
The two-aisled platform hall from 1910, which was designed by Stephany and spans all but three of the platforms, has also been preserved. It was restored in the 1990s and is an important example of the steel hall construction that has been developed since the late 19th century. In Westphalia and the Ruhr area it is the only preserved “classic” platform hall and one of the few of its kind in Germany. Unlike many other station halls in the Ruhr area, it was not destroyed in the heavy Anglo-American bombing raids on Hagen during World War II.
The main station is a so-called "separation station in staggered construction" with switches and overtaking tracks on the two main platforms in the hall. This makes it possible to handle up to four (short) trains at the same time on one platform. As a disadvantage, travelers sometimes have to accept long walks.
Hagen Central Station is a listed building and part of the Route of Industrial Culture .
Refurbishment of the main train station in Hagen
From autumn 2004 to the end of May 2006, the interior of the station was extensively restored for around 1.2 million euros, as planned before the start of the 2006 World Cup . With the reconstruction of the barrel vault , the station hall regained some of its old splendor and details such as the Thorn Prikkers glass window, illuminated by daylight, are clearly recognizable again.
Since October 2014, Hagen main station has been further refurbished, both inside and outside. A total of around 300,000 euros are to be invested in the renovation of the old building. A total of 25,000 to 30,000 travelers pass through the station building every day. The entire reception hall is to be reconstructed according to historical preservation criteria and to regain its once light, bright shape. A lottery and tobacco shop in the middle of the hall was demolished and replaced by a DB information desk for travelers. The former waiting room, which housed a drugstore, was partially exposed again, with a large-scale station clock under monument protection being integrated into a “REWE to go” store in the rear part of the station hall. The underpass to the tracks should also be cleaner and lighter than before. In addition, the platforms should be better adapted to the boarding heights of the trains.
In the next few years, Deutsche Bahn AG plans to comprehensively renovate Hagen Central Station for 31.7 million euros. Nearly 10 million euros are to be provided by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
Further railway systems in Hagen
In the area of freight transport , the regional tasks of the local marshalling yard Hagen Gbf (freight yard), which is directly north of the main station, were transferred to the Schwerte (Ruhr) marshalling yard with the timetable change in December 2005 . On July 31, 2005, the associated container terminal was shut down by Deutsche Bahn. The container station in Wuppertal-Langerfeld took over its duties . Since September 2007, the container terminal has been used again by the Hangartner freight forwarder for a three-weekly train between Hagen and Verona . The Hagen-Vorhalle marshalling yard is a short distance away (2.5 km by rail) .
The train service in also just north of the main station nearby factory Hagen-Eckesey was discontinued in of 2004. Some of the facilities are now used by the Hagen-Eckesey freight wagon service station. From February 2007, Abellio Rail NRW set up a workshop for their Flirt railcars in the halls of the former Hagen heavy-duty group .
At the northern exit of the main station there is the electronic interlocking "Hpf" of the type El S (SIMIS-C), which controls the rail traffic in the main station. It was put into operation on May 21, 1995. In the first construction stage, the parking area also included the stretch from Ennepetal in the south to the Einhaus junction in the north. In 2003 the range was extended to Westhofen, 2007 to Holzwickede.
Regional traffic and S-Bahn
The following regional express , regional train and S-Bahn lines serve the main station in local rail passenger transport . The original connection from line S5 to line S8 and vice versa was largely abandoned in December 2014. Only individual trains in the off-peak times run continuously between Mönchengladbach Hbf and Dortmund Hbf .
Until 2019, three museum railway lines operated by RuhrtalBahn Betriebsgesellschaft mbH served the main station:
|line||Line course||Operating days|
|H||Hagen - Wengern East - Herbede - Henrichshütte - Hattingen (Ruhr)||last May to October: every 1st and 3rd Friday and 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month|

|V||Witten Hbf - Wengern Ost - Hagen - Ennepetal - Schwelm - Wuppertal Hbf||last 4 days in 2018|
The Hagen main station is one of the two most important stops in the Hagen bus network. Almost all lines of the Hagener Straßenbahn AG (apart from suburban lines) stop at the bus station , which was built in 2000 and consists of six stops . There is also a connection to the transport company Ennepe-Ruhr (in the direction of Ennepetal ), the Märkische Verkehrsgesellschaft (in the direction of Breckerfeld , Halver and Kierspe ) and the DB Rheinlandbus (in the direction of Wetter and Schwerte / Ruhr).
