Attiki station (Greek: Αττική) is a railway station in Athens, Greece. The station opened in 1885. It was the main hub of Attica Railways, a metre gauge network connecting donwtown Athens with the mining town of Lavrion and the northern suburbs of Marousi and Kifissia. Lavrion trains were diverted to the SPAP line in 1929 and passenger services to Kifissia were suspended in 1938.

In 1949 the station was converted to standard gauge and became the northern terminus of the Athens-Piraeus line of Hellenic Electric Railways. The new electrified line was again extended to Kifissia, leaving Attiki as an intermediate station. Two underground platforms were added in 2000 for Athens Metro Line 2 trains. The station entrance and the ISAP platforms were renovated extensively in 2003-2004.

Part of the old station is used as a trolleybus garage by ILPAP.

Today the station is served by the ISAP and Athens Metro urban networks. There are train storage sidings for ISAP trains and a service connection between the ISAP and Athens Metro lines.
