Bayreuth Hauptbahnhof is the main railway station in the German town of Bayreuth, in northern Bavaria.



Railway lines run north to Neuenmarkt-Wirsberg, and from there to Bamberg and over the Schiefe Ebene to Hof, east to Weidenberg, southeast to Weiden and south to Schnabelwaid with connections to Nuremberg on the Pegnitz Valley Railway. The lines around Bayreuth are all single-tracked and non-electrified.

Train services

Since 23 May 1992 tilting diesel multiple units of Class 610 have worked the last-named route. These were bought by the former Deutsche Bundesbahn specifically for the winding track. Since the 2006/2007 timetable change, Bayreuth has no longer been connected to the DB's long-distance network.

The Franken-Sachsen-Express used to provide a direct connection to Dresden from December 2007 until December 2013 every two hours. The technology used for this was the Class 612 diesel multiple set. Since then these services run only from Nürnberg Hbf to Hof Hbf. There are Regional-Express links via Lichtenfels to Bamberg and Würzburg, and via Lichtenfels and Kronach to Saalfeld.
