Jinan railway station (Chinese: 济南站) is a railway station in Jinan, Shandong, China.[1] It is on both the Beijing-Shanghai Railway and Qingdao-Jinan Passenger Railway. It accommodates intercity High Speed services towards destinations as Qingdao, Qingdao North, Yantai, Weihai, Rongcheng and Longkou.

Old Jinan stations[edit]

The predecessor of the current station was constructed in 1912. Serving the Jinpu Railway (Reorganised as part of Beijing-Shanghai Railway in 2007), it was designed by German architect Hermann Fischer. It was controversially demolished and rebuilt in 1992. Between 1915 and 1937, Jinan was home to another railway station of the same name, which served as the western terminus for the Jiaoji Railway, the station building of which is still extant and has since turned into a museum.[2][3]
