Liestal railway station (German: Bahnhof Liestal) is a railway station in Switzerland, in the municipality of Liestal and canton of Basel-Landschaft.[5][1] The station is on the Swiss Federal Railway's Hauenstein main line, which connects Basel and Olten. It is served by five trains per hour to Basel, four trains per hour to Olten, and hourly trains to Interlaken, Lucerne, and Zürich. Several trains a day operate through to Frankfurt and Berlin. The station is also the junction for, and terminus of, the Waldenburg narrow gauge railway, which operates a half-hourly train service to Waldenburg.[1][6] The Waldenburg line will close in April 2021 for conversion to 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 38 in) gauge.[7] Since 2019, the Swiss Federal Railways has been undertaking renovation and expansion works at Liestal Railway Station which were commissioned by the federal government and which are due to complete in 2025.
