The railway stationEdit

HistoryEdit

The Royal Württemberg State Railways opened the Friedrichshafen–Ravensburg section of the Württemberg Southern Railway in 1847 and extended it through Aulendorf to Biberach on 26 May 1849.

In 1869, the Württemberg Allgäu and the Herbertingen–Aulendorf lines were opened and Aulendorf station became the main railway junction in Upper Swabia.

The construction of the railways during a time of great distress in rural Aulendorf kept many people from starvation or emigration. The railway and the post office were the largest employer in Aulendorf at that time.

Rail servicesEdit

The station is classified by Deutsche Bahn as a category 4 station.[2]
