Radebeul-Weintraube station is in Radebeul in the German state of Saxony. It is classified by Deutsche Bahn as a Haltepunkt . Weintraube station was opened in 1838 in the Lößnitz fields as the first station out of Dresden on Germany's oldest long-distance railway, the Leipzig–Dresden railway. It is now the oldest station still regularly served in Saxony.
Construction of the Leipzig–Dresden railway was begun from both ends simultaneously and it was opened in stages between 1837 and 1839. The 8.18 km long section from Dresden-Neustadt to Weintraube was opened on 19 July 1838. The current Radebeul-Weintraube station was opened near the royal estate of Hoflößnitz as the first station on the line from Dresden and the first station in the borders of the modern town of Radebeul. It was named Weintraube after the name of the nearby vineyard the Goldene Weintraube and its similarly named inn. The innkeeper took the opportunity to open an inn next to the station called Kleine Weintraube .
