Štrba railway station (Slovak: Železnicná stanica Štrba) is a break-of-gauge junction station serving the village of Štrba, in the Prešov Region, northeastern Slovakia. The station forms part of the standard gauge Košice–Bohumín Railway (KBD), and is the highest point on that line. It is also the junction between the KBD and the Štrbské Pleso – Štrba rack railway, a metre gauge line of which it is the valley terminus. As such, the station is a gateway to the High Tatras mountain range, a popular tourist destination. The station is currently owned by Železnice Slovenskej republiky (ŽSR); train services are operated by Železnicná spolocnost Slovensko (ZSSK).

The station was opened in 8 December 1871, upon the commissioning of the KBD's Žilina–Poprad section. It became a junction when the rack railway opened in 1896. Although the rack railway was closed in 1932 and lifted soon afterwards, it was reconstructed at the end of the 1960s, and reopened in 1970 in time for that year's FIS Nordic World Ski Championships.
