Whether you’re interested in exploring the scenic mountains or soaking up some culture, there are plenty of things to see and do in this enchanting place.

Acharnes railway station (Greek: ) is a station on the Piraeus–Platy railway line in Athens, Greece. It was opened on 8 March 1904.

Located north of the Acharnes village, it serves as an interchange between the Piraeus–Platy and Athens Suburban railway lines. It is served by daily train services from Athens to Chalkida and vice versa. The station is also a major transport hub for the northern region of the country, serving passengers on routes to and from the Greek islands.

The station has two side platforms and a low-level platform in the median of the Attiki Odos toll highway. It is served by the Athens to Thessaloniki and Athens to Patras lines, and by Intercity and Regional trains from Piraeus to Platy and to the Peloponnese. The station is located next to the Folk Art Museum of Acharnes, a museum founded in 1977 by the local Mountaineering Society and later bequeathed to the Historical and Folklore Association.

The back-to-back incidents that struck the Greek railway system have highlighted serious problems with operations, maintenance and communication protocols. This is a wake-up call for the Hellenic Railways Organization to step up its efforts to ensure that these incidents remain isolated events rather than a recurring pattern.
