Arnissa Railway Station, Greece

Located in the mountainous region of northern Greece, Arnissa railway station is the gateway to the snowy peaks of the Balkans. It is the main railway station of the Larissa railway system and supports long-distance travel to Larisa, Thessaloniki and the main cities of Northern Greece. It is also connected to Athens Central Railway Station “Eleftherios Venizelos” and the port of Piraeus via suburban railway lines.

On Wednesday Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis visited the site of a train crash that killed dozens of people in the town of Tempi, just north of Arnissa. The prime minister criticized “human error” for the accident, while acknowledging that it was “a tragic human tragedy”. He also congratulated the firefighters who responded to the fire.

Currently, the station serves 3 Reganalal trains daily between Thessaloniki and Florina, with 18 Prostiakos services terminating here. It is housed in the original 19th-century brick-built station building. There is no staffed booking office, but there are waiting rooms and seating. There are no Dot-matrix display departure and arrival screens or timetable posters on the platforms, however, a public payphone is available. There is a forecourt with parking, and a taxi pick-up point is located next to the station.

The best way to save money on your trip from Thessaloniki to Arnissa is by booking well in advance. Advance tickets are usually available up to 3 months before your travel date, and they cost considerably less than if you book on the day of your journey. Having some flexibility in your schedule can help you to find cheaper fares too.
