To mark the commissioning of the "Stendal Hochschule" stop, a family festival will be held on the university campus from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 25.

After eleven months of construction, the new train station named Stendal Hochschule will be ceremoniously opened on Saturday, June 25, 2022, and has already been available for use for about two weeks.

On that day, the S-Bahn line S1 will run free of charge from Stendal main station to the new train station next to the campus every 30 minutes.

Stendal's mayor Klaus Schmotz will welcome guests at 11 a.m. on the Radio Brocken show truck. Then Saxony-Anhalt's Minister for Infrastructure and Digital Affairs Dr. Lydia Hüskens, Deutsche Bahn's Group Representative for Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia Martin Walden and University Rector Prof. Dr. Manuela Schwartz will speak.

Interested parties can learn more about the new stop and the university campus during free guided tours. NASA GmbH will present other rail projects in the Altmark region that will be realized within the next few years. Parallel to this, live music, BMX art and a clown round off the stage program. So that the small guests do not come too briefly, a varied child program is offered to them. Also for the physical well-being is provided. A food truck and a barbecue stand will be offering hearty meals, while ice cream and drinks will be available to cool down. (Source: NASA)

Since June 10, 2022, trains of the S-Bahn Mittelelbe S 1 (Schönebeck-Magdeburg-Stendal-Wittenberge) stop at the station every hour. With the new construction of the Stendal Hochschule station, two outdoor platforms were built, each 155 meters long. These are equipped with seating, showcases, waste garbage cans, weather protection, information and wayfinding systems and LED lighting. Access is via stairs and step-free via ramps. The state of Saxony-Anhalt and DB invested around 6 million euros.
