Madrid Chamartín is the name of the second major railway station in Madrid, Spain. Positioned on the north side of the city, it was built at the time of the 1982 Football World Championship. At that time it superseded Atocha station, located closer to the city centre. After Atocha itself was rebuilt in 1992, Chamartin lost much of its importance.

It hosts the railway networks connecting Madrid and the north-western Spain, the AVE (high speed line) from Madrid to Segovia and Valladolid, and Cercanías lines (commuter rail). There are also connections with Atocha station. Under the railway station there is a Metro Station (Chamartin) linking with lines 1 and 10 of the Madrid Metro, for travelling to Madrid city centre.

Placed over the Chamartín Station is the Hotel Chamartín.
