The station opened on November 1, 1934 when S-train service was extended from København H to Valby. A fourth platform was inaugurated in 2009.
The four platforms are located under Dybbølsbro, a viaduct connecting Kalvebod Brygge and Havneholmen with the rest of Vesterbro across the railway tracks. They are accessed from the bridge with stairs or lifts.
