The Oberland station is a location and potential settlement in the Commonwealth in 2287.[1]


Oberland Station has one permanent building, which is a railway check station at the center. The settlement's small size and confined space make it ideal for a vertical settlement. It has a small farm area with a few tato plants, cooking station, and two settlers when it is first discovered. Oberland may be attacked frequently by raiders and super mutants.

  • East of Oberland Station is the UFO crash site, part of a random encounter that occurs after reaching level 20 or by following the garbled radio beacon from relay tower 1DL-109.
  • If the player character tries to move the original settlers to another settlement, they give the message "You can't move this person from this settlement." This is likely because they are quest givers. As such, the settlement can't be abandoned unless the original settlers die.


Oberland Station appears only in Fallout 4.
