A huge mall within a train station. Several levels of stores, restaurants, ice cream shops, and even grocery stores. Really lovely and a must see.

This, depending on measurement type, the largest rail station in Europe, the other being Milan. The 2 measurements are area covered and number of tracks. Either way, it's a big place and rather efficient. The retail stores sell a wide variety of merchandise.

This is a beast of a railway station and is worth a special trip to visit even if you don't come to Leipzig by train ! Millions have been spent refurbishing it (and I don't just mean building the huge shopping arcade incorporated in it) and it was worth every pfennig. They have also added underground platforms as part of... More

Yes this is the biggest railway station in Europe; but the main hall now contains many stores and restaurants in a tasteful way , very easy to use for train travellers and the new U-Bahn Tunnel has a platform underneath here aswell. The Best View is saved for jumping on any tram from the stops in front then looking back... More

The concourse of the station has had a huge shopping mall built underneath it, but my personal favourite is that on platform 24 there are a row of historic trains including a steam engine.

Bizarre to rate a station I know. But this one is bloody magnificent. Never seen such a large structure.

Huge Railway station. We were amazed to see such a large station. It has shoppping precincts on the lower floors. I am not sure who the architect was, but it is pretty impressive. I am sure it is larger than Grand Central Station in New York! This was rather a surprise. It seemed bigger than the HBF in Berlin.

This station has everything shops galore food halls go underground via the escalators to cross the huge road above. There is a wonderful display of wooden toys in the old waiting room which is shared with costa coffee. We didn't want a train but were so pleased we went in the station
