I visit Leipzig every January for a conference. This place never fails to impress me. Large rail station with a shopping centre in the cellar. Left luggage lockers by platform 2. Good gluewine from the stall by the platform. Download the Deutsche Bahn App before you go so you get to the correct platform.

This is a old Main station, with a lot of charme. This were two different Main stations before the border was intact. Infrastructure is very well and clear.

Have been using Leipzig Hbf for my entire eurotrip. Oh Man! what an amazing building with an under ground shopping place. You get everything from groceries to electronics to apparels all at the same place and also of course - the amazing DB travel.

A very busy station with trains coming in and out every few minutes. There is a line up of classic traction in the far right platform. The station has 2 level shopping mall inside with many places to sit and eat.

Amazing space. Just to stand inside it is worth the trip to Leipzig. Google the details. Shopping centre is OK too.

A lot of shops are closed in Leipzig on a Sunday but the train station is open for business and as we were there in January most of the shops had sales on. There are also lots of opportunities to eat

This station is in sharp contrast with that in Berlin, which is an innovative modern building which handles more trains in far less space. This is a traditional huge terminal station with over 20 tracks. It has many halls and it is connected with a very large shopping mall with supermarkets and most of the same stores you will find...

Very impressive, huge train station. In December it looks like a fairy tale, with large lights everywhere, stunning. Lots of shops, food and drinks.

This station is one of the largest in Europe it has a huge shopping area. The station it self is quite historic and has been brought back to original condition.
