It is a really beautiful Hauptbahnhof - Main Station. Full of history and beauty. Is also a complete shopping center, with stores and a Rewe Supermarket that works even on Sundays - normally all the markets are closed on Sunday in Germany.

There are lots of shops of which many are open until 22:00 during the week! Great place to go grab something quick to eat while touring the city.

There are a lot of different cafés and shops in the Bahnhof. But if you are looking for a toilet, there is no toilet at Starbucks.There is one outside though but they will charge you 1€ for it. There is also a shower which I have never seen at a German train station before! (7€) Otherwise just a regular German... More

One of the most beautiful main station in Germany I guess. It is modern, clean and full of shops, bars and restaurants (I mean like Subway, Pizza Hut, McD, KFC and so on). Really nice to spend time before your travel.

This train station has a lot for the traveler to do while waiting between trains. It includes a multi level shopping mall with many stores and eateries, and even fun for kids. Children can rent stuffed horses which actually move along and the child bounces upon the saddle! Some big ones for big people, too!

When it's cold and wet outside, this is a place to go! There are shops of every sort as well as reasonably priced eating places (but don't expect gastronomy here). There were also Christmas market stalls and a great band when we visited. Even on a Sunday it is animated.

Took a detour during a train trip to visit this massive station and was not disappointed. Wonderful structure and well looked after. Many shops and great restaurants.If your a railroad follower then this is a great place to be!
