This is by far the largest train station I've been in. Simply a great building. Shopping and eating available, too!

What can you say about a train station? Oh wait, that's because the Leipzig Hauptbahnhof (aka Leipzig's main train station) is more than just a train station. In addition to the very well-marked platforms, the station also boasts three levels of shops and restaurants that cater for everyone. The station also enjoys a good central location with the city's main... More

The rail network in Germany puts the UK to shame this station is very old yet has great shops and fast food outlets.

This is a splendid, well proportioned, grand building. The correct platform and train information are easily obtained. As well as facilities at train level there are two further levels full of a variety of shops and cafes. Waiting for your train is an unusual pleasure in such surroundings.

We flew into Leipzig airport and took train into town; a quick 14 min ride. Arrived underground in the new portion of the Hauptbahnhof - a great addition that makes for easier access to other part of the city. Quick and efficient access; great service and the added bonus of having a complete shopping center inside the Bahnhof.

There are a couple of supermarkets (Aldi... More

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.
