I've been there several times, especially when I was living there, although I came back after some years and I saw that is even improved! Lot of shops, places to eat, entertainment and very clean and safe. I'd say is one of the best stations in Germany, in addition, now with the city tunnel crossing in the underground is even... More

What a beautiful station, worth taking a train to Leipzig just to see it. Architectually it is stunning and the facilities are excellent. Lots of very good retail outlets to complement the beautiful structure.

The first impression of me was that it is so much beautiful. The first ground is like the dance floor for a ball.

Whether you do any shopping or not, if you arrive or leave by train don't fail to pause to admire Leipzig's absolutely stunning Grand Central Station, especially the vast, high transept (for want of a better word), the foyer, and the facade. The people on the information desk in the middle of the transept, to the right of the top... More

Leipzig train station is probably the most impressive one I've ever seen. It is very modern and in winter there is a Christmas market inside selling beautiful things.

We were surprised because today, Nov 30th, santa claus arrived in deutschebahn train (there was a band inside the station). There is a great weihnachtsmarkt inside the station and also good stores!! Take some time to enjoy if you like these kind of programs.

There are plenty of places to get a bite to eat, two supermarkets, a post office and a huge electronics store, not to mention the multiple clothes stores, there are chocolate shops, souvenir shops, backers, cafe, ice cream parlours, phone shops, a carousel for kids...

A huge and old building with distintive architeture, it is a landmark close to the historic downtown. Leipzig is such a beautiful city and its railway station add a special flavour to it.

The Hauptbahnhof has been raised (1910-1915) as a merger of the Dresdener Bahnhof (right part) and the Magdeburger Bahnhof. In the architecture and decoration they have embedded uniquely the cultural sensitivity of Sachsen/Dresden on one site, and the millitary disciplince of Preussen on the other site. Nice shopping center and not cold. The renovation architects end 1990's have been able... More

Leipzig railway station is the largest 'head' station in Europe and therefore impressive to see. It is a must visit when going to Leipzig. But don't spend too long passing by the different shops inside it as there are many other things worthwhile in this ex-DDR city.
