This is a very attractive station and very well laid out. It has some beautiful architectural detailing, though I admit we didn't pay that much attention while focusing on travel. It's easy to find where you are going and there are the usual amenities such as an ATM and pay restrooms.

its a lovely station, can surely appreciate the superiority of German HBFs over their Belgian and French counterparts. not the mention the terrific tunnels and shopping malls inside the HBF.

Normally people rate train stations for their services and convenience, but this is a great place to eat. On Sunday afternoons, most places near the station are closed, but you will be spoiled for choice in the station. I can't really rate any one restaurant because we had a main course at one, desert at another, and finished with coffee... More

The Leipzig Hauptbahnhof (Main Station) offers a variety of shops and a large food court as well as supermarkets. Hours are 9:30am -10pm. Very convienient if you need to get some food or want to spend some time waiting for your connecting train.

You'll probably start your visit here. That's the best idea as it's a great transit point to all important trams and buses (Keep in mind that Leipzig isn't a big city so you can walk easily to your hotel or any point of interest if it's in the city center). The architecture is stunning and every shop fits to its... More

We took the train from Berlin into Leipzig for a few days and were very pleasantly surprised how fabulous the trip was and how wonderful the Leipzig Hauptbahnhof is. When the train arrives, you walk directly into the shopping heart of the station. There are several clothing stores, a book store, coffee shops and other retail venues. The entire plaza... More

Leipzig main train station is very large. The layout is clear and easy to navigate. Above all, it is clean. Added to this is a huge shopping mall which add a lot of services to the station. I was there on a sunday and all the shops in the 'Arkaden' were open.

This place is enormous and so much more than a railway station, two or three levels of shops and places to eat, it's clean and modern without being pretentious, busy without feeling crowded. Also a great place to get breakfast and people watch.
