Worth a look

The place was bigger than expected but perhaps not as grand. It was nice and clean though and not as crowded as I'd expected.

If you like to visit Grand Central Station in NYC, you will like Hauptbahnhof Leipzig. It is LARGE! Train stations are not my thing, but I was still impressed.

This is a wonderful old building, just off the city center of Leipzig. You can catch a train or bus to pretty much anywhere in Leipzig and beyond. You can find fast food from almost any culture. There is the requisite Starbucks and Burger King (with beer service), and lots of fun little shops. There's a handy grocery store The... More

I have never seen such a great station, completely rebuilt on the old design. There are so many shops here and every type of takeaway food you could wish for, and at a reasonable price. Starbuck's as usual offer 30 minutes free wifi so that is useful, plus it also has a great display of the very famous wooden Christmas... More

Although I usually go to Leipzig by car, I never miss a visit to the outstanding train station. It is not just beautiful architecture, but also a fantastic shopping centre with an attractive book store in the first place, with neat and clean places to eat, a hairdresser's etc. etc. - so that you can easily spend an afternoon there!...

OK, it's a very nice one, big and majestic like we used to see in the "old days", and it's very clean and very well kept, which is not easy for such a structure. Anyway, it's just a train station with a mall where you can find some of the usual franchises, from clothing to fast food. Of course very... More

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.
