The station is beautiful and immaculate. I loved how the place being crowded is still a treat to be in and experience. There are cafes around as well various other shops so not only can you visit the place for commuting but can also do with a bit of window shopping and strolling. The station is right in the center...

No doubt in saying it's worth it visiting the place! The station is integrated to the tram, so no need to hustle around at the streets looking for it.

Absolutely great experience! Had to leave my luggages for 3 hours and found the lockers perfectly clean, working and available. The bus/train connection worked perfectly and the station is right in the centre! TRIPLE A!

It is quite easy to actually miss out on the beauty of this station if you don't take your time to enjoy it. It has very fascinating features and an even more fascinating history. The place is amazing, more so that it is such a public place that is taken for granted really. One must take time to explore this... More

An absolutely stunning building, absolutely deserving of it's title as one of the world's most beautiful stations. The diamond shops are worth seeing as well, and plenty of cafes are available, along with an impressive newsagent stocking papers in at least 5 different languages. Very helpful tourist information and a lovely waffle stall as well

This is a stunning building. Built between 1895 and 1905 it has been wonderfully preserved and is still in use as a railway station. As you enter the station the intricate work of the building is apparent, pause and admire the beautiful columns, arches and stone work. There are three levels of tracks that can be seen as soon as...

A lovely old building, bit like Central Station in New York. It is located at the top end of the Diamond District. Worth a visit.
