The train station is definitely huge and has a large variety of shops on several levels.However it is missing the feel of a place tourists want to shop.With the option of walking Leipzigs smart shopping streets and its lovely shopping passages the Railway Station is not on the top of the list for shoppers in reasonable weather.

One of the most important train stations in Saxony - very popular and it served as a backdrop for several films: Shining through, Mr. Nobody, Obsession... Very large interiors in the two entrance halls, and an impressive exteriors of the concourse. Also must see a holocaust memorial situated in the area, historical.

Even if you do not arrive to Leipzig by train, you should go visit. It is huge, has a grocery store on the lower level and many other stores and lots of places to eat. It has something like 26 platforms for trains.

It's no wonder that the Leipzig train station is a major tourist attraction. It's BIG spacious train station but it also has an extensive 2 level food and shopping plaza below the concourse. The variety and quality was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. Most German city stations are impressive and we'll served with food outlets but Leipzig impressed us more... More

We traveled into and out of Leipzig by train. The staff in the DB travel center were great when we needed to change a ticket reservation. We went back for breakfast just for the fun of it. I grew up going through cold stations, who thought of making them so welcoming>?

Loved our experience at this train station. Not only is it beautiful and well-designed, but it is also a hub of so many places to eat and shop. My friends and I found ourselves walking to this train station from our hotel very often as the lower level has a small, inexpensive grocery store with a pretty sizable selection of... More

This is one of the most successful revivals of a train station that I have ever seen. Some train stations are simply boring, non-descript waiting rooms for travelers; others are so huge that you can barely navigate them. This one in Leipzig contains a manageable mix of boutiques, drugstores, restaurants, cart vendors, and specialty stores. It's fun to visit.

The main train station of Leipzig. Wherever you are in the city, there's always public transport that comes here, and you can shop for pretty much anything while waiting for your train. The small kiosks serve great munchies if you need a snack - I'd recommend the kräpfchen, small dougnut-like cakes - for a reasonable/very cheap price. The whole place... More
