Completely renovated after reunification now incorporating large underground shopping centre.. Apparently one of the largest, if not the largest Railway Station in Gernany. Built in the style of a Grand Central Station New York. Good facilities and easy to book and find trains.

Promenaden shopping mall at Leipzig Central Station is a gate to the downtown area: Its sophisticated and fascinating architecture in the middle of the railway station invites passersby to shop and stroll.

Large train station. Simple layout so you cant get too lost. Faces the city center. Lots of team lines connect here. S Bahn connects underneath for intra city transit. Quick meals of all sorts are inside. Make sure to read train and tram schedule carefully!

Even if you are not going by train do visit this monumental rail station. It is reputedly the world’s largest. Do read up on its history. Great shopping on the lower level.

We were amazed at the structure, beauty, function, efficiency, and comprehensiveness of this train station. The food available is wide in choices, the cleanliness is helpful and the assistance in all respects for travel is very helpful. What a magnificent structure for public transportation.

It was our experience that most shops are open by 9 am and are open past 8 pm each day. Not sure times on Sunday. Hope this helps.
