more than just a railway station !

This is a huge place over two floors. Easy to find your way around and access to the subway also. Lots of places to eat and there is a huge shopping complex attached.

This station is easy to use not only for travel, but also getting information on the city and for shopping! There are also numerous food options; sort of a food court concept as the station doubles as a shopping mall. You will have pay €1 ton utilize the toilet, which is a bit out of the way at one of...

nice clean big airy shopping area, trains are from top level and shopping can be done on the two levels below, great selection of shops from bookshops to dougnut king. Morning opening hours are later than in the city, parking at side is cheapish.

Nice station - huge, well-kept, with good shopping facilities. Good onward transport connections by train and bus. Beware that live display boards are only present on the first part of the platforms and the PA system can only be heard close to the terminal building. If you wait at the far end of a platform for a train to arrive... More

A really pleasant and impressively huge station for little Leipzig. Think this may have to do with the Saxon "biggest & best" mentality. There is a lot to do and see in the station, it is clean and easy to navigate to your train.

...history, architecture, food and shopping in one enormous, splendid building. I think it's in fact the world's largest terminus station. Wander and gaze in awe at the gigantic arches. Look up to the ceiling, especially in some of the shops & cafes and wander the multi-level shopping area...definitely worth the time to look around.

This is a station it is possible to get lost in - and also a station where it would be possible to spend a day exploring the shopping arcades
