An excellent station that is just as much about the shopping as it is about the transport. There is a seamless integration of shops, ticket booths and trains. We have been to the Hauptbahnhof numerous times even just to shop and the bonus is the shopping is open on Sundays, uncommon in Germany.

Used train from airport to Central Leipzig. Much cheaper than taxi and simple to navigate. There is an information desk as you come out of airport to ask questions 're onward travel.

Not only is this a railway station, but it is also an architectural attraction in its own right and a huge shopping mall.

Once your in you have this wow effect. Lots of shops over 2 floors and the trains on the top floor. I love this station because it's all on one level well signed and very clean. So easy to find your train. Staff very friendly

This is by far the best train station I have ever been to. It had a huge shopping centre within the grounds with plenty of cafes, restaurants, everything you could need on a day out.

Visited during the christmas season, so everything was nicely decorated. There are a lot of shops and a supermarket in the station, so even if you don't have to take a train you might find it useful to visit there. Our train was a bit late, which was a disappointment.

The Service at the Train Station was excellent. The attendants spoke English and were very helpful. The train station did provide a few grocery shops for getting water and other essentials, as well as, hosting quite a few food stores where you can get anything from McDonalds to full meals at a very reasonable price
