2 German cities stop before we disembarked at this beautiful central station, big and lots of stores in it ... looks like a big shopping mall, even big in area but easy to find buses and taxi stands, this place still in construction, 2 or 3 years more will definitely Berlin's standout.

“Sense of space is there”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We were travelling with the eurorail global pass. Checked in the Meninger Hotel next to d station. Value for money. Full of young crowd mostly. Or maybe it was a Sunday - that's why.
It was raining but we managed to visit the Reichstag, Bundestag the Platz etc. and the museums but from outside as we didn't have time. All are within walking distance. The station itself is so big. Need at least a full day to see a city. But we had to leave early next morning. But the feel of the place is friendly!!

interesting and impressive building, fortunately with shops working even on Sunday, so if you forget some staff for your beloved back home, you may go and find it there.

“Well organized and helpful station”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We visited the station on our arrival from Amsterdam using train. Although this was our first visit to Berlin, we have found that the station is very tourist friendly... clean, safe and signs are available and clear. It has a great visitor center/customer service that will give a very clear print out on the train route, platform and time if you wish to use the train within Berlin. We think it is one of the best train stations we have ever visited.

“Surprisingly interesting”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you arrive or depart from Berlin by train you may choose to spend some time at this train station. Its design is impressive and the place is lively with countless shops and restaurants. The facilities are well organised: toilets, storage lockers etc. so it's also useful for tourists. Quite a surprise.
