  • How a modern Train station, a historic structure joints to see that must-see. History of architecture courses in together of old and new that teach as an example.

  • The station is well worth a visit. To warm up, eating, strolling, shopping, amazement, or for a toilet paper. Sometimes something very full, so not good, if you're in a hurry. Perfect transport connections, inside and out.

  • A main station that is very well structured and so very clear. You see directly where you need to be and everywhere you do have a plan, also from the immediate vicinity. For the door a comprehensive bus and tram station. Inside an extensive shopping centre in dire floors. But also this is very structured so you can find your way quickly and should have no fear of missing your train if you still want to shop around. Interior is simple-no entertainment venues.

  • Relatively large selection of stores, but the atmosphere is missing and the beauty of the station has been lost. Would benefit from getting a more upscale touch.
  • Unbelievably big. The station itself has to be seen to be believed. Plenty of shopping opportunities during a stop.
  • Amazing place. Does not seem like a train station at all. Just a grand place to see.
  • Huge station, with many convenient stores, but some fast food place closes pretty early, around 9ish, not so convenient for late night arrivals.
  • Viele Geschäfte und freies WLAN. Einige Läden auch Sonntags offen. Zahlreiche Cafes und Restaurants sowie Imbissangebote. Leider keine kostenlosen Toiletten.
