  • 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.
