  • Once in Leipzig, if you have time, take a visit to this spectacular and huge Railway Station. The architecture proposal is awesome, and you will see a train museum at the end of the station. Fantastic...  more »
  • The station is compared to many stations that I drove with the train, is very clean and clear. There are many ways to relax and sit in the warm. Good with tram and S-Bahn to reach.

  • Leipzig Hauptbahnhof, as a train station, is nothing special. The local „DB Lounge“ doesn’t offer a first class section, so what would you do there? Well shopping, Leipzig Hauptbahnhof Promenaden offer you a wealth of shopping opportunities. From fast food to a supermarket, from electronics to cloth. If you are bored, you‘ll be able to spend your time in a nice environment. While shops in Germany are closed on a Sunday, this shopping center enjoys the fact that it is part of the train station and thus is allowed to open.
  • Seriously, come on, who doesn't absolutely love this train station! Hands down the best in Europe of all the ones I've seen. Luckily it's one I happen to use a lot and normally train stations are nothing to write home about, but this one's special, so I certainly don't mind being there if I have to. There's lots of train stations with a variety of shops around Europe, but the layout of this one is particularly good as it is more like a shopping centre, sans the generic anonymity. And great places to eat as well. I just wish they had better bathrooms.
  • The train station in Leipzig is the best in the world. No other words would describe it better. And on Christmas it gets even better than that. After the zoo, it's the thing you REALLY need to see when in Leipzig.
  • Not all Hauptbahnhof in Germany are like this one. This has plenty of stores to go shopping and eating. The place has also a good architecture which makes it a really nice Train station. In the place was also free Wi-Fi, which in some parts I Germany is not that really common. It would be better if there are more available seating in the aisles, to rest a bit more. It is a nice place to visit in Leipzig even if not traveling by train.
  • Leipzig Hauptbahnhof / Mainstation is the best mainstation which i have seen. Starting with the restaurants, one has 33 Different choices and for vegetarians, one can always find something great there. There are 2 supermarkets along with other clothing shops, Perfumerie and also a Wiengut ( Place specialising just for wine ). One of the cleanest mainstations. It can be considered the Crown of Leipzig city
