  • 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.

  • Nice shops and Restaurants .. perfect way to while away your time while waiting for your ride!
  • Large, well structured, recently renovated railway station and a mall in one. Good shopping opportunities - food, clothes, shoes and may other things. Shows are open on Sundays, which is a really nice thing considering that all shops are closed in the city at that time.
  • One of the largest railway stations in Europe has its own en-suite shopping mall with supermarkets and everything.
  • Awesome train station full of history. Also the mall inside is quite good as well. Very friendly DB staff.
  • I always come here for convenient food. It's also open on Sundays.
