  • Leipzig Central station is one of the most beautiful stations that I know personally. Also enough money was invested ;) In shops there are outgoing. everything. Nothing occurred to us what had been lacking in the station. Both normal shops as well as restaurants, ice cream parlours, snack bars, etc. It's all there. Only the clientele outside the station to cloud the impression... Otherwise, the station is really super. Architecturally, the station imposing is a Wucht...sehr anyway!

  • Very handsome, huge halls, very nice little cheap shopping knick-knacks renovated, and at least above the main floor. If you have time to enjoy the ambiance and lively and colourful Cafe nowadays for a few minutes will not regret this.
