  • Initially it doesn't seem to be an attraction, but as soon as you arrive at it the impression changes - one of the largest in Europe, really well cared, lots of shopping choices and well signed! Right...  more »
  • Interesting building with good shopping facilities. Just outside the city centre, with easy access to urban transport.

  • I really like the station. He is beautifully renovated, the classic architecture has been preserved, but there are several modern levels with shops. It works for a station pretty clean and I felt safe.

  • 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.
