  • Station is a must in Leipzig, the best ice in the UG, world class, is not only what kind of passing, here you can visit even short, to look at the exhibition, or to work on just the ambience... really really nice.

  • Impressive architecture, which offers far more than just a train station. Many opportunities for shopping and dining and direct access to the city centre of Leipzig.

  • Imposing building which invites with its sales galleries to linger. Clearly laid out and easy to find. Fungtionalles building on old trimmed.

  • 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.
