Visited during the christmas season, so everything was nicely decorated. There are a lot of shops and a supermarket in the station, so even if you don't have to take a train you might find it useful to visit there. Our train was a bit late, which was a disappointment.

Great shopping area in the centre of the station with many household retail names along with good places to eat and drink.

The Service at the Train Station was excellent. The attendants spoke English and were very helpful. The train station did provide a few grocery shops for getting water and other essentials, as well as, hosting quite a few food stores where you can get anything from McDonalds to full meals at a very reasonable price

We stayed at the Royal International Hotel just over the road from the station so that we could get to the airport easily the next day. The building is very impressive withe an excellent selection of shops and eateries but finding your way around is almost impossible. Luckily we decided to go and buy our train tickets for the airport... More

Before our recent trip, we had spent 20 minutes in Leipzig station changing trains. This time we spent over two hours there when we had no intention of travelling. The stunning architecture, 130+ shops on two levels, a display of old rolling stock on platform 24 and a fascinating exhibition on the upgrading of the Berlin - Munich line (at... More

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 at Leipzig Zentrum, so you are minutes away from an impressive collection of European beauty!

Strange to give a 5 point rating for a train station. But this one is special. One of the biggest in Germany with a spacious, impressive architecture. You will find everything you need (supermarket, restaurants) inside, open even on sundays.

It's huge! There are three levels so shops and cafes galore! If you're into gadgets and games then the Saturn store is a must. Next door to that there's a pet store, so definitely something for everyone. The station itself is light and airy, and pretty much every bus and tram stops there. The information screens are good and the... More

What an amazing building, really more like a shopping mall than a railway station. Would recommend a visit. This was a family visit with no young children or teens, why is there no box for just family ???????

When you come to Leipzig with the train, you will be impressed. It is big, clean and modern even though the buildind is an old one. It is attached to a shopping promenade.

Thank Aity M
