We flew into Leipzig airport and took train into town; a quick 14 min ride. Arrived underground in the new portion of the Hauptbahnhof - a great addition that makes for easier access to other part of the city. Quick and efficient access; great service and the added bonus of having a complete shopping center inside the Bahnhof.

It really is amazing to look at and in addition there are two floors underneath the main part of the station and these two floors make up the shopping centre with a vast array of shops and places to eat. There are a couple of supermarkets (Aldi... More

It is a really beautiful Hauptbahnhof - Main Station. Full of history and beauty. Is also a complete shopping center, with stores and a Rewe Supermarket that works even on Sundays - normally all the markets are closed on Sunday in Germany.

There are a lot of different cafés and shops in the Bahnhof. But if you are looking for a toilet, there is no toilet at Starbucks.There is one outside though but they will charge you 1€ for it. There is also a shower which I have never seen at a German train station before! (7€) Otherwise just a regular German... More

One of the most beautiful main station in Germany I guess. It is modern, clean and full of shops, bars and restaurants (I mean like Subway, Pizza Hut, McD, KFC and so on). Really nice to spend time before your travel.

This train station has a lot for the traveler to do while waiting between trains. It includes a multi level shopping mall with many stores and eateries, and even fun for kids. Children can rent stuffed horses which actually move along and the child bounces upon the saddle! Some big ones for big people, too!
