“Stunning”

Hauptbahnhof Leipzig
Ranked #9 of 177 things to do in Leipzig
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Whether you do any shopping or not, if you arrive or leave by train don't fail to pause to admire Leipzig's absolutely stunning Grand Central Station, especially the vast, high transept (for want of a better word), the foyer, and the facade. The people on the information desk in the middle of the transept, to the right of the top of the grand staircase, are exceptionally helpful. If the weather's fine, have a look at the gardens too.

Leipzig train station is probably the most impressive one I've ever seen. It is very modern and in winter there is a Christmas market inside selling beautiful things.

We were surprised because today, Nov 30th, santa claus arrived in deutschebahn train (there was a band inside the station). There is a great weihnachtsmarkt inside the station and also good stores!! Take some time to enjoy if you like these kind of programs.

Lots of shops in this which was once the biggest transit train station in Europe. There are plenty of places to get a bite to eat, two supermarkets, a post office and a huge electronics store, not to mention the multiple clothes stores, there are chocolate shops, souvenir shops, backers, cafe, ice cream parlours, phone shops, a carousel for kids at Christmas and a Santa, lots of little extras like exhibitions, places to sit and muse, a large newsagent next to the platforms where one can browse to one's content. If you want to push your child around in a trolley shaped like a car have your passport at hand as it can be used to hire for free a trolley and give your offspring a spin which they no doubt will enjoy. It is also a very convenient place for onward travel with practically all trams passing outside.

A huge and old building with distintive architeture, it is a landmark close to the historic downtown. Leipzig is such a beautiful city and its railway station add a special flavour to it.
