Went to this restaurant as it was one of the few food outlets open at 6:30am. Rudest service in any McDonalds in any place ever. Horrible attitude from the service team. Did not put a cover on hot tea and when it spilled and scalded my hand, refused to give any ice (they did not have it, according to them - as if any McDonald does not have iced drinks). Strongly recommend avoiding this venue if at all possible.

This place is huge and a bit easy to get confused in, but there is a large food/restaurant selection . There are also left luggage lockers which are easy to use and not too expensive.

Large central station with all manner of transport available. Just follow signage, but be very aware of your belongings as pickpockets abound here. Lots of shops and station was very clean overall.

This must be one of Europes worst stations. On three huge floors there is one (1) ”WC center”. People queue to get in there and queue to get out through the same exit.
The signposting is extremely confusing, the S-bahn and european trains share tracks, with no clear distinction. If you stumble upon your track you see your destination, but unless you already know your track there is no help.
The help desk personnel know one or two sentences in English that they repeat, regardless of what question was asked.

There is no question that the construction of this central station is a masterpiece, but only if one is well-acquainted with the timing and tracks for the respective trains. No matter what is announced via the public address system, that train will likely not arrive at that level or track, and then it becomes a mess trying to run and catch the correct train.....even the DB ticket office provides you with incorrect information. The "red caps" in Munchen are far more credible and reliable in providing assistance in traveling in and outside Germany.

Ticket machines on U5 platforms take credit card payWave, great station I was misled by older online information that suggests you need cash for the ticket machines. There is a manned ticket office upstairs but no need!

Apart from the layer of cigarette butts out the front, the station is a modern, clean and massive structure. It has many shops catering for food, drink and other needs. It can take a while to understand the layout. There are lifts and escalators in most areas. Information boards are everywhere. One of the best central stations we have seen in Europe. A stark contrast to Hamburg.

Helpful staff at early hours. Made airport access simple and inexpensive. Clear track markings for the foreign traveler.

What an amazing piece of architecture. It is so good it is worth visiting to just to see it, even if you don't need to catch a train. I can honestly say this is the best modern station I have ever seen. Sorry Kings Cross and St Pancras, but this is even better than your renovations, which were awesome.

A beautiful extremely modern train station that combines metro, buses, and trains and offers a huge amount of stores including drug stores and clothing boutiques.
