While many of the main stations in European cities are large, this one seems to go on forever. It is easy to navigate your way around even if you don't speak/read German as we don't. Take your time and keep an eye on your belongings...More

Plenty of things nearby to fill your suitcase. Beautiful old train station. Lots of trackside temptations including fresh pretzels and gaffe.

We've passed the station just to take the tram. The walk there was nice, but it's not a place you absolutely have to visite.

Must see station. This is by far the most beautiful and most clean station I have ever seen. If all train stations would be like this it would be a great joy to travel by train.

I rememember the Hauptbahnhof from the early 90's. First Pizza Hut, first KFC.... it's SO modern now, unbelievable. The Starbucks looks like Goethe would have had his coffee there already. Lots of different stores, too. Definitely worth a stop.

Well, it’s a main station with lots of trains and lots of shops... From the outside it looks quite nice. On the inside there are huge halls, but of course you’ll find all the mc’do and starbucks in there....

Massive piece of architecture reputedly largest in world as stations go. Was worth a wonder across the road from our hotel. Extensively damaged in ww2 and some great pics online of that period to compare then and now.

It was our experience that most shops are open by 9 am and are open past 8 pm each day. Not sure times on Sunday. Hope this helps.
