    Leipzig Central Station is the hub of Leipzig's transport network and, due to its architecture and shopping opportunities, is very popular with both tourists and the people of Leipzig themselves.
    The station area covers around 80,000 square meters, giving Leipzig the title of "Europe's largest terminus". With around 1,300 trains and 120,000 travelers and visitors every day, it is very busy.
    Since 2013, the Leipzig city tunnel, which integrates Leipzig into the network of the new S-Bahn Central Germany and further strengthens local and long-distance traffic, has also contributed to the heavy use of the station.

    The largest head station in Germany is a real showpiece after its renovation. Also for non-railway fans.

    The laying of the foundation stone of the main station began in 1909. Three predecessor stations (Thuringian, Magdeburg and Dresden station) had to give way. The construction was difficult because of the muddy ground. He stands on reinforced concrete posts. The Parthe was relocated during the construction. The first train traffic started in 1912.

    The promenades in Leipzig Central Station were opened in 1997. For their construction, the floor of the cross-platform was opened and two underground shopping plateaus built, which are connected by a tunnel under the inner city ring with the city center.

    Track 1 + 2 are in the tunnel. Since I had almost speculated with the time when I passed 7 minutes before the departure relaxed at track 8 and actually could see track 2 (at least that's what I thought) - but then it's only deep down (stairs, escalator, elevator).
    So plan for track 1 + 2 extra time.

    Traffic anchor, tourist magnet, permanent shopping mall: Leipzig Central Station has many important functions. For more than a century he has shaped the cityscape like no other building. Opened in 1915, Europe's largest terminal station in 2015 celebrated its 100th anniversary this year.
