"Berlin Central Station is Europe's largest and most modern intersection station and has long been more than just a train station: an architectural showpiece, a shopping center and a meeting place.
Berlin Central Station is the largest and most modern intersection station in Europe. It was inaugurated on 28 May 2006 after about eleven years of construction, where once the Lehrter station was, which was destroyed during the Second World War and demolished in the 1950s. The new Berlin Central Station was designed by the architect Meinhard von Gerkan from the Hamburg architecture firm Gerkan, Marg and Partner.
After years of discussions about the location of the main train station and the implementation of the architects' plans by the Deutsche Bahn, visitors and Berlin have long since received a positive response from the main station: as a transit station, as a shopping center or as a meeting place. The distinctive building with its domed roof construction and the two 46-meter high office buildings, which can be seen from afar, became a popular photo opportunity. Almost forgotten is the dispute between the architect and the Deutsche Bahn, because the glass roof was shortened by 130 meters, to ensure that the main station was completed in time for the Football World Cup 2006.
