Bike Touring Highlight
Dresden Hauptbahnhof (Dresden Hbf for short) is the largest passenger station in the Saxon state capital Dresden. In 1898 it replaced the Bohemian station of the former Saxon-Bohemian state railway and with its representative design was conceived as the central station of the city. The combination of island and terminal station on two different levels is unique. A special feature of the building are the halls covered with Teflon-coated fiberglass membranes. Since the extensive renovation of the station at the beginning of the 21st century, this translucent roof design has allowed more daylight to enter the station halls than in the past. The main station connects the Dresden-Neustadt – Děčín hl. n. and Dresden – Werdau (Sachsen-Franken-Magistrale) with each other, which enable traffic to the south-east in the direction of Prague, Vienna or further to south-east Europe, or to the south-west in the direction of Chemnitz to Nuremberg. The connections to the north (Berlin), north-west (Leipzig) and east (Görlitz) are not made from the main train station.
The station has 381 arrivals and departures as well as 60,000 travelers and visitors every day.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dresden_Hauptbahnhof
