A train station as beautiful as a fairytale castle.The island railway station in Uelzen, designed by the famous master builder Hubert Stier, was put into operation in 1887. A century later, the listed Wilhelminian building had come down heavily and completely lost its old splendor.In the course of the world exhibition EXPO 2000, the specially founded association "Bahnhof 2000 Uelzen e.V." developed a concept that also provided for the transformation of the station into an environmental and cultural railway station. For the artistic redesign, the Austrian painter and architecture doctor Friedensreich Hundertwasser was won. According to his specifications, the building was rebuilt from 1998 to 2000.Today, the Hundertwasser station is one of the ten most beautiful stations in the world. Every year, thousands of people from all over the world visit the colorful train station and enjoy golden balls, colorful mosaics, many colorful columns and dancing windows.On the river bed floor, they experience tunes for the feet, marvel at the folds of the walls, get to know tree tenants and discover Hundertwasser's fantastic world.
