Very large central train station.

Easy to get to-from. Lots of restaurants. At first it was hard to find elevators. A somewhat long walk depending on where you disembark from train. Interest art inside and outside.

You can always be assured of a good Currywurst in the HBF. Was also the only place that had shops open on Easter Sunday. It is a very impressive building in its own right

A good place if you know where you are going. A place full of people who are travelling, but you can find your way at the information desk which is easy to locate.

Amazing glass construction on 4 levels. Well worth a visit open 7 days a week. Buy city travel pass €30.00 for 7 days travel on trains, trams, metro and buses.

We arrived by train in Berlin, coming from Holland, and the Hauptbahnhof was the very first place we visited. Very bright, LARGE, and easy to find our way. There are plenty of services and the pubic transport options in Berlin are very good too, many of them coming together here in the main train station. The only minor negative point... More

The station is huge with more than one level, a lot of shops, more than one category of train and more than one category of ticket machine. The travel information staff are very helpful. On a first visit I would not have liked to be in a hurry to catch a particular train but the same applies to say Kings... More

This railway station really is an example of what they should be like - great architecture and massive inside. Clear signage and really quite impressive.

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
