    God! I'm lost! This place is huge!! Why didn't I learn German??? Tip: Get here early if you're traveling to another country and get too excited about traveling. Seriously: this place is huge.

    Great architecture! Plenty of options for food, drinks, shopping and even supermarket.

    Luggage lockers are in -1 floor ... have to find big number 1-2 ... Lockers are before entrance to garages.

    Grab a coffee from Dunkin' Donuts before boarding your train, tram, or bus. Excellent service at the DB ticket office.

    Beautifully designed. I liked it

    Shops close from 10 at night till 7 in the morning, not what you'd expect from a station like this

    Beautiful station. Tend to get lost here though!

    Emma Wijninga · June 27, 2015

    One of the worst architectural disasters in modern German history. As far as international central railway stations go it's halfway decent.

    Marcel Aubron-Bülles · June 12, 2015

    Nice station, but if you need to change your PEDs, and you cannot access the DB lounge, your only choice is the Tourist Bureau. Thankfully they have a nice little rest area with a few outlets.

    They aren't friendly at the Z shop. Won't shop for SIM cards here again.

    Main station, remember to validate your ticket before getting on U or S or fine €40

    So big, I always get lost in there. But soooo convenient, you have everything there and a rossman and Kaiser 24/7 : perfect!

    This bahnhof is quiet impressive. I managed to get lost in there a few times and still don't everything that is inside. Apotheke and grocery store is 24/7 and that is wonderful.

    Huge and pretty train station with lots of stuff going on inside. The train station itself is quite an impressive sight. 😊

  • Andrea B.

    A very nice station,there's quite a good doner stand outside,a supermarker inside and so on,shitty wifi though. And its a bit difficult to find a good coffee for a good price. It has starbucks though

    Virgin store has a good selection of English books

    Pawel Mazurek · January 26, 2015
  • Pawel M.

    If you're waiting 1+ hour for next train try Vapiano

    Pawel Mazurek · January 26, 2015
  • Pawel M.

    Statbucks prices are really high at the train station, watch out!

    Pawel Mazurek · January 26, 2015
  • Christopher S.

    Dunkin' Donuts doesn't exist elsewhere in Europe, so why bother with Starbucks (unless you want free WiFi) when you can get a Boston Creme too? Beautiful train station, very clean, friendly info desk.

    Christopher Sikora · January 19, 2015
  • Francis K.

    Beautiful station, designed by Meinhard von Gerkan. Beware: transfers from regular trains to S-Bahn takes at least 6 minutes as you have to climb several floors.

    It is really gorgeous railway station!!! Like it!!!

    I'm always mixing up the side where I have to go for the buses. Europaplatz -> buses, tram Washingtonplatz -> no buses, no tram

    Arno Wolter · January 4, 2015

    So many levels! Strongly suggest finding out your platform with high priority. Can take a while to get from Platform 1 to Platform 10.

    If the German trains wouldn't be this expensive, I guess I would be here more often.

    After all these years still impressive how trains pass on top of oneself

    Francis · November 14, 2014

    Come for the trains, stay for the shops and the architecture. A mini-arcology in the making.

    Nuno Salvaterra · November 12, 2014
  • Kori A.

    Be careful with luggage deposit working hours. They do not work 24h/day, but close down relatively early in the evening! The most stressful point of my trip!

    Kori A · November 4, 2014
  • Phat B.

    Great Architecture - good place for U Bahn to S Bahn changeovers

    Phat Buoy · October 23, 2014

    Lots of good restaurant choices!

    Lance Talsky · October 13, 2014

    This place is a huge, crazy maze.

  • April C.

    The pharmacy here is open 24/7 and also on Sundays and holidays, most other shops like drugstores, supermarkets, fashion stores and restaurants in the station are open.
