    I love Vapiano. But this place is totally overwhelmed with the amount of visitors. Hope you have time! Maybe not such a good idea if you are in between trains ...

    Changing from the lower platforms to the upper ones can take quite a lot of time. Careful selection of the correct elevator may help.
