    Leave all your bags for €7 per 24 hours whilst you visit the city. Look for the key and baggage symbol. Kluis/safe

    Beautiful architecture, free wifi and good information center. If you are a foreigner and want to charge your OVA card, you better have some coins with you.

    A beautiful building with a funky clock face that we think shows wind direction. Inside the station, it's like hell on Earth and people walk about with no regard for others. Good luck!

    You can eat fairly well here at Julia's or the ubiquitous döner places. Try out the piano in the main hallway.

    Convenient station considering it has access to all trains local, regional and inter country. You can take trams and buses from here as well

    What a great place to take a train or just watch the world go by. Free wifi, decent coffee and food for a train station. Excellent exterior for photography and thousands of bicycles parked outside!

    Go into 1klas cafe restaurant on platform 1 it's like a set from an Agatha Christie film. Only if all station cafe restaurants were like this.
