Hauptbahnhof - Central Station

Opened in 1839 and rebuilt several times over the years, today over 300,000 passengers use this main railway station on a daily basis to travel throughout Europe.
While in town, this was my regular hangout. Being that the food there was inexpensive and it was the only public place where I could find free wi-fi. Plus, I have always been intrigued with the excitement of people traveling to and fro.

With 32 tracks, trains here arrived and departed regularly.

Kiosks like this one sold food at reasonable prices.

I think you found three great reasons to frequent the train station, then you took three great photos to share with us. Thanks!

When I was in Germany one of the things I loved was the trains always were on time.
