Travel information train
You can reach Leipzig by railway. The main railway station is located in the city center of Leipzig. The new railway station is a facinating attractive area with a big shopping mall.
The Hauptbahnhof (Main Station) of Leipzig is not only interesting due to its monumental dimensions, but also due to a number of smaller technological advances that were made during its construction. These advances were crucial in setting the stage for the later development of reinforced concrete structural design. The vault of the entrance hall spanned 34 m, had a projected total length of 273 m and a height of 29 m. Its axis was perpendicular to the 26 railroad tracks and 203 m long platforms.
