[fanfare]...[/fanfare] Wien Hauptbahnhof has opened its doors for visitors

To be precise, the station hall and shopping centre have opened their doors. First IC, EC, ICE and RJs are going to stop at the station this Dec with the new rail schedule. One year later, when track works, east of the station, will be finished, the regular operation is planned to commence.

The station was opened with a 1 hour main act from Milow (on a stage outside on the new northern station square). Not bad.

More pictures, this time without the the special opening gadgets. Its making an everday impression already, even though the rail service is still very limited (which is going to change this December)

Credits go to our dear Austrian user nachalnik for this great photo report. Click on the quotation link to see even more of his pictures. This little walk starts in the underground local transit hub, climbing the stairs to the main hall, having a look into the main passage and then finishing of at the northern station square.

Let's sum it up again. From Südbahnhof to Hauptbahnhof, 5 years in 3 min:

You can already see Railjets passing through (and there should be pictures of that also in this thread) but no long distance trains are stopping at the station until this December (only local trains, including those to Bratislava are using the station already).

So, another 2 months to wait ...

Very generic with odd splashes of creativity. I wish we had more creativity in rail architecture.
