The interior looks very nice and refreshing. The station signs are somewhat similar to the Dutch train station signs!

In case anyone is interested, this map shows how the whole neighbourhood
is going to look like at the end of that decade (everything encircled with pinkish lines is either U/C or not even started yet) and if you look at it in detail,
you'll see the parts of the station and the streets that opened today:

Very nice
Espcially if you consider the situation just 3 years ago, when the old Südbahnhof was still in use...! What a change....

Beautiful station but I see that it has only 12 tracks. To be the main station of great capital like Vienna it seems quite small especially if it's compared with others stations. Milano Centrale (Milan main station), for example, has 22 tracks and Munich Hauptbahnhof has even 37 tracks! I want to point that both these cities are smaller than Vienna but with bigger stations.

Both, Munich and Milano, are railheads whereas Vienna will be a railthrough station and should be able to handle more traffic with less tracks.

Furthermore, Munich handles 450.000 passengers at the moment, Vienna-Meidling and Vienna-Westbahnhof *together* handle about 115.000 passengers currently, Vienna main station is expected to have about 125.000 passengers.

As already mentioned: Terminal =/= through station capacity wise.

Further not all the trains from Westbahnhof will be transfered to the new Main Station.

I am sure though the numbers of Munich include U-Bahn passangers, othwise it is just completely unrealistic.

Yep, for sure. You can add about 200.000 metro users to the 60.000 railway users for Westbahnhof.

must say job of builder or planner is really not as easy as it sound...construction of city or station.. they actually take care of each corner of the land and with their strategic mind they utilize these places.. awesome job..........

Looks good, but I wish it wasnt angular but curvy instead.

Curvy would have been orders of magnitude more expensive, at east if built in the solid way and not with fabrics or foils of some sort. To be honest I prefer t rectangular however as it really creates the impression of a big crystal hovering above your head.

Milan is way bigger than Vienna. It's urban area is around 5 million. Munich's urban area has the same population than Vienna's urban area - around 2 million.
