The building itself has five levels, but railway and U-Bahn tracks are located only at levels +2 and -2.

Tram tracks are being built at level 0, but they're on the road outside the building and run parallel to the upper level train tracks, so I wouldn't consider it a 3-level-stack.

The games are way more interesting in the junction just north of the Hbf: here and here you'll have proper 3 level stacks, when the S-Bahn tracks going south will be built. You can already see the path.

Speaking about Berlin... at Westkreuz the railway runs on actual three levels:
https://maps.google.it/maps?hl=it&ll...09645&t=k&z=17

If you move to the left of the picture, you'll see how the lines cross each other.



This one's in Hagen (D), 3 rail leves and a pretty rail-over-rail-over-river bridge:
https://maps.google.ch/maps?q=Hagen,...+Germania&z=18

And this is Dortmund:
https://maps.google.ch/maps?q=Dortmu...+Germania&z=16
Not a perfect 3-stack, but still an amazingly complicated piece of rail... it took me some time to understand all those flyovers.

Germany is heaven for 3D rail paths, they really fascinate me


EDIT: more and more examples coming to my mind...

Berlin "Nordkreuz":
https://maps.google.it/maps?hl=it&ll...04823&t=k&z=18
This is a perfect 3-level stack, with the S-Bahn track Bornholmer Str. -> Schönhauser Allee running underground (you can see it emerging on the right).

Berlin Biesdorfer Kreuz

Yes, of course, some more in the Köln area:

The elegant Porz-Wahn junction to Köln airport
https://maps.google.it/maps?hl=it&ll...09645&t=k&z=17

This spectacular perfect 3-level, just west of Hbf on the line towards Aachen - Belgium
https://maps.google.it/maps?q=K%C3%B...+Germania&z=18
Lower level freight, then passenger mainline, then S-Bahn.

And if you follow the line to the right, you'll see the line to Bonn crossing two different levels of the Aachen tracks.


Enough for tonight

In Paris under the Place de l'Opéra you have 3 metro lines that cross each other. The lower level is 16m under ground.
