Antwerpen-Centraal is just breathtaking.

Now that is how to modernise a traditional building.

Leipzig, Europe's largest railway station! Size does matter after all.

Leipzig station looks stunning and I like how they incorporated a shopping centre on lower levels.

The central station of Hamburg: Hamburg Hauptbahnhof. Built 1906. According to Deutsche Bahn with 450.000 passengers and guests the busiest train station in that regard in Germany (but Frankfurt has slighty more train movements)

Postcard from 1906


Northwestern part of the station

I think the Helsinki Central Station is quite unique despite a similar built form typology, designed by the great Eliel Saarinen:

It's huge. It must be more than just a train station.

It's a hotel as well.

Only just re-opened as a hotel after restoration actually.

The densest railway system in the world belongs to Belgium. Belgium's oldest main line is that between Brussels and Malines, opened on May 5, 1835. This resulted in many architectural masterpieces, some examples:

@ Karnoit I agree and it looks much better now without the parking spaces before it ! compare those two photos ! Cars are so ugly !! But especially the area left of the station is not so nice, huge wasteland right side is at least still practical with the bus station.
i think the whole area there is actually quite nicely lit up when night falls though / the quai..

also to the right side from the station the panorama is actually quite nice when the sun goes down!! industrial but i liked it! reminded me of home (ruhr area)

That's a really bad renovation.

1st, when trees will be adults the train station will be invisible.

2nd, lighting's very bad quality. Those poles look very cheap and have no aesthetic value at all and don't have any relation with the station.
