The only station I know where there are trains on 3 different levels (not counting subways or tramways). Are there others ? Japan may be ?

Amsterdam Sloterdijk Railway station? And, although you can dispute the line between railway/subway. Some RER stations in Paris.

Is Berlin Hauptbahnhoff not on 3 levels as well?

Berlin Hauptbahnhof has two levels: east/west and S-Bahn on +2, and north/south on -2. The floors inbetween are for shops and services (such as ticket vending).

U55 platform is on a lower level.

Yes. But I asked, 3 levels, counting only heavy rail, not subways or tramways.
If you count those, Antwerp has 5 levels (tramways in surface and underground).

In station Diamant (which is the "pre-metro" station next to Antwerpen-Centraal) the tracks are even stacked on top of each other, so you could count 3 levels of trams. But now we're just being silly.

What is special about Antwerp is that the 3 different levels are directly on top of each other and that they are in the same direction.

For Tokyo Station I can identify 4 different levels, but the platforms of one of the tunnel are located right underneath the station square. The other tunnel level is located a couple hundred meters south of the part of the station that is above ground.

Shibuya Station is also 4 levels, but also not directly on top of each other. And 2 levels are actually the points where heavy rail lines "officially" continue as a metro line.

For me Belgium has the nicest classic (Antwerp) and modern (Liége) stations of the Benelux countries.

I think it has to do with making operations cheaper by not requiring them to have extensive ventilation system (fire safety)

I'm from a Benelux country and I think I have to agree.

I think Rotterdam Centraal is the best-looking Dutch station (when they finish the final touches) and Liege is the most beautiful Belgian station indeed.

I really don't get why people like Antwerpen Centraal. It is an ok-station from aesthetic viewpoint, though the infrastructure placement is interesting.
