Very interesting. I was in Dresden in 1995 and took a day trip there from Berlin. I didn't seem to remember the Bahnhof being that distinct at the time.

I wish I could like this refurbishment but I don't! I hope the square in front of the station will be redisgned, seems like an eyesore at this moment.

The interior looks good but the blandness of the exterior is something I would expect, say, Calatrava to have prevented.

GERMANY | Railways

The Stuttgart Main Staion will be redeveloped.

Its planned to replace the existing 150 years old station by a new underground through-station, including a 100 km long high speed line connecting Stuttgart with Ulm and the Stuttgart airport

Investments will be 5 billion€

the station will be "turned" 90° and enter and leave the city in a long tunnel

I can´t believe it. They will built it.
They discussing this project since nearly 10 years.
Do you know if they built now also the high-speed track to Ulm and the station at Stuttgart-Airport?

yes, they will
the new high speed line with a stop at stuttgart airport/trade fair was also part of the summit, that lead to the go-ahead for both projects.

Stuttgart 21 will cost 2.8 billion, the new HSL to Ulm wil cost 2.2 billion.
That makes the 5 billion all together.

Saw it on Monitor just 2 days ago, shame though Bahn cuts so many services now that it is going to the stock exchange. No more trains to Hof

Questions:

Why is the Mercedes Benz logo on top of the tower that's part of the existing station?

What will happen to the station and associated track once the new one is opened?

It's probably just there as an advertisement. I bet it spins around too.

Some of the picture look a bit blurry and coarse but interesting photo report. I personally do not like the DB because they are always late and expensive. Only the main ICE routes are reasonably fine.

Sorry for the bad quality, it's a pretty cheap cam.
