If you are a railroad buff or just like to shop, this station is for you. The largest station in the world by area, it provides three levels of shops as well as serving as a fully functional train station.

It is like great shopping mall you cans find supermarkets, fast food restaurants souvenir shops and others, it is the place where you can shop At late hours than other shops in city. It worths to separate few hours when you are in Leipzig.

It was our experience that most shops are open by 9 am and are open past 8 pm each day. Not sure times on Sunday. Hope this helps.
