The Anonymous Widower

Berlin Hauptbahnhof

Berlin Hauptbahnhof is a spectacular station built in the last few years.

As the pictures show, it is a multi-level station.

  • The upper-level is covered by a large train-shed and has several through platforms, including those for the S-Bahn.
  • In the basement there are another set of platforms.
  • As many as three separate escalators to get to the long-distance trains in the bottom level.

The station has sixteen platforms, which makes it just one platform bigger than London Bridge station.

Numbers of passengers per day will probably be similar, when London Bridge is finished, with Thameslink and the Southeastern Metro at full capacity.

On the other hand, London Bridge has two very high capacity Underground Lines, whereas Berlin Hauptbahnhof has only one of a lower capacity.

Gluten-Free Food

The one thing, where London Bridge station is better, is that it has a Leon, with a good selection of gluten-free food.

As with most German stations, there is little gluten-free food except for McFonalds fries in Berlin Hauptbahnhof.
