I really wish the US could establish the same sort of rail system found in Europe. Wonderfully efficient and quite comfortable. Leipzig's central station is a sight to behold and quite a pleasant traveling experience.

One of the largest train stations we have ever seen. Spotlessly clean and well organized throughout. Travelers can easily transit the station between various train lines effortlessly. While waiting visitors and travelers can browse the multiple shopping levels within the facility. Amazing and worth the time to visit even if you're not traveling. Must see.

An excellent station that is just as much about the shopping as it is about the transport. There is a seamless integration of shops, ticket booths and trains. We have been to the Hauptbahnhof numerous times even just to shop and the bonus is the shopping is open on Sundays, uncommon in Germany.

Used train from airport to Central Leipzig. Much cheaper than taxi and simple to navigate. There is an information desk as you come out of airport to ask questions 're onward travel.
