As well as being architecturally interesting, the Hauptbahnhof is noticeable for its size. It is very spacious and airy, clean, and is as much a shopping mall as railway station.

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.

The shops open at 10am, there are restaurants that open before that. The shops are open until fairly late in the evening including Saturday's. Sunday all shops are pretty much closed except for restaurants.
