Overview

Frankfurt's main train station was opened in 1888 after five hard years of construction work. It is still one of the largest train stations in Europe with 25 platforms and over 1,500 trains departing every day. The monumental natural stone facade features an ornamental clock and is crowned by a sculpture of Atlas bearing the earth on his shoulders. The building is split up into three halls, all of which have been recently renovated. The station now boasts dozens of shops, food outlets and a stylish waiting room.
