Hauptbahnhof (Berlin)

Berlin Hauptbahnhof, formerly Lehrter Bahnhof, is Berlin's main railway station. It is a gigantic five storied glass and steel framed building that was opened in 2006. Cost of construction: €700 million, took ten years to be completed. The Berlin Bahnhof has 1100 trains carrying around 30,000 passengers per day.

Here are some pictures of the new station from the BBC website .

Well for 24 hours at least it will probably be the only building in Berlin that isn't covered in graffiti.

Man stabs 26 after opening of Berlin train station. More details: Germany station stabbings - Yahoo! News. I *heard* that one of the stabbing victims is allegedly HIV positive, thus causing exposure concerns for the other victims. Haven't seen it in writing though. Update: HIV exposure confirmed
