Bremen Hauptbahnhof has probably the most stylish railway station facade I have seen. And thankfully there's a large open square in front of it offering unobstructed view.
Railway between Bremen and Hannover was opened in 1847, and the current station was opened in 1889.

Marvelous view of this very ornate classical Bremen Hauptbahnhof, arches stacked, arched roof, statue façade, and dominate large statues on the towers.
I worked on stations in California, but nothing compares to this masterpiece.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Kari. Imposing and possibly intimidating facade where forms are accentuated through repetition and depth of its stacked arches. The light hitting the building has given it a lighter look. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Hello Kari - I agree with you; this is a stylish and lovely railway station. I like the symmetry and elegant curving features. Built in the days when to travel by rail was a rare and special event this building echoes the mood of the day.
Beautifully managed with very good detailing.

Nice capture of this railroad station of Bremen. Good side light and good layout.
I visited Brmen several times and stayed allways in a hotel just at the opposite site of this station.
TFS and best regards
