  Central Station
by MichaelFalk1969

Zürich Central Station is the largest railway station in Switzerland and a major traffic hub for international and local trains and city travel (tram). The first central station building was built in 1847, replaced in 1871 by the railway station in neo-renaissance style as we know it now.

In the interior and extensive underground sections of the railway station, many shops compete for customers. In the winter, a Christmas Market can be found in the main hall. At the start of Bahnhofstrasse, a monument to the Swiss railway pioneer Alfred Eschers is located.
