Okay, we are inside now. Let's turn around and take a look at those doors that you just entered through..... amazing aren't they! It is like walking into a different world....

I love the way the light filters through the doors and the half round window above it. All those little details and attention that has been paid to the design are just wonderful to look at. The station is from 1896 and was designed by L. Gosschalk. He was inspired by Dutch-Flemish Gothic and Renaissance style. In the interior you can also see lots of Jugendstil. The station is full of ornaments and details and the main material that has been used to build this station is redbrick and Oberküchner stone.

This hallway, in which we stand now, is 20 by 20 meters and 14 meters high. It is amazingly beautiful. Let me show you a bit more of this hallway in the next few tips......
