Dortmund Central Station

Dortmund Central Station (Dortmund Hauptbahnhof) is the central station for the city of Dortmund in Germany. The station's origins lie in a joint station of the Köln-Mindener Eisenbahn and Bergisch-Märkische Eisenbahn which was built north of the city centre in 1847. That station was replaced by a new station, erected in 1910 at the current site. It featured raised embankments to allow a better flow of traffic. At the time of its opening, it was one of the largest stations in Germany. It was, however, destroyed in an Allied air raid on 6 October 1944.

The main station hall was rebuilt in the year 1952 in a contemporary style. Its stained glass windows feature then-common professions of Dortmund.

Dortmund Hauptbahnhof is the third largest long distance traffic junction in Germany.

982 trains pass though it each day and make Dortmund Hauptbahnhof the busiest railway station in the Ruhr Area and (excluding the S-Bahn networks) the second busiest in Germany only after Köln Hauptbahnhof.

Famous quotes containing the words station and/or central:

    To act the part of a true friend requires more conscientious feeling than to fill with credit and complacency any other station or capacity in social life.
    Sarah Ellis (1812–1872)

    Sweet weight,
    in celebration of the woman I am
    and of the soul of the woman I am
    and of the central creature and its delight
    I sing for you. I dare to live.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
