Zürich Stadelhofen Railway Station - Architecture

Architecture

In the 1990s the train station was rebuilt by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. The station building from 1894 was preserved and the surroundings were completely redone in a fancy twist of modern art, thus forming a striking combination of the new and the old.

Both station building and platforms are inscribed on the Swiss Inventory of Cultural Property of National Significance.
