For more than a century, the Anhalter Bahnhof was the most important railway station in Berlin. Located at the heart of the German capital, this beautiful station with a hundred meter wide façade was covered with exquisite sculptures cast in zinc, and had lavish and spacious interiors with waiting rooms and other facilities for passengers that came all the way from Leipzig, Frankfurt, Munich and beyond. The roof was a huge iron and glass structure that rose to more than thirty meters and underneath which forty thousand people could stand at the same time. The Anhalter Bahnhof was Berlin's biggest and finest station.
