Arriving by Train

The main station consists of several levels. The trains of long-distance traffic and regional traffic arrive in the terminus station above ground which has 24 rails. These rails are connected by a concourse and a tunnel which is located in the middle of the platforms. The tram stops are also above ground in front of the main building (exit main hall at rail 12 and 13) as well as in front of the exit “Mannheimer Straße” which is situated at the south side of the concourse near rail 1.
The bus station is also in front of the main building.

You can reach the S-Bahn and the U-Bahn station through the B-level with stairs, lifts and escalators.

The S-Bahn station is also directly connected with the concourse. Visually impaired persons can orientate themselves with the help of an optical-tactile guidance system.
