The last couple of years I visited many exotic places but sometimes I missed to cover what is right in front of me.

This is the new main train station in Vienna, Austria. Well not exactly new. The opening ceremony took place almost three years ago but I haven’t got the time to have a look. I’m not traveling by train a lot. The last couple of years the only train I used to ride on was the Nozomi express in between Tokyo and Osaka. I guess I got spoiled.

And I only visited the place now because I had an hour to kill after dropping my guests from South Korea at their hotel. We spent an afternoon at the Schoenbrunn castle and before dinner they wanted to get their stuff back to the hotel and got changed. So one hour for me with nothing to do except having a look at the nearby train station.

Underground there is a big shopping mall but I was more interested in the platforms and in the construction of the roof.

But why a new train station? What happened to the old one? The former main translation in Vienna was located in a completely different area. And it still exists. It’s name is Westbahnhof and it also has been renovated a couple of years ago
