  Berlin Hauptbahnhof - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Berlin Hauptbahnhof is the central railway station in Berlin, Germany.
The 1961 construction of the Berlin Wall further isolated the station, and led to a boycott of the S-Bahn in West Berlin that lasted until the 1980s, when operation of the West Berlin S-Bahn lines was transferred to the West Berlin transit authority, the BVG.
It was decided early in 2005 that the station would be renamed "Berlin Hauptbahnhof" on the date of its opening, May 28, 2006, to avoid confusing rail passengers.

 | Berlin Hauptbahnhof | Typophile   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
Some of my Berliner friends criticize the new Hauptbahnhof because it flows the ICE trains away from the traditional Berlin Stadtbahn stations, but that is a very minor flaw.
One of the major flaws of the Berlin train transit so far was that if one train was late, the entire system was shuffled around because practically all trains had to be rescheduled.
Also, there must be fears that the new Hauptbahnhof will overshadow the efficiency, charm, and character of the other Berlin stations, which are world-class facilities in their own right.
