Introduction

The Train Station, commissioned by Wilhelm II and designed by the architect Jürgen Kröger (Berlin), was built in a Rhenish Romanesque Revival style. It was built for the transport of goods and people but it also had a strategic goal to move as many soldiers as possible in the shortest possible time. This prestigious building (1905-1908) is 300m long and contains the Emperor's apartments and reception pavilion, reception halls, galleries and service areas.
