European Railway Station Where is it No. 39
Author: andersonb109

Another 2 fer. Both large stations from the same country. The second's train shed is suppose to resemble an upside down ship to honor the maritime heritage of the city.

I know these two too well, so I'll let someone else have a go.

Look at the American signage too, Burger King and Saturn.
I got to stand in Hamburg's train shed in 2002 in amazement at the traffic and what a wonderful old Station too.
I had about a 3 hour layover there so I wandered over to the Platz to enjoy the atmosphere there as well.

Yes Hamburg. So the first one is?  Clue.  The excellent German Railway Museum just down the street.

Actually, Burger King is the only American signage visible that photo: "Saturn" is the name of one of the largest German electronics and applies stores, sort of the German equivalent of Best Buy, and is owned by German conglomorate Metro. Also visible in the photo are signs or advertisements for Ritter Sport chocolate (a German brand), Spar Express (a Dutch supermarket and convenience store chain), and Karstadt Sport, a German sporting goods chain.

Also one of the endpoints of the first steam-powered railway in Germany!

The first one looks like Nuremburg. Was there a couple of years ago, and visited the museum etc. chris uk.

Correct. Nuremberg was our last stop on a Viking river cruise a few years back. We had a tour of the city from a boy friend of Yana's mom when they knew each other way back in DDR times. I knew the museum was there but didn't expect a visit. Yana had asked her friend to take us there as a surprise. And the station was right down the street.  We also visited the crumbling Nazi parade grounds. Quite an experience to visualize what happened there. So this station must have been where Hitler arrived and departed frequently.
