Where in the World (220)

deutsche_bahn_ag-logo-svgThe Deutsche Bahn logo on one of the buildings along with the word “hauptbahnhof” on another building (I blurred out the name of the hauptbahnhof as that was too much of a clue) were both an indication that it was somewhere in Germany. The word hauptbahnhof is also used in Austria but DB would have been ÖBB so that eliminates places like Vienna. Likewise Swiss cities can be eliminated too because the railways there are SBB.

All the answers were focused on German speaking Europe with almost all the answers within Germany’s borders. However, a number of different German cities were suggested.

Unless you have actually travelled through the station like I have it would be a challenge to identify which city it was in. However, a little research in places like Google Images would reveal that the glass and steel structure is in fact Berlin Hauptbahnhof. It is quite an amazing station as it is on three levels with local, regional, national and international trains arriving and departing one above the other.

Berlin Hauptbahnhof

Congratulations this week to Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Tim (@timofnewbury), Atul (@pixodentist) and Davide (@travelling_dave).

This week the city to be identified from the distorted photograph is likely to be a little more challenging. Firstly it is way off the beaten tourist track. Secondly it is far more likely to appear in the news than in any tourist programme or brochure. Good luck.
