The first railway station in Hanover was opened in 1847. Designed as a through station, it was the first in a major German city. In 1873, the station was completely redesigned.
Largely destroyed in the Second World War, it was initially rebuilt provisionally after the war and extended and redesigned several times over the course of time.
Today, the main station in the centre of Hanover occupies sixth place on the list of Deutsche Bahn's busiest long-distance stations. Every day, around 280,000 travellers pass through this station on around 750 trains, making it one of the most important railway hubs in the north.
