If you love trains this is for you! Although it has been modernised it still holds much of its old charm. It’s busy and central, you can see the cathedral for it, loads of museums in easy walking.

This is now a modern station with lots of space and kiosks. It is also very busy with pedestrian traffic flowing through it

We had a stopover here to see the cathedral right outside but our first train was late so we only saw the outside of the cathedral. The station is large but very easy to navigate. The cathedral is beautiful.

This station is very compact. Very easy to navigate and with many good options for your trip. They even have a small grocery store with very affordable prices.

There are lifts to all the platforms. I'm not sure about getting from platform to train, though. ICE and Thalys are the best trains.
