Antwerp Central Station elected nr 1 by Mashable

02.09.2015 - Dries Tack

The Antwerp Central Station is one of the world's most impressive railway stations. Dubbed the 'Railway Cathedral', it is one of the main landmarks in Antwerp. The popular American website mashable.com just elected it the nr 1 train station around the world.

The railway station was built between 1895 and 1905 and replaced a wooden train station built in 1854 by engineer Auguste Lambeau. Today the whole complex is over 400 meters (1300ft) long and has two entrances, a historic domed building at the Astrid square and a modern atrium at the Kievit square.

On the last spot and 12th place in Mashable's list we find another Belgian train station : Liege-Guillemins Station by starchitect Santiago Calatrava.
