Bicycle hotel  

Thanks to the high-quality materials and attention to detail, the parking facilities have been given the nickname ‘bicycle hotel’. The facilities are permanently guarded and you can park your bike there free of charge for the first 24 hours.

The parking facilities have been carefully incorporated into their surroundings and aligned with the height under the station’s iconic zig-zag ‘prawn cracker roof’. The façade construction consists of black steel profiles with integrated drainpipes. The plinth is made of concrete and functions as collision protection. The parking facilities are inviting and light up at night: this contributes to a safe environment.
