About the station

Stuttgart’s main train station, Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof/Hbf is currently being transformed in a massive construction project, Stuttgart 21.

Stuttgart Hbf is currently a terminal station, but on completion the long distance ICE and IC trains to/from Stuttgart will use new underground platforms/gleis -  meaning that long distance trains passing through the city will no longer have to reverse direction.

The new underground platforms/tracks will also be linked to the Stuttgart-Ulm high speed line that is currently also under construction.

Disruption to passengers using Stuttgart Hbf during the construction work is being minimised, but the tracks/gleis that the long distance trains depart from, have been moved back from the main concourse, so allow additional time to catch a train.

Due to the building work Stuttgart Hbf is currently a station of two parts.

(1) The main station building still houses the ticket hall, left luggage lockers and the access to the S-Bahn and U-Bahn trains and the Reisezentrum reservation desk.

(2) A temporary, secondary concourse has been constructed by the gleis/platforms/tracks, that the long distance and Regio trains depart from.

Allow a minimum of 5 mins to walk from the temporary concourse to the facilities in the main station building.

However, if you will be connecting between these trains, you can wait on the new temporary concourse.

If you want to use the left luggage lockers, don’t follow the signs pointing towards them on the main concourse.

Instead take the escalators one level down towards the U-Bahn station, the left luggage lockers will then be to the right.
Follow the signs on the main concourse and you will have to carry your bag(s) down a flight of stairs.
