Köln Hauptbahnhof (usually translated from German as ''Cologne Central Station'', short form: Köln Hbf) is the main train station for the city of Cologne in western Germany. The station is an important local, national and international hub. On an average day, about 250,000 travellers pass by, leaving it tied with Hanover and Düsseldorf for fifth busiest station in Germany. The automatic baggage locker facility with over 1,000 located underground baggage compartments is another feature of the Cologne railway station. The station's building also hosts a large shopping mall, the Colonaden. In 1945 architect and urban planner Rudolf Schwarz called Cologne the "world's greatest heap of debris". In 1957 the station was rebuilt after the centre of the city was wiped out. Architects Schmitt and Schneider designed the new entry hall and the bowl shaped roof. In 2000 the station was renovated and expanded by Busmann + Haberer.
