GERMANY ~ The Central Station of Hanover - Ernst-August-Platz ~

... Lovely surprise nr3 from postcard friend Dustin...  view of one of Germany’s finest railway stations... and it is also an outstanding shopping gallery with lots of restaurants and snack-bars... this is one of 21 German stations that belong to category 1... these stations are big and busy.... they are housed in prestigious buildings and are usually in the center of the city... this year Hanover celebrates the 175th anniversary of its linking to the railway network with a great special train postmark... Thank you very much Dustin for once more a unique philatelic item!! ❀◕ ‿ ◕❀
