Only a forlorn fragment of the entrance portal is left of the Anhalter Bahnhof, once Berlin’s finest and busiest railway station, surrounded by luxury hotels and bustling cafés. Marlene Dietrich departed from here for Hollywood, and the king of Italy and the tsar of Russia were among the official visitors to Berlin arriving at this station. Although badly bombed in WWII, Anhalter Bahnhof remained operational for years but was eventually eclipsed by Ostbahnhof. Not even vociferous protests could halt its demolition in 1960.
