Destruction in World War II and Reconstruction

In World War II the station building lost all its roofs. Parts of the façade and the interior walls were also damaged.

However, the structure of the building remained largely intact, and after the war it could be repaired, albeit gradually, but except in a few cases without great changes. Conspicuous changes were, for example, the open roof-trusses in the platform concourse and Large Ticket-Hall, or in the tower the closing of the circular openings and the fitting of intermediate ceilings.
