Arriving and Leaving at Wiesbaden Main Train Station
Since we switched our clocks to summer time last night (we "lost" one hour), I thought I post something time-related today. The Wiesbaden Hauptbahnhof (Main Train Station) came to mind right away...
When talking to people from other countries they always tell me about the German "Pünktlichkeit" (punctuality). Especially the trains seem to have this myth that they always go on time according to the time schedule.
Well... let's say they try to. I could tell you endless stories about them not leaving on time of course but that'll just be in my little part of the world :-). The official statistics say something about 85-95% punctuality.
By the way, the Wiesbaden Hauptbahnhof is a "Kopfbahnhof" (terminal station), meaning that when the trains come in, they have to leave "backwards" again.
