The well-restored architecture, which, contrary to a popular legend, does not come from Gustave Eiffel, is worth seeing. According to various classifications, it is one of the ten most beautiful railway stations in the world, of which a photo gallery hangs in the station. On the cross-platform there are two small steam locomotives as a monument, a very decorative ensemble. A friendly young man in uniform and with good English introduced himself as a station guide and led me around. Unfortunately, the group came, so I didn't have more time to explore.
