A station that is more than a waiting area – this is the beginning of the description of the bus station Poppenbuettel.  To enable the walking passengers to reach the busses dry, safely and nimbly from the train station nearby the designers choose a light weight roof again.

The light roof is showing an unbelievable transparency and lightness. The design of the bridge and the bus station are recognized unique from a large distance.
