What people say

"🇬🇧 Platform 9 3/4 at King's Cross Station is a famous fictional location from the Harry Potter series, where students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry catch the Hogwarts Express train to the wizarding school. While Platform 9 3/4 is a creation of author J.K. Rowling's imagination, King's Cross Station has embraced its fictional counterpart by installing a special photo opportunity for Harry Potter fans. The installation consists of a luggage trolley partially embedded in the wall, giving the illusion that it is about to disappear through the platform barrier. Visitors can pose with the trolley and have their photo taken, reenacting the iconic moment from the books and films. The location has become a popular pilgrimage site for Harry Potter enthusiasts, who flock to King's Cross Station to experience a touch of magic in the real world. 🇩🇪 Plattform 9 3/4 im Bahnhof King's Cross ist ein berühmter fiktiver Ort aus der Harry-Potter-Serie, an dem die Schüler der Hogwarts-Schule für Hexerei und Zauberei den Hogwarts-Expresszug zur Zaubererschule nehmen. Während Plattform 9 3/4 eine Schöpfung der Vorstellungskraft der Autorin J.K. Rowling ist, hat der Bahnhof King's Cross sein fiktives Pendant angenommen, indem er eine spezielle Fotogelegenheit für Harry-Potter-Fans installiert hat. Die Installation besteht aus einem Gepäckwagen, der teilweise in der Wand eingelassen ist und den Eindruck erweckt, als würde er gleich durch die Bahnsteigsperre verschwinden. Besucher können sich mit dem Gepäckwagen fotografieren lassen und den ikonischen Moment aus den Büchern und Filmen nachstellen. Der Ort ist zu einer beliebten Pilgerstätte für Harry-Potter-Enthusiasten geworden, die zum Bahnhof King's Cross strömen, um einen Hauch von Magie in der realen Welt zu erleben."
