According to AFP, at least five people are injured, one of those seriously injured.
The incident occurred at 21:00 local time.
- We were waiting for the train. Then suddenly someone with an ax jumped out and began swinging at people. There was blood everywhere. I have experienced a lot, but never such a thing, said a witness.
Spiegel's reporter, Fidelius Schmid, writes on Twitter that several wounded lay bleeding on the ground.
The motive or the identity of the perpetrator is currently not known.
According to Sky News, more suspected attackers may be at large.
The train station and all rails were closed after the incident. Police have cordoned off a large area and helicopters are in the air.
