Friedrichstraße is a major interchange station for S-Bahn, and regional trains in Berlin's eastern city centre.
There is a ticket office (Reisezentrum) where intercity and international tickets can be booked (warning: queues can be long here). A small number of left-luggage lockers (Schließfächer) are available near the ticket office. Toilet facilities (expensive) are located in the basement.
For grocery shopping outside of usual opening hours there is a branch of Edeka (Mon. - Sat. 6am - 10pm; Sundays and public holidays 8am - 10pm); and also Rossmann and several smaller shops.
