Two suspected attackers wielding axes injured five or six people, one seriously. One victim is a 13-year old girl whose upper arm was slashed.
German police say two suspected attackers have been arrested after the incident that took place on Thursday at 9pm.
A police spokesman said more suspected attackers are believed to be at large.
The attack took place at Central Station in Dusseldorf where there are a lot of migrants.
The spokesman said: “We are not using the words ‘rampage’ or ‘terror’.”
