    Great museum, but check what's on when you plan to go, so you don't get there when half is closed for installation of a new exhibition. They change them almost every season.

    A stunning exhibition in an historical and beautiful building. You'll be impressed for sure because the structural design of the old station makes exposition even more exciting.

    Newly renovated at the time, this railway station was the site of the State of Art Today exhibition gathering 32 artists from all over the world for the Berlin Capital of Culture celebration in 1988. Read more

    Installations in the main hall and awesome collections in both wings. Reserve at least 2-3 hours for a full stroll.

    Wonderful contemporary art museum in a beautiful old train station. Since the showings are mostly temporary exhibitions, check out the schedules before going.

    One of the world's great modern and contemporary art museums--the space itself is fantastic and unique and the collection doesn't disappoint.

    One of the best museums for contemporary art in Berlin is the Hamburger Bahnhof, located right next to Berlin Central Station.

    The oldest of survived train stations, it served less than 40 years before was recycled to a museum. Germany, the land of disposable train stations and recycled museums!

    I went there without any expectations or really having checked out any of the artists. Boy, was I in for a surprise! Martin Kippenberger (February until 18th of August) was a great one to get to know.

    Typical wackos drawing and constructing weird stuff. Interesting nonetheless. Keep in mind the museum is quite big and might take you more than 3 hours to view it all!

    The historic railway terminus was opened 1996 as the "Museum of the Present". International as well as contemporary art can be viewed on 13 000m2.

    It has an interesting collection focused on contemporary art with temporary exhibitions. Don't miss the one that is now on, Cloud City by Tomas Saraceno (until February 19th) and many others.

    Museum of modern art. Unfortunately with ticket without temporary exhibitions you may miss significant part-permanent part was not very big and takes only around 1-2h to visit.

    Ginormous space with important shows of late 20th-C and contemporary art. Don't miss the Beuys works on permanent display.

    Amazing building, amazing collection. Do check out the sound-art exhibit, above the restaurant. An alarm bell silently ringing in vacuum...

    It is very big and you would need ideally two days at least to examine everything properly. Great, great museum!!

    Tomas Sarenceno's 'Cloud Cities' blurs the lines between art, science fiction and reality. If you only do one thing this week, make sure it's paying Hamburger Bahnhof a visit! Read more

    If you like it droll, whimsical and bizarre the Hamburger Bahnhof is a great station to stop at. All Aboard!
