As a space it's interesting in itself - a former railway station turned exhibition space. It's more fun to get to if you get slightly lost and end up climbing under a fence round the back of the Charité. Warhol and Lichtenstein - good setting. Cy Twomby, so so. Interesting range of up coming contemporary stuff in the annexe. Could... More

The current installations , especially Harun Faroki, a very engaging piece. The Lichtenstein and Warhol collections are compelling. The expansive bahnhof wall art exhibit is stunning. The pounding of the plaster still ringing in my ears. The space is stunning.

As someone else said art appreciation is subjective. I liked their Warhol and Lichtenstein pictures. Some of the installations were good in that they were unsettling - particularly one that was in a dark cellar. Other work such Cy Twomby left me cold. The building is impressive and the cafe a treat.

Hamburger Bahnhof is a former railway station in Berlin. Today it serves as the Museum für Gegenwart (Museum for the Present), a contemporary art museum. And what a fine Place it is. Hamburger Bahnhof has surely been a grand building. As usual in Berlin, you can imagine it, but today only frames remain. But the place is enormous. And interesting.... More

I have been to the Hamburger Bahnhof quite a few times, and again in July. Very spontaenously booked a tour and it was well worth to be guided through the permament collection for a good hour. The guide covered the substantial Beuys and Warhol collections, Rauschenberg and a few other contemporary artists. I like the space and would definitely recommend... More

To visit only if you are a lover of extreme forms of art, like that of Joseph Beuys. The greatest attraction is the building itself, once a busy railway station, now a collection of contemporary art. It is airy, silent, disquieting, even creepy. A far cry from the imposing, reassuring beauty of the Pergamon Museum.

A cutting edge contemporary art museum in a cleverly converted rail station with lots of room for big contemporary room sized installations. An outstanding core collection of modern and contemporary masters with beautiful Warhols but we had the most fun with the Bruce Nauman video and other contemporary installations. Nice little cafe for a cup of coffee and cake.

On comparing this to the Pompidou art gallery in Paris is like comparing the Eiffel Tower to a lamppost. Overpriced, hard to navigate and half empty with grumpy staff who watch you like a hawk. There needs to be a lot more in this gallery to warrant the high admission fee

The museum itself is set in the old main train station. Quite pricey admission. Great contemporary pieces on show as well as numerous Warhol's.
