The Hamburger Bahnof was easy to find, I walked there from the Reichstag which was about half a mile to a mile. You must pass through a train station to cross the river and from there it is easy to get to. The gallery hosts a good collection of modern and contemporary art which is all very inspiring. It is...

We went to see the Warhols and Liechtensteins and, not only up to expectations but included pieces that we'd not come across before in books. The rest was that sort of modern art that needs to be explained in the context of the intention of the artist when they made it. The two that struck me was the performance piece... More

Poorly signed and slow entry for no reason. All contemporary art but entirely inconsistent. The venue was of interest. Dieter Roth had an exhibition I'm.not sure if it was temporary but that too was surprising, challenging and worthless in equal measure. It was of some humour to see the different reactions to the dogs barking exhibition. Some of his stuff... More

Berlin's 'official' home of contemporary art is a Prussian Musee d'Orsay without the Seine and the charm. It's expensive, and full of work by academic male artists. (That's the result of being largely based around one collection, that of Erich Marx.) At 14 Euros a head, it's expensive, though very beautiiful, though it could learn a lot from Tate. It... More

I go here with a group of approx 30 students annually in Feb. Almost without fail it is hit and miss as to whether all of the galleries are open and this can be disappointing as it is not always made clear on the website. The very large gallery which I had already told them about, and which has remained... More

If your time is not unlimited, skip the place. Huge building with not too much to show for it. A rather haphazard private collection "adopted" by the municipality, but not a well-designed presentation of great modern artists. Also: street signs to the museum are misleading, and the reception guy, when notified, reacted with a shrug: "Yes, we know about it,... More

I guess I thought at first that this place was about the history of this station. But I was slightly disappointed when I entered. Although I like the Art, Especially that of Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and Joseph Beuys. The selection of artwork is good, though. The staff is O.K. I didn't know that they had a wardrobe so I...

Staying in Moabit

Neighborhood Profile
You may not realize Moabit is one of the city’s most central neighborhoods when you arrive at Hauptbahnhof (central station). Surrounded by waterways, Moabit is a quiet island protected from the hustle and bustle of Berlin. The crowds that do gather prefer spending their evenings in cozy restaurants over the party venues offered by other districts. With its beautiful parks, old housing and romantic industrial areas, life has traditionally been relaxed and a bit slower here. But the tone may soon be changing. Reasonable housing costs and proximity to city center are attracting more young Berliners and international visitors. This interest is encouraging new bars, cafés and nightclubs, making Moabit a candidate for most up-and-coming neighborhood in the city.
