This is mainly a contemporary as opposed to modern art gallery in a refurbished railway station. There are Warhols and Beuys in the permanent collection but many city museums have better examples. I find that some contemporary art requires a lot from the viewer. I recommend that visitors unsure about this do some research before hand.

Early Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, all in a beautiful old train station. Don't know what was up with the people working there but they bruskly start to shoo people out 20 minutes before closing and block the bathrooms. Jeez. And don't even think about touching the touchable art exhibits. Not ALL parts apparently touchable, but you won't know that... More

Hamburger Bahnhof Museum was hosting a temporary exhibit on Black Mountain College, the progressive arts-oriented college founded in western North Carolina in 1933. The Black Mountain exhibit was mildly interesting, in that it included art and photography, including photographs of dance and other performances by faculty and students. Walter Gropius, Anni and Josef Albers, Merce Cunningham, John Cage and Buckminster... More

Interesting building and a few interesting exhibits however I really enjoyed sitting down and being tricked by other parts moving around me into thinking I was on a merry go round

First of all one should admit that this is a museum for experts in modern art; for others, it is inconsistent, boring, ridiculous and more... The building per se is nice but there is no way to pay 14 euros to see an old train station. I am sure that people who love this type of art will also love... More

Would have got only 3 stars but for Warhol and Rauschenberg on the walls. I was looking forward to inventive use of the space acknowledging its former use, but if it was there I missed it. One of the exhibitions seemed utterly pointless and frankly out of place. The cafe is in a nice location but was spoiled by rude... More

I agree with some of the traveler's reviews. This gallery is an utter disappointment. Mind you, this is the second gallery I was looking forward to seeing in Berlin and was totally dismayed. The docents are quite elderly and unhelpful unlike in the other galleries in Berlin. I'm not discriminating against the elderly because I've met some in Berlin who... More

We were very surprised by the price when we arrived but we had travelled a long way across town to come here so went on despite the €14 each entry fee (no discount with welcome card). There was a lot to see although it wasn't really to our taste and there was a lot of walking involved (I would estimate... More

From the person at the box office and person working in the dressing room to informants in exhibition area everybody were very rude and unpolite. I don't expect that kind of treatment when I pay 14 euros to see the exhibition! Great space, but artwork not the best I've seen. It was just plain and boring..... Only great thing is... More

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.
