If you want to see a gigantic Warholl (Mao), if you want to know why Roy Lichtenstein is great and you want to see an amazing Anselm Kiefer, this is the place to be. Also an inpressive collection of large installations of Beuys. The presentation of the Beuys collection is unfortunate, the rest is well done. The Marx collection is... More

My wife and I visited this museum in november 2014. The building itself is a former train station ( Bahnhof) which has been extensively restored. It has now a shine white interior still showing the original structures, with unusual exhibits. The building itself already makes the visit worthwhile. We further enjoyd the exhibitions of a.o. Andy Warhol, as well as... More

The Museum pass only gives access to the permanent collection which is worth visiting for its Warhol and Lichtenstein.

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.
