Contemporary art museum with a great variety of exhibitions. It is a big place, so have in mind that you will probably need more than 2-3 hours. You can find a permanent exhibition of an outstanding selection of works by Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and many others. There are also current exhibitions, so if you want to visit... More

This place is the Tate Modern of Berlin, with some Warhol and Lichtenstein, very quirky and funky. However, the German 'jobsworth' attendant said we were not permitted to see the temporary exhibition, but the walk to part of the museum took us along the length of said exhibit. What a dick! The Germans do like to boss people around. The... More

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
