Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart

The Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart is a renowned museum for contemporary art and is the largest building of the Nationalgalerie in Berlin. Originally built as a railroad station between Hamburg and Berlin in 1846, the building was converted several times before it was finally opened as a museum in 1996. The architecture shows elements from the founding period as well as extensions from the early 1900s. After the building was badly damaged during the war and unused for decades, it was revived in 1987.

Today, the museum presents important collections from the National Gallery as well as the Friedrich Christian Flick Collection on permanent loan. With the converted Rieckhallen, the Hamburger Bahnhof has an extended exhibition space of over 10,000 square meters and is one of the most important venues for contemporary art in the world.
