Europe’s hippest capital boasts non-stop nightlife, cutting-edge fashion, cosmopolitan eats and museum treasures galore. At the centre of the World and Cold Wars, it also oozes history, much of it sobering.
This architecturally impressive neoclassical building which used to be one of Berlin’s main railway stations (Hamburger Bahnhof), now houses one of the largest and most significant public collections of contemporary art in the world.
The focus is on art since the 1960s (where the Neue Nationalgalerie leaves off), and includes a mix of sculpture, painting, installations and multi-media.
