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.

Top of the bill is the Marx collection, a heavyweight line-up of works by Anselm Kiefer, Robert Rauschenberg and Cy Twombly, plus more than 60 drawings by Andy Warhol.
