The Hamburger Bahnhof was built in the mid-nineteenth century as the terminus of the railway line connecting Hamburg and Berlin, and was converted into a museum of transport and technology at the start of the twentieth century. Since 1996 it has housed the contemporary art collection of the Nationalgalerie. Today, Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin is among the world’s largest museums for contemporary art. Alongside special exhibitions, works from the collection of the Nationalgalerie, the Marx Collection, the Friedrich Christian Flick Collection and the Marzona Collection are shown here in some 10,000 square meters. The ground floor of the west wing is reserved for an ensemble of largescale sculptural works by Joseph Beuys that is unique in the world. The museum rearranges its collections permanently and presents them under diverse thematic focuses. At the same time there are regularly special exhibitions on display reflecting on tendencies and interdisciplinarity in contemporary and post-war art.
