the Berlin Biennale, and also the Deustchebank Halle exhibition, which serves as a platform form artists from Africa and Asia. A place not to be overlooked in the Berlin art scene is the Hamburger Bahnhof Contemporary Art Museum.

Located right next to the busy Berlin central station, the Hamburger Banhof building was originally a part of the train station. It is a surprising location for a museum, though this unique setting makes for an exceptional atmosphere for exhibitions. Even the original name of the station has been preserved together with the current signage for Hamburger Bahnhof.

In this building filled with history, the museum collection focuses on art from the 1960s onwards. Hamburger Bahnhof makes full use of the train station’s former entrance hall, where it exhibits artworks from solo and group shows. However, this space isn’t simply a place for storing art. Notably, artist Carsten Höller installed a mini-zoo at Hamburger Bahnhof with an artwork featuring living reindeers; also the space was once filled with balloons by Tomas Saraceno, who transformed the exhibition hall into a beautiful, weightless room with his exhibition.

Hamburger Bahnhof displays works on loan or that were donated by collectors, the main collection being one named after patron Eirich Markus, the Markus collection. Influential artists from the 1960s such as Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Anselm Kiefer are a part of the museum’s collection. An original of Andy Warhol’s iconic lithograph of Mao Zedong makes for one the most eye catching pieces at Bahnhof.

The German National offers a prize for young contemporary artists working in Germany called “National Gallery Prize for Young Art “, whose chosen finalists have their work exhibited at Hamburger Bahnhof. With this presence in the German arts scene, the museum offers a very important contribution to the Berlin arts and the future of German art as a whole too.
With an outstanding collection on display at a very unique setting, Hamburger Bahnhof is place you shouldn’t miss whenever you visit Berlin.
