Hamburger Bahnhof

One of the most famous art galleries in Berlin is placed in a train station. The historic Hamburger Bahnhof, built in 1846 at the Tiergarten, was terribly damaged during the Second World War, but has been restored and reopened, with extra modern components added to the architecture, as an exhibition venue for an extensive contemporary art collection. The former station now provides 107,639 square feet (10,000 sq metres) of space filled with works by the likes of Andy Warhol, Josephy Beuys and Roy Lichtenstein. The basis of the exhibition is the Marx private collection, but there are changing exhibitions and good examples of the Italian Transavanguardia and minimalist art on show too.
