The Hamburger Bahnhof houses Berlin's Museum for Contemporary Art. It's Berlin's most important exhibition space dedicated to contemporary art from the 1950s to present day. Work from Andy Warhol, Joseph Beuys, Keith Haring and many other innovative contemporary artists can be found here. The museum is part of Berlin's Nationalgalerie, and the permanent exhibition includes the Frederick Christian Flick, Erich Marx and Marzona collections. The museum serves as a showcase for multiple forms of art including film, video, design, photography, and even installation and experimental work.
The museum gets its name from its former use as a train station. The Hamburger Bahnhof was the terminus station for the Hamburg-Berlin route starting in the late 1840s. The elements of the original historical building combine with modern architecture to provide an ideal setting for displaying contemporary art. The exhibition space encompasses more than 107,000 square feet in addition to a gift shop and a world class restaurant.
