Built in the mid-nineteenth century as the terminus of the railway line connecting Hamburg and Berlin, the Hamburger Bahnhof was converted into a museum of transportation and technology in the early twentieth century. Following the postwar division of Germany, the building was abandoned due to its peripheral location in the wasteland between East and West Berlin. In 1996, it reopened as a contemporary art venue of the Nationalgalerie. Today, the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin is one of the world’s largest and most significant public collections of contemporary art. With an exhibition space of approximately 10,000 square meters, the Hamburger Bahnhof displays works from the Nationalgalerie and other important international collections and hosts thematic exhibitions.
