What to expect?

The biggest names from the second half of the 20th century art world, Andy Warhol, Cy Twombly, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein and Anselm Kiefer, are on display in Hamburger Bahnhof (literally Hamburg Railway Station). Apart from its unparalleled acquisitions of classical, early modern, and 19th century art, the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation has acquired a spectacular repository of contemporary art. 

Nowadays 100,000 square meters are devoted to works from the collection of Berlin State Museums, alongside pieces from the renowned collectors, Erich Marx and Friedrich Christian Flick. Besides large format works by the contemporary pioneers mentioned above Warhol, Twombly, Rauschenberg, Lichtenstein, Kiefer, the collection includes elaborate installations as well as filmic spaces by artists including Paul McCarthy, Jason Rhoades, Rodney Graham, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, and Stan Douglas.

 

The second half of walk moves to the contemporary painting collection, where we focus groundbreaking works by Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Georg Baselitz, as well as Neo Rauch and Daniel Richter. Strong visual contrasts and a simultaneous emphasis on the continuity of artistic developments will form the trademark of this double tour. By looking at art analytically, we aim to offer an comprehensive view of the famous individual art works, while building “bridges” between art movements and individual artists of different decades. For an intermission in our 3 hour experience, we can pause between collections for a well-deserved coffee break in the Sarah Wiener Café.

What it is modern art! It is useful to visit the museum for the general cultural development. Although there are things you don't understand and doubting how it could be called art. Our guide was very useful, information about the artists and their creations very interesting! Then it was easier to understand the incomprehensible. Otherwise we would think that all this was wasting time.

Interesting to see how the railways station was transformed into a gallery of contemporary art! Spacious beautiful exhibition place with a broad collection of Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Rauschenberg, Beuys, etc. and winners of Biennales. It was grate to have a guide to navigate in there without getting lost!

This is a nice museum and informative excursion. There is interesting collection of famous artists. Guide is very professional. But we could not take with us even a small backpack, everything had to be left in the locker room and stuffy, there is something with ventilation.
