Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin


Extracted from When We Think Of Berlin, buy yours here.

Bahnhof means station, and that’s what this used to be – although not since 1906. Today it’s a modern art museum, with a collection that includes many heavyweights, including Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol and Joseph Beuys, but for us it’s Dan Flavin’s internal and external light installations which really make this museum. The juxtaposition of an elegant 19th-century Prussian building with fluorescent lights feels distinctively of this city.
