Built in 1846 as the terminus of the Berlin–Hamburg line, this is the only station building from this time still to be preserved. It was later used as a residential and administrative building, and from 1904 as a transport and construction museum. After the Second World War, the Hamburger Bahnhof stood unused for decades in the no man’s land between East and West Berlin. Finally, in 1996, it was opened as the Museum für Gegenwart. Address: Invalidenstraße 50–51 in 10557 Berlin.
