Hamburger Bahnhof is a former train station in Berlin, Germany on Invalidenstraße in the Berlin-Tiergarten district opposite the Charité. Severely damaged during World War II, it has not been used as a station since then. (North-bound long distance trains from Berlin now leave from Berlin Hauptbahnhof, the former Lehrter Bahnhof, which is just 400m to the south-west.) It found a new use in 1987 as the Museum für Gegenwart.
The station was built according to Friedrich Neuhaus’ plans in 1846/47 as the starting point of the Berlin-Hamburg railroad, it is the only still existing terminus building in Berlin from the late classic period, and counts as one of the oldest station buildings in Germany.over 6 years ago
