The Museum Für Gegenwart (Museum for the Present) is contemporary art in its finest form. Once a terminal station of the Berlin rail network the grand neoclassical style building now houses an impressive collection of art, photography, film and elaborate installations.

The permanent collection boasts works by the likes of Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol; whose infamous Chairman Mao masterpiece governs the main wall of the exhibition room. The extensive temporary collections, some of which are curiously located in old converted warehouses, feature a selection of extraordinary artworks ranging from unusual to downright bizarre. Previous exhibitions have showcased installations made from trash, tools or an old garden shed, as well as mesmerizing light animations projected into a hazy pitch-black room.

A visit will take at least two hours, but the adjacent Sarah Wiener café serves as a delightful, albeit pricey, lunch stop. Tickets (including temporary exhibitions) are €12 and €6 for concessions, but queues are common so buying advance tickets online is advisable.
