With the opening of the Hamburger Bahnhof in 1996, the Nationalgalerie was given a permanent exhibition venue for contemporary art, which is shown on an exhibition area of around 13,000 square meters. Historic parts of the building with extraordinary room heights, modern annexes with geometrically clear floor plans and luminous ceilings provide ideal conditions for the presentation of modern art.

The holdings consist of exhibits from the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and works from the private Berlin collection of Erich Marx. The Marx Collection is based on works by artists such as Andy Warhol, Cy Twombly, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, Anselm Kiefer and Joseph Beuys. In addition, the holdings include over 450 drawings by Beuys and nearly 60 sheets by Warhol. Also on display are groups of works by painters of the Italian Transavanguardia and representatives of Minimal Art.

The English artist Richard Long with his "Berlin Circle" seeks in his works the direct reference to the place. Likewise, the artists Gerhard Merz and Dan Flavin were inspired by the house. The entire ground floor in the western Ehrenhoff wing is dedicated to works by Beuys. A conscious decision was made to forego a historically defined presentation of the works and to choose an open, cross-collection concept that includes all media used by artists.
