Public tour | Workshop | Concert | Action Day

For three days – Friday, 16 June, 10.00 to 22.00, Saturday, 17 June, and Sunday, 18 June 2023, 11.00 to 18.00 – Hamburger Bahnhof celebrates the launch of the three new collection presentations with free admission to all exhibitions and programs.

The entire museum opens up to the public: the inner courtyard becomes an open-air stage and art picnic area, visitors dance the tango in the historic hall, build a giant sculpture, collect sounds for the Hamburger Bahnhof soundtrack, or use the walls of the Rieckhallen as a pop-up drawing studio.
