The swift changes taking place throughout Germany's capital have also seized hold of the city's museums. The spectacular re-opening of the Old National Gallery on the Museum Island, which attracted thousands for visitors from far and near, is only the tip of the iceberg. Destination Germany has been visiting Hamburg Station, which has traded its former function as a centre of rail transport for a new role.

Now the high-ceilinged concourse presents an overview of modern art from 1960 until the present day. And no tour of the Berlin's most attractive exhibition facilities would be complete without the German Museum of Technology.

Compared with Munich's 100-year-old German Museum, the Museum of Technology is of course a mere "beginner", only having opened to the public in 1982. But bare figures can be misleading, because it is in fact re-establishing a long tradition of great Berlin museums which dealt with the discoveries of science and technology up until the Second World War.
