The Nationalgalerie encompasses a collection of international art from ca. 1800 to the present day. It is part of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and spread across several locations. While the Hamburger Bahnhof presents contemporary art, the Alte Nationalgalerie is devoted to the art of the 19th century. Two further Nationalgalerie locations housing works of early 20th century modernism are the Museum Berggruen and the Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg. The Neue Nationalgalerie is currently closed for refurbishment.

The collections of the Nationalgalerie at Hamburger Bahnhof show the artistic tendencies from 1960 to the present day. Since the opening of the museum in 1996, the presentation of the Marx Collection with works by artists such as Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Cy Twombly, has been of particular importance—in addition to the Nationalgalerie’s holdings of important works by artists such as Dieter Roth, Bruce Nauman and Carolee Scheemann. Based on these pioneers of traversing traditional art forms, the museum’s exhibitions and programmes focus on the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary art. In addition, the collection presentations also show works from the Friedrich Christian Flick Collection and the Marzona Collection. The holdings are presented in thematic exhibitions as well as varying collection presentations under the title ›The Collections. The Collections. Les Collections‹.
