The Hamburger Kunsthalle, the Hamburg museum of visual arts. I went there last month for the Edgar Degas exhibition and as always ended up touring the whole building (with the expection of the modern art section, the exhibitions are just not my taste). They had some really awesome exhibitions in the past, for example Caspar David Friedrich and one of my favourite painters, Francis Bacon. I went twice to that one just to see the Screaming Pope (see the Wiki article I linked), it's a painting that really gives me the creeps even when I look at it on a computer screen and seeing it in real life, measuring 60×46 inches, was even more creepy. It looks like it may come to life every second, screaming or laughing madly at you.
When you stand in fron of the Kunsthalle and turn round, you see the Hamburg central station:
