The synchrotron powder diffraction beamline B2 at HASYLAB/DESY is described. The beamline is capable of high-resolution powder diffraction as well as time-resolved studies and offers several sophisticated ancillary equipments for special applications. A newly developed image-plate system allows for kinetic studies with good resolution in the minutes range. Numerous sample environments allow for various standard applications including structure solution, kinetic studies and in situ observations under flexible and well defined conditions. Representative examples are shown for these setups, which are also supported for experiments of external users.
