Which are the 23 Hilbert Problems?
The original was published in German in a couple of places. A
translation was published by the AMS in 1902.
This article has been reprinted in 1976 by the American Mathematical
Society (see references).
The AMS Symposium mentioned at the end contains a series of papers on
the then-current state of most of the Problems, as well as the
problems.
The URL contains the list of problems, and their current status:
