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: http://www.astro.virginia.edu/ eww6n/math/Hilbert'sProblems.html Mathematical Developments Arising from Hilbert Problems, volume 28 of Proceedings of Symposia in Pure Mathematics, pages 1--34, Providence, Rhode Island.
