The Münzviertel, the site of the Hamburg Mint until the mid-1970s, was and is closely linked to its surroundings around the main railway station. In the 18th century, the Geesthang was a park with an open-air theatre and flowers, then came the villas of the free thinkers and the park became gardens. When the Hammerbrook began to be drained at the end of the 19th century, the Münzviertel was a showcase area as the gateway to Hammerbrook, and the mayor's flat was in the Münzburg. Today, the Münzviertel is known for the community-oriented commitment of its residents and the urban mix of art, social education and diverse culture.
We feel connected to our neighbourhood. Since 2021, we have been a member of the Münzviertel neighbourhood advisory board with the Viva con Agua Foundation, in order to be actively involved in the neighbourhood and to be able to advocate for the interests of the neighbourhood externally. We have already been able to support the annual Münzviertelfest and exhibit artworks from the Münzviertel at the Millerntor Gallery.
