Lenzsiedlung

For more than four decades, Lenzsiedlung, a housing estate located in the heart of Hamburg, has been home to thousands of people from all walks of life. More than 3,000 people live here, making it one of Hamburg's densest residential areas. A mural asks the question: "Are we one world?"

Let’s hear from locals, community leaders, police and an artist about the challenges Lenzsiedlung once faced and how it managed to overcome them.

"We are all one community, it does not matter what country one comes from, whether black or white, whether Afghan or Turk, we are all one. There shouldn’t be any discrimination."
 – Leyla*, Lenzsiedlung resident 


"I have not a feeling that I'm not accepted here.
I feel integrated." 
– Samim, Lenzsiedlung resident

Lenzsiedlung was built in the 1970s in the district of Eimsbüttel as part of a program for urban development. The community is a melting pot of cultures, as many residents hail from foreign countries.

In 2009 there were over 3,000 inhabitants occupying the tall apartment complexes. The buildings are situated around large common areas and there are parks, playgrounds and community ​centres​ in the area. Supermarkets and a subway station are​ also​ close by.

"This picture shows that all together can live in peace in this place. As you can see, a lot of people with different colors and backgrounds were all born here, or most of them. They also say I'm a German person not Afghani or Moroccan."
 
– Samim, Lenzsiedlung resident

"I think a lot of people have bad memories about Lenzsiedlung because in the past it was very very hard here. The criminal rate was higher. A lot of people who live here went into prison or were pushed out from Germany. But now it's like a family here."
 
– Samim, Lenzsiedlung resident

Director of the club Lenzsiedlung Ralf Helling says the crime rate in the estate was much higher in the past. However, due to recent social activities and youth events at the community centre, the neighbourhood has become a friendlier and safer place to live.

The high-rise residences in Lenzsiedlung are
classified as affordable housing. But the local government of Hamburg plans to end rent control in 2017. Many residents fear rents will eventually rise and they will subsequently have to move out.
