about us

Kulturhaus Dehnhaide e.V.

The social cultural center Kulturhaus Dehnhaide e.V., was founded in 1988 to fight against political decisions we didn’t agree with in the district of Barmbek Süd (south)
Barmbek is traditionally a workers district, now developing quickly into a dynamic part of Hamburg. Located in the middle of Barmbek Süd, the district today has a mixed population: seniors, young families, children, teens, refugees, people of all nations and income.

Our center is a cultural meeting point in the area with more than 20.000 visitors a year. It offers concerts, cinema, exhibitions, lectures, multimedia and theater to inhabitants. In January 2010, we moved into Barmbek°Basch, a community center with seven different organizations: public library, family education centers, church, offices and restaurant, all under one roof.

This social cultural center is a creative place of cultural work with a strong bond between the populations and an excellent network in the district and the city.

We offer different cultural projects like:
