NDR’s Hamburg Journal, a German television show airing in the city of Hamburg, has been running a series about all the different neighborhoods in Hamburg (with an award winning complementary series printed in the newspaper Hamburger Abendblatt).

When they were recording the segment about Klostertor, a neighborhood that practically doesn’t exist anymore as it’s been eaten up by other developments around it, they instead discovered the thriving quarter of Münzviertel (right behind the main train station) and my father, Günter Westphal, an artist and activist, who has been instrumental in reviving the neighborhood and making it attractive to artists and students and people in general.

Of course, the segment is in German; but even if you don’t speak it, you might enjoy seeing this lively corner of Hamburg, Germany.
