The civic association Bürgerverein Hansaviertel e.V. was founded in 2004. With the motto “Living heritage – living monument”, we are committed to the preservation and upkeep of Germany’s largest and – along with the Werkbundsiedlung of 1927 at the Weissenhof in Stuttgart – most important building exhibition.
The activities of the association are many and varied. With our current 165 members (as at: summer 2018), we have, among other things, repaired orientation maps and fought for the preservation of the Hansabibliothek (public library).
In our infoshop “Verein & Wein” visitors will find useful information about our district.
Even though the focus of the Bürgerverein Hansaviertel e.V. is on the architecture of Interbau 57, working groups do research on, and publish information about, the (first) Hansaviertel, which existed between 1895 and 1943.
In addition to doing research into the buildings of the earlier Hansaviertel and its prominent residents, we researched the names of 1030 Jewish neighbors around Hansaplatz who were deported. “The Window of Remembrance” at the south exit of the underground station reminds us of them today.
Store and Infoshop “Verein & Wein”
Since 19 May 2008 the civic association has been located in the wine shop at Hansaplatz with books about the architecture and history of the Hansaviertel, as well as postcards and DVDs. You can also see a selection of what we have to offer in our shop on the website.
Wine connoisseurs will find over 300 different wines, especially from Germany, Spain, France and Italy. Various spirits and fine foods like chocolate, olive oil, pasta and pesto and other delicacies complete the offer.
The shop is open from Monday to Friday 12.00 to 20.00 and Saturday 10.00 to 14.00.
Mr. Lüßling is there to give advice with regard to wine and to answer questions from people interested in the architecture of the area. There is further information on the wine shop’s website.
