Space to play – Auf die Plätze 2023

The “Auf die Plätze” initiative created by the three inner-city Hamburg churches St. Petri, St. Katharinen, and St. Jacobi is set to continue in 2023. Seating will be provided in the forecourts and spaces around the churches for those looking for a place to spend a moment away from the commercial hustle and bustle.

The St. Jacobi church forecourt displays new and playful objects made from recycled construction materials, left over floorboards, and advertising banners by Beate Kapfenberger and Martha Starke from the “morgen.” Agency.  They work together with a range of social agencies to reclaim and recycle materials and give them a second lease on life. Moreover, there are plants to brighten up the spaces.
