1973 - 2023: 50 years of the Gropiusstadt community center

In April 1973, the foundation stone for the Gropiusstadt community center was laid in Neukölln. District councilor Gertrud Junge, who also gave the district library its name, campaigned for Gropiusstadt to have a center for culture, leisure and community. For 50 years, the community center has always been happy to welcome all interested people.

For the 50th birthday there is a colorful birthday program for young and old.
