In December of last year, we had the chance to visit the beautiful and huge Diamond Way Buddhist Center in Hamburg, Germany.
The Buddhist Center Hamburg is the most-visited center in Germany.
Seminars, events, daily meditation after work, as well as collaboration
with schools make this project the central venue for Buddhism in
Hamburg. With the active and financial help of numerous people
throughout Europe and with support from the city, an old ship carpentry
was purchased and reconstructed in 1998. A meditation hall, library,
book shop, café, lecture halls and living areas are all located on the
1,700 sqm property. The Hamburg Buddhist Center is owned by the Diamond
Way Buddhism Foundation.
