The Best Coworking Spaces In Berlin

In Berlin – not only the capital of Germany but also of freelancing – it’s actually really hard not to stumble upon some kind of coworking space in your daily life. There are so many options that it might seem a bit overwhelming at times. There’s the sofa at home (added bonus you can stay in your pjs), the sunny café around the corner and of course the membership working with like-minded people. Digital nomad, freelancer, self-employed – whatever you want to call it, chances are that you are looking for a place where you can work on your own, but socialize and synergize with like-minded people.

Depending on what exactly you are looking for it may be more about the space for you, or maybe more about the people. So while you have the choice, make sure you really find the spot that’s all you. Where you feel comfortable and get your stuff  done at the same time. If you’re anything like me you may want to switch it up every now and then to get some variety into your week. If you haven’t found your hotspots yet, read on after the jump to see our list of recommended options.

Betahaus

Undebatably one of the larger coworking spaces in town, if not THE largest. Offering over 1500 square meters Betahaus can house about 200 co-workers in the space. And more than that, there is plenty of space for small or big workshops and meetings. Of course there’s a cafe, too. So if you want to check out the space first and see if the vibe fits you, why don’t you just try the cafe for a day or two. No membership needed to use this social space, and the wifi is obviously enabled. Memberships are pretty flexible and start at 15 € per day, or 89 € for a monthly contract.

St. Oberholz

With several locations across town, the one at Rosenthaler Platz is the largest Café and Co-Working Location in Mitte. Virtual Offices starting at 79 € and a monthly rate of 159€, which includes fancy extras like a St. Oberholz coffee blend and tea flat and a podcast sound studio.

Unicorn.Berlin

Unicorn is a relatively new kid on the block. It’s a small space with no more than 15 permanent desks (rentable for anything from half day to monthly) but also has a no-membership cafe area serving fresh squeezes juices, vegan light food options and of course coffee. You can read a bit more about their cosy atmosphere on Daily Bread. Since 2016 there is also a new and bigger space further up the same street at Brunnenviertel.

Kaos

This huge co-working space located in an old warehouse in Oberschöneweide offers the perfect area for creatives that need more than an office with a desk. The bulding provides a great space for workshops, galleries, exhibitions and production – perfect for painters, designer, photographers and handy crafters to spread their wings and find some peace on the Berlin outskirts, located directly on the Spree.

Blogfabrik

Blogfabrik is a brand new coworking space for content creators of all kinds including bloggers, youtubers, instagramers, photographers, videographers, magazines and journalists. Next to its big office space with permanent offices, temporary work places, big kitchen and conference room there is also a big event space including a professional photo studio. To be working at Blogfabrik you actually don’t have to pay rent, you pay your work space with articles for Dailybread a new online magazine from content creators for content creators. Pretty good deal, no? iHeartBerlin is currently working at Blogfabrik sharing a nice office with our colleague Sara from FindingBerlin.

Mindspace

The brand new Mindspace Berlin is the Soho House of co-working spaces. Just opened in the beginning of April the Berlin office is already the third location of this project which comes originally from Tel Aviv. Its location inside the fancy shopping mall The Q at Friedrichstraße already suggests a quite design-heavy and luxurious kind of space which probably attracts let’s say “more successful” freelancers and young businesses, but also big international companies. As part of their service you will not only get a highly equipped work place but also networking events, free rental bikes and rebates in many external services.

    I recently had a small event at Roof Up in Schoneberg. The space is large, light and has plenty of outdoor work space on the roof for those nice warm days. The staff is super friendly and helpful and the location is near transit, bars and good restaurants too. Check it out!

  3. Fanette Says:

    We actually are opening a coworking soon, and will be hosting events too. You can subscribe to the newsletter on bisberlin.de and will be notified when the website – and by extension, the coworking – is open !

    Co-up http://co-up.de/ in Kreutzberg (right near Kottbusser Tor UBahn) is really wonderful too. They do a LOT for the Berlin community.

    Including this brilliant thing… “To help close the gender/race gap in IT, we’d like to support people in underrepresented groups in tech by offering a number of discounted memberships for women, POC, queer/trans people, & people affected by classism.” — http://co-up.de/pricing.html

  5. Holger Says:

    Take a look at http://www.houseofclouds.de/ inexpensive, short contract periods, an easy and friendly atmosphere

    I’m working now at Enklave (http://www.enklave.de)! It’s a great coworkingspace in Neukölln, desks are good, people are nice and always fresh baked cookies :) . It’s in contrast to the most coworkingspaces a real community. They are doing a community-lunch on monday where a coworker cooks for everybody, there is a group who are going for a run on wednesday and they have a beertasting every fridayafternoon so you can get to know the other coworkers.

    The best venue for meetings, workshops and offsides up to 15 people is Guice, the creative space in the Zionskirchstr.63, next to the Rosenthaler Platz.
    You have the hole space on your own for small money.Really nice hosts and great located in the heart of Berlin..

    I work over at Noize Fabrik in Alt-Treptow/Neukölln. They have a large co-working space dedicated to people in the audio industry. Because of this, they have 3 music studios perfect for people like myself who do audio-book voice overs and need both a treated room and a productive place to work.

    Roughly the same price for co-working per month than all the other co-working space in the area (if not a little cheaper…!)

    My favourite coworking space was “Pulsraum” at Kottbusser Damm (Neukölln, http://coworking.pulsraum.de). But there are heaps of new nice places too. I think it depends on the area and the crowd, where its best to join. I don’t like to travel 50 min to work :-)

  11. Jannis Says:

    My favorite co-working space is Thinkfarm Berlin. It’s a self-organized space for ecological or social businesses, start-ups, researchers and NGOs. And it’s actually having some free desks at the moment. So check it out: https://berlin.thinkfarm.de

  12. Ori Says:

    I had a very negative experience with Enklave. For some reason they are treating members very bad, being clueless with their deposits and generally displaying a very strange behavior when it comes to other people’s money. Think twice before you go there.
