Of course we hope that you will truly enjoy your stay in Berlin. But sometimes work has to be done too. For those of you who want to combine your visit to Berlin with a remote office, we have put together a list of 11 coworking spaces and laptop cafés. We made sure that you can rent a space by the hour or day and that you don't have to sign up for a membership. Of course, networking is still possible.
Tip 1: St. Oberholz - coworking space in Berlin with tradition
Founded in 2005, St. Oberholz is the oldest coworking space in Berlin. Here you can work on the lively Rosenthaler Platz in the middle of Berlin's hip start-up scene. Caffeine and healthy snacks provide energy. In addition to seats directly in the café, St. Oberholz on Rosenthaler Platz has work desks and conference rooms upstairs. Due to Corona, daily and hourly tickets have been suspended for the time being. Monthly memberships are of course also available, but the waiting list is long at the moment. You can just drop in and work comfortably in the café.
Incidentally, the combination of good coffee and beautiful premises works so well that the St. Oberholz concept now exists at eleven locations in Berlin and at one in Potsdam-Babelsberg. In addition to the traditional location at Rosi, you can also use two other locations around Torstrasse in Mitte: at Zehdenicker Str. 1 and at Torstrasse 49, directly at Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. There you will be served high-speed WiFi and the in-house coffee from the Kreuzberg roastery Bonanza. All other locations are Flex Office Spaces, where you can rent a space on a long-term basis.
Where: Rosenthaler Str. 72A, Mitte, Zehdenicker Straße 1, Kastanienalle 84, Torstraße 49, Mitte and other locations all over Berlin.
When: Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. - 7 p.m., Saturday & Sunday, 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Tip 2: Betahaus - coworking in Berlin and worldwide
Im Betahaus stehen Austausch und Gemeinschaft im Vordergrund. Beim Brunch, bei Abendveranstaltungen, im Community Garten oder auf der Dachterrasse könnt ihr mit Gleichgesinnten plaudern und vielleicht sogar Kollaborateure finden. Ihr wählt zwischen Tagestickets oder mietet euch für einen Monat lang ein. Gäste sind im Café willkommen. Und auch euren vierbeinigen Freund dürft ihr mal auf einen Besuch vorbeibringen. Ein tolles Angebot für digitale Nomaden sind die vielen Partner Spaces überall auf der Welt.

The perfect springboard for a career in Berlin's start-up scene. From time to time there are open community events and the Factory Kitchen is also open for visitors.

If you are planning a longer stay in Berlin, you can consider whether a monthly membership is worthwhile for you.
