The Best Co-Working Spaces in Berlin

Eli McGarvie

Apart from being home to some of the best nightlife, currywurst stands, and artistic displays for all ages, the German capital continues to shine a light on startup culture. According to Startup Heat Map, Berlin is the second-best entrepreneurial city in Europe (just behind London), as ventures in Berlin have raised €6.6B on average per year (2020–22), and the city currently ranks as the #1 place entrepreneurs want to move to.

The popularity of coworking spaces may be attributed to their attractive combination of modern conveniences and the freedom to choose one's own schedule. Berlin's co-working spaces provide the ideal blend of creativity, community, and cultural variety for anybody from startup founders and digital nomads to seasoned professionals looking for a shared office.

How much do co-working spaces in Berlin cost in 2023?

Prices vary depending on a couple of factors, but overall, the prices start at hourly passes that cost €4 and run up to €500 (or more) monthly for private offices. It all depends on the amenities, level of service, and overall membership packages. Since the average salary in Germany for a software developer is €3,200 per month after tax (an onerous 42%), the figures for renting a coworking space seem like a sensible investment.

Tips on choosing the right coworking space for you

We get it: Picking between many other options can be somewhat overwhelming. Don’t worry, we got you. Here are some key factors to consider before making the final decision. 

1. Office atmosphere

When choosing a coworking space, lighting, temperature, and noise are important because they affect how well you can work and how comfortable you feel. Make sure to visit the place before checking if these elements align with your expectations and needs. You know what they say about Instagram pictures…

2. Amenities

Access to reliable Wi-Fi, modern office equipment, and additional facilities like meeting rooms and charging stations ensures that members can work efficiently and comfortably. It seems that real estate value impacts a coworking’s spaces facilities, and Berlin’s spaces seem to shrug off gym and kitchen options, favouring being near the Kreuzberg club sector instead. It’s absolutely understandable and one of the points you should consider if you still haven’t moved here. Other cities do offer these amenities quite frequently.

3. Location

When Western tourists say that every European city is small and walkable, they forget about Berlin. The German capital city is gigantic, and newcomers often tour the city in uncalled-for circles when they hop onto the S-Bahn and are clueless about where to hop off. Thus, especially for Berlin, checking out the coworking space location is a big deal. Easy access and convenience mean less hassle getting there, giving you more time for work and connecting with cool people in the area.

Top co-working spaces in Berlin in 2023

Find the coworking space that best suits your needs in the following list. Please note that the prices and amenities shown below are estimates and are subject to change at any time. The list follows no specific order or ranking. 

1. Office Club Berlin Prenzlauer Berg

Location: Pappelallee 78/79, Berlin 

Prices: Memberships range from €19.90 monthly up to €599 per month.

The Office Club co-working spaces can be described with one word: flexible. The place’s name might sound dull and quite unlike Berlin, but workers seem to call out the coffee for being fantastical, which entirely makes up for the uninspired moniker.

Workers praise the place as relatively quiet, but reviews regarding the internet’s stability are mixed. One issue brought up frequently is the different options for subscription and renewal policies. Many users are not sure enough about what they purchased in the first place. Some have claimed being kicked out and finding out they didn’t get 24/7 access, while other people explain that they thought they had held out from renewing, only to find the charge on their credit card statements. So keep an eye out for what you’re buying — and count on the Office’s staff, which seems to respond timely to each inquiry.

2. KAOS 

Location: Wilhelminenhofstraße 92, Berlin
