Hi there Munich, hier ist Spaces

It’s true that Berlin knows how to big itself up – and with good reason. But let’s forget about ‘currywurst’ and techno music for a moment, because that’s not all Germany’s got to offer. Head on down to Bavaria and the state capital of München, and you’ll discover a city that’s quietly rocking out to its own tune.

Due to the plethora of multinational companies located here, it’s a well-heeled kind of town – and one of the most diverse to boot. So, we thought it is high time to put our stamp on flexible working in Munich with a brand-new location: say hi to Spaces Werksviertel.

Wilkommen to a better way of working

Located in the rejuvenated Berg am Laim district, Spaces Werksviertel occupies two floors of a reclaimed and rather handsome red-brick building in the middle of a busy neighbourhood – it’s the kind of place that offers all the good things you’d expect to find in a former industrial centre. From eating and drinking (Café LOUKA and Restaurante Portugal are worth checking out) to gig-going and rock-climbing (the TonHalle München event space and Boulderwelt München are just five minutes away), there’s plenty to  attract and distract when work’s done for the day. And getting around is a breeze thanks to the main München Ost train, light rail and subway station on the doorstep.

As far as new office space in Munich goes, Spaces Werksviertel has it licked. Private offices are there for when you need to concentrate, and lounge space is there for when you want to collaborate. There’s super-fast Wi-Fi throughout the building, so you can stay connected wherever you are and whatever working mode you find yourself in. Admin support is fully comprehensive, with the option of a virtual office (think call-taking and mail-handling, plus an impressive address for your company website), and the on-site café makes a mean barista-brewed coffee for caffeine hits. All things considered, it’s just a better way to work.

Explore medieval Munich

For anyone keen to get inside the real Germany, Munich is a great place to start. This is the home of BMW, after all, whose iconic tower headquarters has been a protected historic building since 1999. There are truly ancient things here too, and Marienplatz in the heart of the Old Town makes for a great starting point from which to explore medieval Munich with its abundance of churches, palaces and state buildings. Of course, no visit to Munich is complete without a stop at the Hofbräuhaus beer hall, which first slaked the thirst of Bavarians way back in 1589.

Beer is a big part of the culture here, and the beer garden in the famed English Garden is a sight to behold on a summer’s day. Here you’ll find locals of all stripes cooling down with a stein or two of the nation’s best brews. Another sight you might not be expecting is a cheeky one: Munich is also the home of FKK, or Freikörperkultur (free body culture), so don’t be surprised if there’s a little more flesh on show in some parts of the park than you’re used to (and feel free to join in, we won’t judge you).

why it’s wunderbar

Anyway, let’s get back to one of the more exciting flexible office space openings in Munich for a minute. Like the rest of Europe, coworking in Germany has taken off as the preferred working method, and it’s not hard to see why: shorter commutes, more stimulation, and an all-round better work/life balance all help. Being your own boss and managing the day your way has been proven to increase productivity too. With the launch of Spaces Werksviertel, we’re here to help you make it happen – and if that happen, er, happens to be in a gorgeous light-filled location crammed with designer furniture and surrounded by likeminded people, then so much the better. Wunderbar!
