Co-working in Überseestadt

Success stories
All the options at a glance

Co-working spaces are very much in vogue. Especially in large cities, more and more people are renting space in modern office communities - for hours, days or months. We take a look at the co-working spaces in Überseestadt and answer key questions: How much is the rent? What do I get in return? And of course: Where do I get my coffee?

Nearly as exciting as moving into your first flat: many people in the early stages of building a business dream of having their own office space at last. But investing in business premises involves considerable financial risk – particularly at the start, when it's still not clear whether your business idea will actually take off. 'Co-working spaces' where self-employed people and start-ups can share a workplace are therefore a popular alternative. They work in a similar way to shared flats, but with one killer advantage: there's no need to fight about who does the cleaning. The cleaning costs are generally included in the rent, along with a desk, chair, and internet access. Co-workers also have the opportunity to exchange ideas and information and work together on projects.

More and more people are discovering these advantages – including in Bremen's Überseestadt. All the co-working spaces in this district at a glance:
