Meetups in Berlin

Are there regular meetups for Nomads in Berlin? I will be spending a month in Berlin and would like to meet and get to know the community. I had a great experience in Ubud, Bali (meetups, workshops, idea exchanges etc) and looking for something similar in Berlin. Any thoughts and ideas?

Thank you,
Inna

Hi Inna,

There are many meetups, workshops, and events for nomads in Berlin. Also, check the coworking spaces when you are here. Reach out and we can meet for an exchange, if you like.

Cheers,
Gerhard

Thank you, Gerhard. I am staying in Mitte area, any coworking spaces you would recommend in the area. I noticed that Betahaus has a good program and community, but it might be a bit far for me, any others?

Don’t worry, it is all very accessible and public transport is great. Betahaus is just off the U8 subway stop “Moritzplatz”.

In Mitte, you have the well-known St. Oberholz, a café with adjacent coworking space right at Rosentalerplatz. A few weeks ago, they opened a second space 5 min away. If you prefer it a bit quieter, across the street of St. Oberholz is Fabisch/Circus Cafe.

Close to Friedrichstraße is the “Basecamp”, a cafe/coworking space from Telefonica. You can just show up and get a coffee and work. There are also more upscale coworking spaces which usually require a monthly membership, There’s WeWork at Potsadamer Platz and a new one at Hackescher Markt. There’s Mindspace close to “Stadtmitte”. Those are the ones I visited so far, you’ll easily find more.

This is great! Thank you for all this info.

I find most of the meetups on https://meetup.com, especially tech-related.

The advantage of the betahaus is though, that the café is free of charge (you can rent a quiet place upstairs).

The weather is not really good anymore, but sometimes it’s cheaper to get around with the scooters than public transportation ( https://www.emio-sharing.de / https://www.joincoup.com/ )
