Have you ever met someone that has visited Berlin and didn’t enjoy it? Well, us neither.

That’s because there is something for everyone in Berlin. From tourists to the hippest of hipsters, business people, engineering geeks, sports fans, religious pilgrims. It’s a city that has it all.

Its unique and cool energy will rub off on you, your events, and your guests. Ah, your guests. They’ll be so excited to receive the invite when they find out where they’re going!

This article is a humble introduction to the world of corporate events in Berlin. You’ll leave with more wonder, more ideas, and more inspiration than when you started. But at least you’ll know one thing; it has to be Berlin.

Friedrichshain 

If you want to throw an event with an alternative and edgy theme, Friedrichshain could be the place for you.

Historically, it has been the beginning, middle and end of Berlin’s counter-culture movements.

Even today, it’s the home of all things strange, alternative and cool. Like the world-famous techno club Berghain.

Kreuzberg

Kreuzberg was once a battleground between West Berlin Punks and the authority. It was the sight of huge anti squats such as Kopi and SO36, which are now nightclubs despite their rebellious past.

Today, Kreuzberg is still a place for non-conformists. But it embraces being part of society now. As one of the centres for hipsters, it’s also a booming start-up and digital media scene.

This means it’s a great place for your like-minded company to visit and thrive in during a glorious working holiday.

While you’re there, make sure to dive into the fantastic bar scene that stays open late to later. And if you’re out drinking, you might as well enjoy the famous fast food scene too! Because what’s a trip to Berlin without a döner kebab?

Graefekiez

You’ll find Grasefekiez within Kreuzberg. It deserves a special mention for being Berlin’s tech centre.

Its particular niche is its blockchain scene. This is evident in some of its bars, where bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are accepted as payment.

Despite its futuristic credentials, it’s actually a very laid back part of town. An Art Nouveau aesthetic and lively music culture are very welcome companions.

Neukölln

Do you dream of hosting an event that is the pinnacle of cosmopolitan life? Well, dreams are for sleep. But reality is a place called earth, and the height of cosmopolitanism is Neukölln.

It’s an area that many of Berlin’s artists and immigrants call home. You could choose to host your next product launch or creative workshop in one of the many independent galleries. Or shortlist one of the great bars and cafes for an afterwork or private dining experience.

Now what could be more cosmopolitan than this chic and spacious meeting room? It’s impossibly bright, and we love it.

The huge windows are gems. The leather sofas and precious rugs offer just enough nuance. And the plant life adds that human touch, perfect for a laid back and stylish meeting for you and your guests.

 

Schillerkiez 

On Neukölln’s western border, you’ll find the micro-kiez (micro neighbourhood) of Schillerkiez.

It’s on the verge of being gentrified, but it’s an area that retains a sense of authenticity. Impress your guests by going there before it gets too popular. But you better act quickly.

There are lots of really nice kneipes, which are traditional German pubs. You’re also on the doorstep of the Tempelhofer Feld, an abandoned airport. It’s now a community garden.

Fashion-themed Trendy Hotel

It makes sense that a city so dedicated to fashion would have a trendy, fashioned-themed hotel.

Picking a place to stay on corporate trips is too often overlooked. And we’re here to say enough is enough. You deserve to stay at this flamboyant and over the top hotel!

The dulcet tones and the bold theme is what Schillerkiez is all about and is absolutely worth your attention.

Treptow 

Treptow is noisy Neukölln’s quiet little neighbour. It is teeming with nature and is home to both Planterwald and Treptower Park.

But it’s not all peace and love. If you want something exciting, they’ve got some fascinating war memorials and a booming club scene.

New York designer Karim Rashid was given a clear mandate to go big or go home. And what we have is just that; an avant-garde, futuristic hotel right in the heart of Treptow.

Fearless pink hues are proudly on show. You have river views, underfloor heating, and Nespresso machines. They even have in-house music studios!

Choosing here will make your hotel an integral part of your event plan.

 

Mitte

Berlin has several centres or hubs. But Mitte is the centre of the centre, the one centre to rule them all.

It’s the area most associated with tourism. But don’t for a second think that it’s jaded or overdone. Tourists frequent Mitte for good reasons. All the most prominent sights are here, like the Berlin tower and the Brandenburg Gate.

It goes without saying, but practically it’s logical to host your events in the city centre. And having the most impressive sights of the city on hand is just a lovely perk.

Wedding

Psst. Wedding is projected to be the next big place for artists and creatives. So you’re in the know already.

It’s a quiet area, with lots of secrets waiting to be discovered. You and your guests could be some of the last to see it with fresh eyes before it’s known to the world.

So if you want an event away from the city’s noise and cynicism, why not book in Wedding?

While you’re there, the underground museum could be a good plan? It’s a sprawling underground history tour that is a rare opportunity.
