Working As A Digital Nomad In Berlin

It’s been really interesting learning about a few different places to work in Berlin, so I thought I would take the time to share them with you.

We’ve been exploring the city a lot- I even went on the longest walk of my life– so we’ve found some interesting places.

It seems like there are hundreds of coworking spaces here- plus thousands of cafes (though I’d say that Wifi provision, called WLAN here, is a little mixed) but I just wanted to give you a glimpse into some of the places that I’ve been to.

Here is the desk I used for a day at the workspace in central Berlin. Seemingly typically for Berlin it is in a huge, repurposed old building.

Popped into the brilliant @theworkspaceberlin – great space to work. Appreciated the warm welcome, the big windows and the #nespresso !

I tried two Regus Business lounges, which I often had to myself- note the cool pods:

Really loving this business centre in Berlin near Potsdamer Platz – individual pods are really cozy!

One of them had this view, which wasn’t too shabby!

I’ve also tried some more random places, including:

At a coffee roasters (which I found after an afternoon of already drinking coffee somewhere else)

In a market hall in the area we were living in..

And even sitting on a bench by the canal – the impending rain put an end to that one!

I’ve given two talks, in my role as The Influence Expert.

The first one was at the workspace for a digital nomad meetup and the second, at betahaus for a breakfast event. At both I emphasized the difference that growing your influence can make to the impact that you have on the world (more details here if you’re interested).

If you type ‘coworking spaces berlin’ you get a lot of results! Here is one list of the ‘best coworking spaces in Berlin’ that we have used (for example, Nisha has worked from Fritz 46 and Co.up).

I would certainly recommend Berlin as a place for digital nomads to come to. It’s pretty hard to compare to Las Palmas as the two places are so different. I still feel that I’ve got a lot to discover and interesting people to meet…
