the new WERK1 Coliving

To meet the needs of the fast-growing tech startup scene in Munich, WERK1 expanded its space: WERK1.4 features additional startup offices, new coworking spaces, and larger scaleup offices starting. We also opened the first coliving concept for the Munich startup scene.

Startups can apply for apartments and offer their employees and guests a temporary place to stay for one to six months. All Coliving residents can take advantage of WERK1’s events, coworking, and the rest of the community offerings, making it easy to immerse themselves in Munich’s startup ecosystem. With this all-round package, we offer you the optimal start in the Munich startup scene!

Derived from co-working, where freelancers and start-ups share workspaces, co-living transfers the idea of community to the living area. The “Co” stands for community, which is at the heart of this modern form of living. The residents not only share living space, but also interests and spirit.

Thanks to the combination of coworking spaces, office space for digital start-ups, a café, event and meeting spaces and a variety of events, WERK1 offers the residents of Coliving the perfect connection to a large, dynamic community of entrepreneurs, freelancers and visionaries.
