Coworking in Düsseldorf

© Amazing Capitals / DeiaGreg

Business centres and serviced offices were available in Düsseldorf long before coworking became a buzzword for sharing professional spaces. Today, entrepreneurs, solopreneurs and startups have the option of over sixty various locations, styles and services to choose from, 

Early local organisations such as ABD or international players such as Regus led the way with later additions following. Find shiny and modern, traditional and cosy to the more recent, the opportunities to interact and grow are enormous.

Coworking providers may also offer more interactive concepts with added benefits such a gym, shower, recreational facilities, yoga, a restaurant, power nap or chill zones. Try Treibhaus, for instance.

Minimum rental periods vary between one one or two hours, a day or one to three months.

Breaking Down Barriers

Consider the parents of young children, especially those arriving from abroad. A highly structured and regulated Germany leaves expat parents especially at a loss. Even in today’s society, normally one parent has been relocated and the other, more often than not, it is the mother who has to cope alone.

Add the chaotic circumstances surrounding kindergarden spaces and options for care of even younger family members. The legal right to place a child in kindergarden is often misleading and private childcare givers are understandably more interested in calculable and predictable commitments.

Expats don’t always fit the mould and arrive long after the dice have been rolled. Being a parent can thus restrict the ability of women to deal with everyday necessities. They may wish to learn the language, have their professional qualifications recognised and also work. This all takes time and flexibility.

Kiwifalter facilitates flexible support for expat parents and their young loved ones. Their concept helps combine family and work more effectively. From coworking spaces with flexible childcare to vacation camps and children’s birthday parties, services are designed to relieve everyday pressures. Their unique family hub also includes a coffee bar.

And more. Through the necessity for more flexible solutions beyond corporate offices, home office or remote working, larger companies in Düsseldorf find themselves with a periodical  requirement for additional space too. Kiwifalter can help.

For general assistance in finding a coworking space, the economic development office of the city of Düsseldorf offers a PDF download with an overview of options.
