Hot-Spot on the pulse of the times.

When you say Berlin, what you really mean is Berlin-Kreuzberg: no other district in the city has more to offer and no other neighbourhood is attracting so many companies and such a talented workforce. The historic attractions from the various periods combine with modern flagship stores, smaller branded outlets, an exciting restaurant scene and one of the most popular workspaces in the world to make the location a magnet for innovators from many different countries. Berlin-Kreuzberg is where the digital elite come to meet. The question is not “where have you come from?” but “where do you want to get to?”.

Right in the centre of Berlin

At the digital focal point of Europe. At the heart of life.

Berlin is the place with all the answers to today’s digital questions - the kind of questions not yet being asked in other places. There are over 40,000 new company formations every year in Europe’s start-up capital. 270,000 new jobs are expected to be created in the period up to 2030 by the digitalisation of Berlin’s economy alone. It comes as no surprise that Berlin is one of the world’s Top 10 smart cities.

No future without history.

At the end of the 19th Century, the southern area of Berlin-Friedrichstadt developed into the historic newspaper district, where the industrialisation process brought over 500 companies in the graphics, printing and publishing sectors to the neighbourhood. At the turn of the 20th Century, this had become the world’s largest newspaper quarter and in 1919 was one of the major scenes of the Spartacist uprising.

During the Second World War, the historic district was severely damaged by a wartime bombing raid on 3rd February 1945. The landscape also changed for ever with the construction of the Berlin wall. The area gained significant public attention when Axel Springer relocated his company headquarters from Hamburg to Berlin in 1967. In 1961, the construction site was the exit location of an escape tunnel used by Rudolf Müller and other escapees with the full knowledge of the company.

The digital age has seen the removal of many barriers. Disciplines are ever-changing and flexibility is now more important than ever. With the relocation of Axel Springer into its new company headquarters nearby, the historic complex has become a new hotspot for innovative working: X8.Berlin is opening up new perspectives in the heart of Europe’s start-up capital. This is the interface of digital spearheads in a transparent location unique in its contemporary working environment and quality of life.

X8.Berlin is totally unique.
