Germany’s notoriously “underground” capital is a popular destination for entrepreneurs - especially the tech and digitally inclined - given its cheap cost of living, a young global population, and active start-up ecosystem. With regular events and meet-ups organized by the local community, it’s easy to get out and network, while getting a taste of the city.
Berlin’s complicated past, tangible in every inch of its more historical tourist districts, contrasts starkly against the modern, alternative vibe of its more local neighbourhoods. Walking down the cobbled alleys of Kreuzberg, or leaning against a dark bar in Mitte, you almost feel like you’ve been thrown into the rebellious, grungy vibe of a 60s San Francisco, except the beer is probably better.
Berlin is also one of the most developed cities in Europe for co-working spaces - many cafes and other venues offer great deals on food, coffee, and free WiFi - a boon to any young professional on the go. A happening music scene, delicious food, and the opportunity to immerse yourself in an interesting potpourri of cultures from around the world, complete the entrepreneur’s ticket to this burgeoning force on the EU start-up scene.
