In the middle of Berlin.

At the center
of politics.

Without question, Berlin is in a state of constant change. More than 25 years after the reunification, the city is the political epicenter of Germany. Anyone who wants to get things done in business and politics comes here. And the government district is where it all happens. Just a stone’s throw away from cube berlin.
 

At the center
of business.

As an economic and intellectual engine, the city is offering important new perspectives and has become Europe’s leading startup hub: no city in Europe is currently growing faster than Berlin. This is especially visible in the Europacity area. Today it is already the new hotspot for offices and hotels in the city, and soon it will be home to over 3,500 residents. And in the middle of it all is cube berlin.

At the center
of culture.

Berlin was already a world-renowned cultural center in the Golden Twenties. This is not just a myth of the past, but reality today, as reflected by some 440 galleries and over 180 museums throughout the city. One of the leading institutions for contemporary art is the Hamburger Bahnhof, within sight of cube berlin.
