You don't feel like commuting, but a home office puts the ceiling on your head? Are you self-employed but looking for exchange? You want to live sustainably, not drive every day and have more time for leisure and family? Then the campus areas spread across the region or the coworking spaces in Münsterland might be something for you.
There you can exchange ideas with like-minded people, save yourself the hassle of working at home or commuting and - who knows: maybe you'll even come up with exciting new ideas in dialogue with the other creative minds on site! In most places in Münsterland you will not only find office space, but also other exciting events and networking opportunities.
In Münster, for example, there is an exciting atmosphere at the Digital Hub münsterLAND. The Digital Hub brings potential founders together with companies, universities and institutions. Start-ups, corporates and techies who implement digital projects or try out and test new digital business models are particularly sought after. Meanwhile, the hub satellites make the services of the Digital Hub available in a decentralised manner in Münsterland. You can find more information about the satellites below.
The workspace of the Digital Hub münsterLand is located in the middle of the harbour in Münster, a top business address in the region with a very special flair. In addition, Münster's harbour district offers a wide range of restaurants, bars, pubs and leisure facilities. The creative environment has also attracted many technology companies. That's why Harbourside has also set up shop there: another coworking space that not only offers you an office desk, but also supports you at events. Incidentally, the coworking space Watermark is also located in the same place, where a wide variety of professions and industries work together.
Münster also has other interesting offers: For example, the Grünfärberei on Dahlweg, where great value is placed on sustainability and naturalness (the electricity is produced on the farm itself!). In the dreiraum, on the other hand, people who feel at home in the areas of movement and therapy and want to work as a network find space to develop. You can also rent a fully equipped office at Volt Communications GmbHin Bült.
And the oldest coworking space in Münster, by its own account, is Pi28, which was founded in 2010 and invites you to work together and exchange ideas on 125 square metres directly on Prinzipalmarkt.
You can find flexible offices close to home in many other places in Münsterland. In the district of Coesfeld, for example, you have several opportunities to cowork: at the digitalCampus.Nordkirchen, at the INCA Technology Centre in Ascheberg, at flamschen² coworking in Coesfeld and at dülmen.works as an offer from ConIT solutions Beratungs GmbH. And then there is also CoCoWo, a space operated by WESLINK GmbH in Coesfeld.
In any case, the digitalCampus is an exciting place for innovation. With it, the digitalCampus.Nordkirchen e.V. association supports the start-up scene with an exclusive network, interesting events and a creative location. Learn more in the video.
Through the model project Smarte.Land.Regionen, the district of Coesfeld wants to develop digital services for the target group of commuters and other mobile workers. Together with companies, more mobile working and coworking is to be made possible and new sustainable and digitally supported work cultures are to be established. To this end, the district received a funding certificate for almost one million euros from the federal government in 2021. This makes the Coesfeld district one of seven model regions of the Smarte.Land.Regionen project in Germany.
The d.velop campus in Gescher with its hub satellite also offers you modern workplaces and an innovative environment for your ideas. The d.velop AG - software manufacturer with a success story of almost 30 years - has created a digital infrastructure on 50,000 square metres of space. If you feel like it, you can also go straight to the Digital Café in the Hub-Satellite. Exciting networking events, lectures and conferences are held there regularly.
The Shopware Campus in Schöppingen also invites you to modern work in an idyllic location. The software company develops e-commerce solutions. The area extends over three buildings. The campus impresses with its modern architectural style, outdoor facilities with a beach, canteen, cosy lounge and an unmistakable view of the Münsterland park landscape. A few kilometres away, the Steps Hub of STEPS GmbH in Gronau invites you to work in comfort - just a few minutes' walk from the city centre and the rock'n'pop museum.
A perfect home for freelancers, start-ups, creatives and small businesses is also directly in Stadtlohn: there, cw+ invites you to work together in a historic villa. And in the heart of Bocholt, too, it has recently become possible to work together: at "Etage3" on Neutorplatz and at tagwerk coworing & café.
Free offices, meeting rooms and coworking spaces are also available in the Münsterland Innovation and Service Park in Reken - on a total area of around 14,000 square metres.
Another unique location with exciting events is offered by the Tobit.Campus in Ahaus with the coworking space A1. Since 1986, the Tobit.Labs have been tinkering around with and developing many innovative software products, and this atmosphere is also evident at the Tobit.Campus.
Those looking for a coworking space in Heek will find it at calle3. On the Holtkamp farm in the district of Nienborg, rural idyll meets modern mobile working. The initiators of the project are Bernhard Holtkamp and his family. Their goal is to create an environment in which networking, community, workation, coworking and events can develop.
The Gründer- und Innovationspark Steinfurt - GRIPS for short - offers an optimal location for innovative companies and start-ups that want to benefit from the proximity to Münster University of Applied Sciences. Office and laboratory space, excellent infrastructure and favourable rental conditions. It is located directly on the Steinfurt campus, the centre of the engineering faculties at Münster University of Applied Sciences.
The TD59 digital hub in Ibbenbüren is also visionary, communicative and inspiring. Also integrated into the building complex is a hub satellite of the Digital Hub münsterLand, where space for start-ups is rented out. Each area is individually designed and thus offers possibilities for a wide variety of situations and requirements. The Digital Hub is also a place to meet and a platform for valuable exchange.
High-quality coworking workplaces with a connection to the Münsterland-wide digital community are also available in Emsdetten in the second hub satellite in the district of Steinfurt. There, the Villa Nova was converted into a modern coworking space with an adjoining event and meetup space over 250 square metres. Or how about the FabLab satellite in Lengerich, a digital workshop with an attached coworking space? With the machines there, you can realise your own projects and ideas and acquire skills in new technologies in workshops on electronics, 3D printing, VR and more.
Communication, flexibility and sustainability - this is also what co:viron, the new coworking space in Rheine, stands for. It is located directly at the western entrance to the station and thus offers the ideal location for commuters and business travellers. Also located in Rheine is kontor:worx coworking. Here you will find workplaces directly in the pedestrian zone.
An exciting workspace is also being built on a farm between Laer and Borghorst, the Hof Homann. Attractive and natural alternatives to home office and commuting are to be created here "far out" on more than 1000 square metres. The project is expected to start at the end of 2021. You can already work in the middle of a former stable and residential building at the Hollich 79 farm in Steinfurt near Nefigmann. There you will find office space in the middle of greenery.
Professional workplaces, inviting rooms and a modern meeting area: these are the features of the first coworking space in Beckum, the Work LnB. Here, workplaces including infrastructure can be rented for a limited period of time. An ideal place for self-employed people, project teams and freelancers, and of course also for home office workers: the fully equipped rooms are just right for anyone who only needs a laptop to work and appreciates the exchange with the community. Because the best thing about coworking is the contacts you can make - to support, exchange, consult and talk shop. People need a space to plan joint projects and ideas. Work LnB offers such a space.
There are desks, individual offices and meeting rooms to rent - by the hour, by the day or in a flexible monthly subscription.
