Strasbourg has it all. It boasts a UNESCO-protected old town, but is also the official seat of the European Parliament as well as the International Institute of Human Rights. On the border with Germany, it connects France to that country and its position on the Rhine makes it an important economic player. Remotely Serious has gathered a list of great coworking spaces you can use while working remotely or visiting Strasbourg as a digital nomad.
MyWO Strasbourg Gare
Located within the Best Western Plus Monopole-Métropole hotel, a few steps away from the train station, this MyWO space offers several options every day. You can sit at a table or on a couch in the Salon 1945, tastefully decorated in a retro style, from 5 € per hour, between 8am and 9pm on weekdays or 10am-8pm on the weekend. Snacks are provided as well as AC. Alternatively, the Salle Gachot is perfect for meetings between 4 and 12 people, and features a projector and a paperboard. If you need an office space for up to 5 people, choose the My Office for 5 option, from 80€ for half a day and 115€ per day. And finally, the myWO’lib option lets you book at a table for free in a shared space (with printer and natural light) if there are spaces and on condition that you order something to eat or drink.
Welcome Coworking Meinau
With its comprehensive offer, Welcome Coworking Meinau is an attractive option. Whether you’re looking for a few hours of hot desking (at 5€/hour), time at a desk (10€) or the ability to drop by several times a month (29€/month), or you need a dedicated desk, you can find your happiness in this industrial-style but very cosy space, located on Avenue de Colmar. An equipped kitchen, coffee, and a meeting room are also on offer, and members can benefit from special offers on newspapers, Internet connections and reductions in partner stores.
Focused on creating a sense of community and benefiting the local economy, Quai n10, in the centre of Strasbourg, is a more modest proposition and a non-profit association, offering a bright open space that can welcome up to 15 coworkers. Anyone wishing to visit the space even just for a day must pay the 10€ for annual membership, then the rates are lucrative. A day pass (for a weekday between 9am and 6pm) comes at 11€ only, giving you access to hot desking with wi-fi, a printer, free coffee or tea, and the use of the kitchen. The monthly rate is 75€, while a personal desk (that can be either seating or standing!) with 24/7 access and comes with a locker costs 220€/month.
Currently present in two locations in Strasbourg, Rocket Tower is the futuristic but convivial coworking option. Near the train station, up to 70 people can work in a combination of offices (from 1 to 12 seats) and hot desks with 24/7 access. A spacious and bright inside terrace, an equipped kitchen, a brainstorming space as well as a projection room are also available. The Neudorf location, in the south of the city, offers similar options as well as a large rooftop and free parking.
Calling itself a “real-life social network,” Anticafé’s Strasbourg space, located in the centre of town, is worth checking out. From 6€/hour to 26€/day, its hot desking option is flexible and comes with free (and good) coffee and snacks, printers and boards as well as projectors, and isolated spaces for your Zoom calls. Spaces can also be rented out for meetings or large events.
Making the most of its location, Kaleidoscoop aims at helping people with their cross-border work and work-search, partnering with German companies, while promoting a sustainable and more social approach to work. Located close to the Strasbourg Cathedral and housed in a formerly industrial building, the space offers coworking options for 12€/half-day, or 180€ per month with 4h of meeting room use per month. Shared offices come at 250€/month or 3,000€/year and grant you access to storage space, unlimited meeting room hours as well as usage of event rooms of various sizes. The real advantage of Kaleidoscoop lies in all the other unique treasures it houses and its cooperative structure, with a cafe-restaurant, a shop full of sustainable and organic food as well as reusable materials and second-hand clothes, a bike repair shop, as well as a dedicated space for new social entrepreneurs to share their innovations, toward a better future.
