What our tenants say

"We moved into Backfabrik as a young and ambitious tech start-up and have grown within the building to become one of Germany's 50 biggest public companies. Backfabrik has spacious loft areas - ideal to facilitate collaboration and exchange of ideas, which resonates very well with our dynamic employee base. R.E.M.M. always acted as a constructive partner towards us with clear communication and consistent behavior."

History

1890s

The factory dates back to the end of the 19th century. It was on this site that the brothers Aschinger built the headquarters of their empire supplying pea soup and "Schrippen" (bread rolls). By the end of the mid-1920s, 4000 people were employed in the workshops and food production of the Backfabrik.

1947

In 1947 began the VEB BAKO and the "Ostschrippe" era, from which the Backfabrik derives its name. Its huge baking machines made rolls and bread for the whole of East Berlin

1990

Horst Schießer turnes the factory into 'Cityback' and continues with food production.

1997

Cityback closes its doors, followed by three exciting years of temporary use as an off-location. The Casino and the Cookies attracted many hundreds of people each week. Alternative workshops, a skating rink and much more found a temporary home here.
