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."
Christian Gärtner / Group CFO Hello Fresh
Tenant at Backfabrik from 2015 - 2021
"At Backfabrik we grew from being an aspiring tech startup to unicorn status. On this journey, Backfabrik supported us as a reliable real estate partner, so that we at FORTO could grow and focus on our core business."
Michael Wax / Co-Founder & CEO Forto

"Backfabrik has been Wooga’s home since 2009. Because of Backfabrik’s large size, we could grow Wooga within the building. Over the years we rented space at Backfabrik on demand and expanded our presence from initially 15 workplaces to 300 workplaces today."

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.
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
Horst Schießer turnes the factory into 'Cityback' and continues with food production.
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.
Hargen M. Bartels together with R.E.M.M. (Real Estate Merger & Management) acquires the site and engages architects Marc Kocher and Corni Bartels with the transformation of the historic wholesale bakery building into a place for creative industry.
In September 2001, Gerhard Schröder, Chancellor of Germany, visits the Backfabrik construction site.
In February 2002, Wolfgang Thierse, President of The German National Parliament, officially opens the Backfabrik.
Backfabrik has become one of the most desirable work destinations in Berlin for ambitious tech unicorns such as Hello Fresh, Forto, Adjust and Wooga. Read what our tenants say.
