Berlin – Our locations in the capital
City Population: 3,677,472
Berlin epitomises Germany’s momentous history as the very definition of perseverance and ingenuity. The city's vibrant urban culture embraces diversity and individuality and is a hive for innovation and creativity where start-ups, creative industries and traditional businesses all thrive. As early as the 1920s Berlin was a centre of culture on a par with Paris and London. It’s no accident that Deutsche Bank was founded here in 1870. Today, the city plays a key role in Deutsche Bank's future concept with a clear focus on innovation and digitalisation.
Variety of different businesses and areas

Deutsche Bank has launched a new architectural concept in the heart of Berlin to build a creative, modern meeting spot for businesspeople, private clients, creatives and start-ups. Whether you’re looking for a meeting spot to take care of business, a place to develop networks and generate ideas, or simply relax and have a coffee. Quartier Zukunft is an urban oasis which represents a modern, urban lifestyle. A “green café” for creative respite, a changing exhibition on the theme of sustainability and an open-plan marketplace for workshops and small events. An urban place of inspiration for any situation.
Innovation network hub
Deutsche Bank’s goals include making its services even more straightforward, more efficient and more customer-centric. Headquartered in Berlin, Deutsche Bank’s five innovation labs are a network of important think tanks and sources of inspiration in this effort. The labs play a key role in the digital strategy and growth of the bank. Here, external innovations are combined with the requirements of our businesses and refined. And test scenarios are created for the banking business of the future as a platform for cooperation with start-ups.
We have a substantial branch network in Berlin as well as specialist teams and infrastructure units. The Service Centre provides administrative support for the branches throughout Germany, with a special focus on risk management. The prestigious Unter den Linden building is home to various infrastructure functions and is also a representative office of the Deutsche Bank Management Board.
The Palais Populaire is an embodiment of the broad cultural and societal commitment of Deutsche Bank and is a forum for everyone who wants to experience art, culture and sport in an interdisciplinary format. Exhibitions compiled from the collections of Deutsche Bank, cooperation partners and private collections are among the activities offered, along with lectures, discussions, painting workshops and much more. A strong signal to underline the importance of art, culture and sport for society. The attractive location in the Prinzessinnenpalais at Unter den Linden and in the immediate vicinity of the Berlin State Opera provides additional appeal.
Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft
Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft takes its name from the Chairman of Deutsche Bank who was assassinated in 1989. Herrhausen was considered a courageous free thinker who was strongly dedicated to the common good. In this spirit, the Herrhausen Gesellschaft advocates for a free and open society and unity. It creates a forum for openness and tolerance in our interactions with each other through events, publications and pan-European projects.
A place to be
Berlin is a major industrial and service hub and fertile ground for start-ups. Companies from all industries and countries have traditionally located large branches here. After Germany’s Reunification in 1990, Berlin’s economy was restructured and took a new direction – toward a clear focus on knowledge-centric production. Creative and cultural fields, biotech and communications technologies are key economic sectors. Berlin is a world-class city with the fourth largest economy in Europe.
Berlin is one of the world’s top capitals of higher education and home to more than 40 universities and higher education institutions. From the humanities in the tradition of Humboldt to advanced technology projects, Berlin reflects the full spectrum of today’s education landscape.
All parts of Berlin are easily accessible. Commuter rail and subways connect its districts from Charlottenburg to Neukölln and the outskirts are easily and conveniently reachable as well. A quirky detail for fans of statistics: Berlin’s local transportation system circles the earth 8.7 times per day. And, after a very long construction period, the new Berlin airport is ready to welcome visitors from around the world.
Art and culture
The Berliner Philharmonic, the Berliner Ensemble theatre with its strong Brecht tradition and Deutsche Oper Berlin all form part of the city’s rich theatre landscape. The list of the city’s major cultural institutions is long and varied. From the Pergamon Museum and National Gallery to the Egyptian Museum with its famous bust of Nefertiti, from the Reichstag and Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church to Bauhaus architecture – in Berlin, history meets contemporary vision. The country’s momentous recent history is present everywhere – from the Holocaust memorial to the Berlin Wall. Along with Cannes and Venice, the Berlinale is among the world’s major international film festivals. And, of course, Berlin also has spectacular sporting events to offer. The Olympic Stadium in Berlin is the location of many different international sporting events and a huge draw annually for football fans from across the country for the German Cup Final. Berlin, Berlin, we’re going to Berlin!
Food and drink
“Currywurst” (sausage in curry sauce) was invented in Berlin and today – along with the equally ubiquitous doner kebab – is a symbol of uncomplicated everyday cuisine. In Berlin, there’s a fast food shack and doner kebab stand around every corner. Each year, Berliners consume 400,000 doner kebabs and, believe it or not, 70 million curried sausages. No wonder then that the city even has a currywurst museum! Of course, Berlin is also home to world-class starred restaurants as well as a diverse culinary offering, sometimes specific to certain neighbourhoods, from across the globe. Berlin’s signature drink, the “Berliner Weiße” (sour beer) is the perfect accompaniment for a warm summer night in a beer garden along the Spree River.
