Authentic and urban – in the heart of Mannheim. The Startup Center ALTE VOLKSBAD is the launch pad for creative startups who want to get busy.  

Our startup center in the Neckarstadt-West is a hotspot for startups in the cultural and creative scene. Where once residents used to bathe in the basement rooms, today the upper floors are home to over 25 companies from the design, film, photography, media and other creative industries. The startup center ALTES VOLKSBAD - CREATIVE BUSINESS is the perfect spot for young creatives seeking advice, affordable office space and an inspiring atmosphere.


Spaces can be rented from as little as 20 sqm in size – ideal conditions for creative freelancers who want to get off to an uncomplicated start. The Community Management offers competent advice and know-how on topics such as business plans or funding and financing. Personal service ensures a relaxed atmosphere at the center. The versatile tenant mix makes precious synergies possible and joint projects among the resident companies are constantly being initiated.

The Community Management provides support through contacts to authorities, credit institutions and regional networks. Startups profit from the integration into the NEXT MANNHEIM network and from the cultural development of the Neckarstadt. Mannheim's largest district is an urban creative hub that spawns exciting projects such as live stages, galleries, gastronomy or event formats such as Go West or the annual Lichtmeile.


With its flexible spaces, the ALTE VOLKSBAD is also an ideal place for meetings, conferences, workshops and other events. On a total area of 1,200 sqm, offices ranging from 20 to 77 sqm are available as well as meeting rooms, a seminar room, a large foyer and broadband IT.
