For many companies, especially in the retail or restaurant trades, the choice of location is extremely important. For others, low rents are more important. Think carefully about what location factors (e.g. accessibility for customers, surrounding area, transport links, technical equipment, costs, etc.) are relevant to your company.

All the relevant information about Berlin as a location can be found in the central location information portal for companies, the Business Location Center and the associated applications, such as the economic atlas with a 3D-city model or the solar atlas.
