Our philosophy – our ambition

Premium offices and professional service at top locations


At CONTORA Office Solutions, companies, freelancers or founders rent individually high quality offices and conference rooms – just like you would book a first class hotel room. Our offices and meeting rooms are always flexibly available: for one hour, one day, one month or long term.

Investments are eliminated, as are the risks associated with long-term leases. Further services, such as secretarial support or professional telephone services, can be booked at any time as required.

You can also rent a virtual office in a CONTORA Office Center. With an exclusive company address, telephone and all available services, but without fixed office costs.

Idea and History


In mid-2011, the idea was born to establish a new line of exclusive office centres in Germany. The search for unique office properties in premium locations began with the aim of offering a comprehensive service analogous to the 5-star hotel industry.

After about one and a half years, the first CONTORA Office Solutions Center finally opened, along with the CONTORA Concierge Service, which also belongs to the CONTORA Group. The comprehensive support of the office tenants and apartment owners as well as their visitors is an ideal complement to the exclusive range offered by the group.

The special: Each CONTORA Office Solutions Center is individually designed, always unique and exclusive. It is important to us to create a comfortable working environment in which customers feel they are in good hands. Our trained service staff is always there for you. At the same time, you can expect highly professional equipment, for example to convince your business partners during video conferences.

Our locations

CONTORA Offices in the economic metropolises of Germany

You don't just rent an office from CONTORA Office Solutions somewhere. Instead, you work at the most renowned locations in Germany: in Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Düsseldorf. These metropolises are known for their strong economic growth, their vibrant urban life as well as the high quota of skilled workers and important companies to build up your network.


Two exclusive CONTORA Office Solutions Centers are located in Germany's capital: right in the middle of the Brandenburg Gate in the Palais am Pariser Platz and in the UPPER WEST building on Kurfürstendamm. Both locations impress with their international reputation, the excellent infrastructure and the immediate surroundings full of hotels, restaurants, cafés and cultural contact points.


CONTORA Office Solutions is also represented twice in Munich. Once in the Theresienhof not far from Odeonsplatz and once again in the Palais an der Oper. Here you work right in the heart of Bavaria's state capital and enjoy the numerous possibilities that an office at such a strongly networked location offers you.


Our Business Center in Frankfurt are located in the heart of the banking district.

From the Frankfurt skyline, over the historic old town and along the Main, you can be inspired by the unique surroundings.


Our Office Center in the Hanseatic City of Hamburg is located directly on the world-famous Rathausmarkt. The historic ensemble "Alter Wall" was completely revitalised here in its most beautiful location between the town hall, Alsterfleet and Alter Börse by mid-2019. The combination of a listed, lavishly crafted façade and modern, light-flooded architecture inside is probably unique in Germany.


In the top location in Düsseldorf's city center, the impressive KÖ-Quartier is located and forms an outstanding ensemble directly on the world-famous Königsallee. At this junction of the state capital, you can take advantage of all the benefits of an ultra-modern infrastructure at one of the best business addresses in Germany.
