The location

re:publica has found a new location: the STATION-Berlin.

Having stretched the spatial limits of our old site with nearly 3,000 visitors in April 2011, we’re happy to liven up over 20,000 breathtaking square meters at STATION-Berlin on 2 – 4 May, 2012.

The 1913-built Post-Station had its ups and downs before it was ultimately closed in 2003.

Two years later the PREMIUM Exhibitions GmbH bought and extensively renovated the historical halls, respecting and taking care of their industrial charm. Since then all different type of events take place at STATION-Berlin.

On 2 – 4 May 2012, it’ll host the re:publica conference for the first time.

This year, re:publica will take place in the STATION-Berlin venue. The former post train station is centrally located in Berlin and easy reached via the underground lines U1 and U2. From U-Bahnhof “Gleisdreieck” it is only a few meters walk to STATION-Berlin (Google maps).

How do I get to re:publica using public transportation? Take the city train S-Bahn from S+U-Bahnhof Hauptbahnhof to S+U Bahnhof Zoologischer Garten and change to the underground line U2 (northbound towards Pankow) to U-Bahnhof Gleisdreieck. From Alexanderplatz, take the U2 (southbound towards Ruhleben) to U-Bahnhof Gleisdreieck. Due to construction works, the U2 line is interrupted between U-Bahnhof Mohrenstraβe and S+U-Bahnhof Potsdamer Platz – bus replacement services are in effect. The U1 underground line is also available with following interruptions: use the U2 line between U-Bahnhof Gleisdreieck and U-Bahnhof Wittenbergplatz and the bus replacement services between U-Bahnhof Gleisdreick and U-Bahnhof Möckernbrücke. Alternatively, it is only a short walking distance from U-Bahnhof Möckernbrücke to STATION-Berlin.

S-Bahnhof Anhalter Bahnhof is also within walking distance (approx. 8 mins) from STATION. Buses such as the M41 stop there as well.

Further public transport connections can be found via the Berlin Transport Authority BVG website.

We have bike stands located on the STATION site which you can use to lock up a bike.

Getting to re:publica by car: There is a fee-charging parking garage within 60m of the STATION with a capacity of 2.500. However we do recommend that you travel to the location via public transport as free parking in the area is limited.

The car2go smart cars are parked in front of the STATION and can be rented, virtually at the press of a button – spontaneously, with no need for a pre-booking and especially without the need for a set time limit.
More details on car2go on our website.


Alongside an outdoor barbecue, re:publica catering also includes healthy salads and sandwiches, available at various snack booths, as well as a purpose-build restaurant for #rp12. There you can take a break from the ACT!ON, enjoy a warm meal and re-charge with some drinks at the re:fill bar. The re:staurant is open as long as the STATION itself: Wednesday and Thursday till 10 pm and Friday till 8 pm.
