A manor house with an expansive garden, a swimming pond, a sauna, upcycled furniture, a piano and fireplaces. This isn’t the first image that springs to mind when considering work, but this is exactly what you’ll find in the tiny Brandenburg village of Klein Glien. Owners Julianne, Janosch, Iris and Philipp have created a beautiful space, with the core belief that nature helps us be more productive, creative and healthy; and it’s not just the space we love, the energy here is also special.
The first thing that strikes you as you walk through the manor’s impressive wooden doors is just how relaxed everyone appears, despite the fact their on a working holiday. Leading off from the entrance hall are dozens of smaller rooms: the cosy library, the quiet coworking spaces and the community dining room. Bedrooms are minimal but welcoming, and outside are romantic yurts. Through the large windows, and past the vegetable gardens, is tree after tree after tree, where moments of stillness are abundant. It’s bliss.
Introducing Julianne, Janosch, Iris and Philipp!
“We stand for community and concentrated work in nature.”
“The atmosphere here is so special. We have a very familial way here, and it is an open one, so anyone can jump on in and feel welcome. Plus there are spaces for quiet reflection, too.”
Julianne, Janosch, Iris and Philipp’s insider tips
Coconat Coworking Retreat is located in Klein Glien (Potsdam’s Mittelmark region).
You can easily drive, and there’s on-site parking available.
It’s oh-so-easy to arrive using public transport. The station of Bad Belzig (which you can reach with a direct train from Berlin) is 5km away: so you could cycle or walk, optionally, a bus goes through the village, but not very regularly.
Note that Coconat Coworking Retreat is shut over for a few weeks over the Christmas period.
