Networking Dinner

Let's go to the...

Pier 13, Tempelhofer Damm 227

About the location

Pier 13 is located in the center of the historic Tempelhofer Binnenhafen, which emphasizes its old industrial character after extensive renovation. Surrounded by the newly created marina and the old warehouse building, Pier 13 offers an ideal setting for relaxed networking with excellent gastronomy.
