Radialsystem V

Radialsystem V is an international center for art, music and culture and closely linked to hy!. The symbiosis of old and new is still evident in the architecture of the former pumping station and its new, simple glass design and reflects the basic idea of hy!: the interplay of tradition and innovation, culture and entrepreneurship. Thanks to its creative rebirth in a new context, Radialsystem V perfectly symbolizes the modern Berlin and therefore is an ideal place for hy!.

Berlin calling

hy! is deeply rooted in the city of Berlin. Widely regarded as the startup capital of Europe, Berlin has long played host to the counter-culture movement. With a low cost of living and boundless creativity on every street corner, the German capital city is sure to inspire anyone with an idea. Right at the intersection of creative culture and industrial infrastructure, it is the logical place to connect media, policy makers, business leaders and upcoming startups.
