We are part of an office sharing project called the “KreativRaum”, situated in one of the revitalized buildings of the historical Bürgerbräu area in Würzburg, a beautiful town in the region of Franken in Bayern (Bavaria), Germany. See this blog post for more information and a few pictures.
Our offices and our parking lot are accessible from Frankfurter Straße only, you cannot reach us directly from within the Bürgerbräu Area! The entrance to the parking lot is vis-à-vis Frankfurter Straße 120 (on the opposite, southern side of the road).
Arriving from west
If you’re arriving from the west (A3 from Frankfurt or A81 from Heilbronn), passing through Waldbüttelbrunn or Hettstadt, the Bürgerbräu area is situated directly at the city limits. You’ll find our parking lot just before the roundabout on your right-hand side.
Arriving from east
If you’re arriving from the east (A3 from Nürnberg or A7), passing through Würzburg center, please drive past the Bürgerbräu area and past the roundabout. You’ll find our parking lot right after the roundabout on your left-hand side.
As one of the last architectural examples of the Wilhelminian era, the Bürgerbräu Würzburg documents a part of the history of the city and the region. Arranged at one of the city entrances, it is particularly important to the city, its citizens and the district of Zellerau. The almost 200-year history, especially the decline of the brewery and the long vacancy of the last years, have left their mark on the buildings and the entire area.
With the acquisition of large parts of the ensemble by the Bürgerbräu GbR in the summer of 2012, the revitalization of the site will be initiated. The memorial Industrial Culture is cautiously and in close co-ordination with the monument protection, with a quality architecture language transported into the 21st century and established as a hallmark for the city entrance and the entire city.
The area is surrounded by a spacious park-like greenery structure. With their reactivation and supplementation, as well as through new gastronomy and event offers, an attractive recreation area is created. The public space in the center of the area is deliberately transformed into a communication space for its own users, but also for visitors from outside.
Building 13: The Picherei
The german word “Picherei” derives from the verb “pichen” which means sealing barrels with tar pitch. The former Picherei now houses 13 small office units for creative people. Stacked wooden boxes offer space to work. Wood, large glass surfaces, historic stonework, historical steel beams – a contrasting and exciting impression of space.
