Eurowings Digital relocates to Cologne Mülheim in 2019
Eurowings Digital, the Cologne-based airline’s digital company, will be located in the Carlswerk building in Cologne Mülheim from spring. The relocation from Gremberghoven, a district in the southeast of Cologne, to the Schanzenstrasse is planned for February/March 2019. Within the next three years, a total of 150 digital experts are to find and implement solutions to changing digital customer behaviour.
New Work environment for Eurowings employees
The new company location in the Schanzenstrasse is in Cologne’s attractive start-up region. The new head office of Eurowings Digital is in close proximity to other digital companies, such as REWE Digital and OBI next. Eurowings Digital’s new centrally located premises in the Carlswerk have a modular structure, enabling employees to work flexibly and responsively in changing teams. The interior design of the new Eurowings Digital offices allows the digital experts to collaborate in a versatile and interdisciplinary manner. In addition to the usual meeting rooms, there will also be various open areas, such as seating areas which provide further opportunities for small groups of two to four people to share ideas and opinions. The ability to draw on walls or use them as projection surfaces is an open invitation to collaborate on interdisciplinary project work.
