Welcome to xHain

Hack- & Makespace in the heart of Friedrichshain, tinkering room for people interested in technology + space for digital politics.

Swing by

Come by, take a look, and join in! Every Monday from 6pm until late at night in Grünberger Str. 16 in Berlin. We have an open event for kids every month. It is typically held towards the end of the month and runs from 1 – 6 p.m.


Most of our events are open to non-members. Just check our calendar to see what’s going on and might be interesting to you.

All creatures welcome

Whether you’re a hacker, maker, or just curious, you’re welcome at xHain! It doesn’t matter how much experience you have, or if you’re a student, retired, or anything in between, but whether you’re interested in coding, electronics & soldering, woodworking, laser cutting, CNC milling, 3D printing, textiles, sewing, and more.

We want everyone to feel comfortable at xHain!

xRoots symbol

Our xRoots mentors are here to help you get started, show you around at xHain, and answer your questions. If you have special needs or concerns, we will take care of them. Just look for people with the xRoots logo/badge on monday nights or talk to us in the chat.

xHain is a smoke-free place. If you want to smoke, you can do so outside. If you are an asshole, e.g. sexist, racist, or homophobic, don’t bother coming. Please read and follow our space rules.
