Affordable living at Helmsweg

Azubiwerk Foundations second dormitory is being built on the property of Helmsweg 30 (21073 Hamburg) under the slogan “More than just affordable living in Harburg”. The new building with a total of 4,600 square meters of living and effective area offers rooms for 191 apprentices over 8 stories. In addition to an affordable rent, the future residents can look forward to spacious common areas – altogether 462 square meters. The areas offer two communal kitchens, cozy lounge areas with sofas, beamer and sound system as well as various leisure equipment (billiard tables, table football etc.). In addition, a spacious roof terrace invites you to relax.

Under the premise of “Accompany instead of supervising”, the apprentices are being supported in taking their first steps outside their own parents’ home, independently and self-responsibile. The experienced pedagogical team at Azubiwerk offers a variety of activities and consulting services on site. More information about the educational offers on site can be found here.
