Living in Wandsbek

Affordable living at Wandsbeker Chaussee

The Azubiwerk runs a dormitory for young people who have come to Hamburg to start an apprenticeship. Our dorm is home to 156 apprentices aged 16 to 26 years.

Living in small shared flats and the many common areas and activities make our house more than a collection of apartments – it’s a real home with a strong social environment and is also conveniently located in the heart of the city.

Under the premise of “Accompany instead of caring”, the apprentices are supported in their own independence and self-responsibility to take the first steps outside of their parents’ home. The pedagogical team of Azubiwerk offers a variety of activities and consulting services on site. Since we have underage as well as adult residents living in Wandsbek, our pedagogical team is on site around the clock, 365 days a year. We advise, help or just listen to our residents, if needed. The common areas provide space for a variety of ideas: from cooking together to gardening on our roof terrace. More information about the pedagogical offers can be found here.
