Dating back to 1885, E-WERK is Germany’s oldest surviving electrical substation. With its impressive quadrant-shaped control room, it is one of the few architectural remnants of the country’s industrial past, and served for years as a techno club. Today, E-WERK is an events venue in the heart of Berlin Mitte that welcomes people from across the worlds of art, culture, business and media. Versatile and central, it is the quintessential urban location, and as such will welcome international mayors on the opening day of the conference.
