Hackerspacing in Europe: Conclusion

tour copy

Wow! What a trip. In just over one week we travelled nearly 2000 km and visited 13 hackerspaces in 10 different cities in Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands. However that was only the tip of the iceberg — there were dozens more hackerspaces in the area, and we wish we had the time to visit them all! The hospitality of the hackerspaces was amazing. Thank you so much to all the spaces we visited! If you missed some of tours, you can see the them all here.

    Great articles – it could be cool if a comparison could be drawn between American and European hackerspaces. Well, if there is a difference at all :)

    Not a single visit in France ?

    We have some great hacker space too :)

  3. Moem says:

    Thanks for coming over, we enjoyed it a lot even if it was a short visit! And the article is totally, utterly awesome.

  4. Isn’t England in Europe? We have those too!

    Great to have you James!

    You might want to have a look at this video before referencing The Netherlands as Holland. ;)

    The hackerspace Euro tour was fantastic! I’d love to see maybe a database/ map of hackerspaces, worldwide. This could make it easier for people to find a hackerspace in their local area. Maybe have profiles, too?

  8. Next time you should also come over to Vienna and visit the metalab!

  10. Jay Vaughan says:

    I second the call to come to metalab in Vienna – most definitely a great place to get your hack on!

  11. Mind of Illusion says:

    It was a nice serie of great articles, thanks to all hackerspace owners to share your space with us !
