Re-energizing a Munich landmark

An inspiring workplace with public spaces for everyone



Blending old and new



Delivering sustainable solutions for a unique heritage building


As a company, we’ve been carbon neutral for over a decade and in 2020 we made a commitment to fully decarbonize our electricity supply and operate on 24/7 carbon-free energy by 2030. When designing a campus, we consider every aspect of sustainability. From the healthy materials we use, to incorporating technologies that reduce our overall carbon footprint to integrating real-time solutions that give us better visibility of our energy usage across the whole building.

We’re committed to making Arnulfpost carbon neutral. We want it to maximize the use of circular products and systems, to be resilient, and to help connect people to nature, promoting well-being and inclusion. We’ll work with the existing building wherever possible, retaining its heritage and uniqueness while improving its efficiency.



Building a deeper connection with the community


We’re part of Munich for the long haul and are always thinking of ways to contribute to the city. From the digital skills training we run through Google Zukunftswerkstatt and the events we facilitate for the Munich community at our event space Isar Valley, to realizing a vision for Arnulfpost that benefits everyone.

We want Arnulfpost to be a welcoming place for Googlers, visitors and Munich residents. As we continue to explore how we can make this shared vision a reality, we continue to listen to the community to better understand their needs. We encourage you to sign up for updates .



Encouraging sustainable journeys


In offices around the world, we set ambitious goals for helping our employees to make greener choices when it comes to getting to work, encouraging use of public transport, carpools and zero carbon modes of transport such as cycling and walking.

We want our employees and visitors to Arnulfpost to make more sustainable journeys too. To facilitate this, we’re planning secure, purpose-built bike storage and gym-style changing facilities for Googlers along with bike parking for public use in the courtyard area.

As for cars, we’ll provide electric vehicle charging points and a limited number of car parking spaces for visitors with accessibility needs.

Why is Google looking to invest in Munich?

We’ve been here since 2006 and Munich has become a global hub for Google engineering, research and product development. From a community and social perspective, the building complex at Arnulfpost offers a prime opportunity for Google to breathe new life into a historic landmark, and create a flexible, connected and inspiring space that’s an asset for the city at large.

What does Google aim to develop?

Our plan proposes approximately 30,000 sqm (NIA - net internal area) of internal spaces of new office and collaboration space, event auditorium and training rooms, kitchen/cafe space, reception and adjacent public spaces for engagement with the community, gym and changing facilities, bicycle parking, green space with external landscaped courtyards with some areas accessible by the public.

How many Google employees will be based in Munich?

By the time Arnulfpost is completed, our spaces in Munich will be able to accommodate, in total, approximately 3,000 employees.

We also acknowledge that working preferences will change with the shift to hybrid work so our space will be designed flexibly to accommodate changing needs and workstyles.

When did Google start construction on its proposed project?

Google purchased the site as an active construction site. We have continued with some of the basement and ground works on site as we design our new office space and sought a new planning permit for the relevant alterations and change of use. We submitted for a new, revised building application in July 2020 and received the approval in January 2021. The project is being constructed in phases and we expect to have the next phase, the base build, constructed by the end of 2024 or early 2025.

How can we stay up to date on building designs?

We will continue to share updates on the project with the local community through this website.

Will bicycle parking be available at Arnulfpost?

We encourage our employees to come to work on public transport and zero carbon modes of travel, such as bicycles. In order to accommodate this, we’ll have secure, purpose-built storage for bicycles and changing facilities. For external visitors we are planning to provide bike parking spots in our courtyard areas.

Will historic assets be protected?

Yes, historic assets will be protected. We believe in designing unique spaces that are rooted in local history and culture. In every project, we try to preserve the best of the past while making spaces that are adaptable and flexible for the future.

Arnulfpost is a wonderful and varied site that has unique architectural characteristics, which lend themselves to different ways of working. We are looking to optimize and celebrate these qualities. In order to achieve this, we are working closely with the Listed Building Authorities in Munich.

How will community benefits be addressed?

First and foremost, we are putting Arnulfpost back into use with some areas open for the community and engagement with Google. There will be revived green and open space for public use, and we will host events and training programs for tech startups and Munich residents.

What types of green and open public spaces are planned?

We’re currently studying the existing open spaces, and we have appointed a Munich-based landscape designer to work with us. We will work together to propose successful green and open spaces that are accessible to the community and neighbors. We’re considering places for active and passive recreation, ecological habitats, public gathering spaces, plazas, art installations and other suggestions from the public.

We want Arnulfpost to contribute to the restoration of local biodiversity, increasing the ecological value of the area.

What are Google’s plans with regard to sustainability?

We believe in creating sustainable places that are good for people and the planet. To achieve this, we build spaces and places that are resilient and circular, connect people to nature, to the local community, and help us conserve resources and reduce waste.

Google has been carbon neutral for over a decade, and since 2017, we’ve matched 100 percent of our energy use with renewable energy. Today, we are the world’s largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy. We’re carving a path forward to fully decarbonize our electricity supply and operate on 24/7 carbon-free energy by 2030. We’re committed to doing our part, and will make Google Arnulfpost a carbon neutral campus.
