  • There is nothing, nothing there. Read, listen, watch, with a coffee slurping. All well sorted and searchable. Opening hours until midnight during the week, all top. Bring necessarily time, dive and enjoy. Every online seller looks quite old, here everything takes immediately.

  • One of the best bookstores I have ever been to! There are multiple floors, topic of every sort and everything is so well-classified! There is a huge department of English books and the variety is probably the highest in Berlin. The staff is friendly and you can easily find what you need. It’s very convenient to the transportation too.
  • This was the biggest bookstore I have ever been to and it did not disappoint. Thankfully there was also an English section, with a good variety of book. There are places where one can read books and the staff keeps everything tidy and clean. Also the staff are polite and very helpful. Would definitely go there again! :D
  • This isn't simply a bookshop, but an experience! They call themselves the book/art department store and they aren't exaggerating. For bookworms it's sheer heaven: several floors of books, mostly in German of course, but with a whole floor dedicated to English ones. Browsing around is comfortable with little sitting corners for resting and reading. Additionally to books there is also a big collection of CDs and DVDs from all over the world. The place stays open late at night. On Saturdays, it closes on 23.30.
  • Nice place for book lovers! Not an absolute must do but if you’re not looking for anything in particular it’s nice to walk around and browse the books and records. They also have a nice paperware range and an English book section with a limited children’s books area.
  • Probably one of the nicest and most well-stocked book stores I've ever been in. Despite the location the prices on books are actually not bad and the selection is quite big. Here I am talking about the selection of English books. The amount of German books there is, of course, off the charts as it is a book store located in Berlin. Around the shop you can find little seating areas where you can sit down, relax and decide whether or not the book you've find is coming home with you are not. Within the shop there is also a café which I did not try out, but it looked cozy and nice. What looked even better was the vertical garden that you can find within the café and which is also the world's biggest of it's kind.
