Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
A treasure for English-speaking visitors to the city, Dussmann das KulturKaufhaus includes two entire floors dedicated exclusively to books printed in English. The shop is so large and well-stocked that it's easy to lose track of time inside this book-lover's playground. The store includes an on-site cafe and remains open later than most other shops, allowing visitors plenty of leisurely browsing time in the evening. Five sprawling floors are packed wall to wall with books, DVDs, CDs, and magazines, leaving no genre unaccounted for. The staff speaks fluent English and is readily available to help you locate whatever you're seeking. You can borrow reading glasses or a portable CD player at the info desk.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.

  • Good bookstore for English books in the back, nice place to sit for a coffee downstairs. And a huge collection of LPs in the music section of the 3-floor bookstore  more »

  • One of the few (remaining) places where you can spend hours going through the CD offerings... really impressive and worthwhile!  more »

  • Books, books, books, books, books, books, and more books. Everyone who likes to read will find something (as will those who don't). I particularly liked the range of design and photography books. Was thinking about giving only four stars, because the sheer amount and variety of books (and other media) makes it very hard not to spend several hours in their shop.
  • The perfect place for book and music lovers! It has many hidden spots to just take a book or listen to a cd, and relax. I have literally spent days in there! Also very nice: the english book shop at the back of the ground floor, near the waterfall. (Yes, I said waterfall)
  • Heaven for book lovers. Great selection of new releases as well as some more esoteric volumes available for purchase. Huge German language section, where you will be able to buy your Sprachschule books for almost any course in Berlin. Nice selection of art and travel books. If you are someone who loves bookstores then Dussmann is a must visit. Any Americans or Brits will immediately feel at home here as it seems to be modeled in the style of large Barnes & Noble shops in major cities.
  • The best English book store in Berlin. The Dussmann House has a huge bookstore inside covering all genres in German. The reason why I visit this place though is the English book store. It is a two level store offering all sorts of genres. Inside you will find cozy reading corners where you can sit to get to know all the books a bit better. In the building you will also find a cafe where you can relax over a drink after doing your book shopping.
  • Perhaps my most favorite book store in the world. A great music collection. I always find what I'm looking for
