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.

  • A place of visit in Berlin. Splendid library that also has a comfortable Café-Restaurant, with good international cuisine and, superbly served by friendly and professional staff. Very nice decor with an indoor vertical garden.

  • Excellent selection of diverse articles. Bookworms will spend hours in here and come out with a big shopping bag and an empty wallet from the Department store.

  • What a discovery! I passed this place several times, but never entered, because I thought it is another boring book store or something. If you'd like to find great books, vintage audio cassettes, discs and vinyls and accompanying stuff, this is your place! If you don't want to buy boring souvenirs, but would like to bring your friends something really worthy from Berlin, this is your place! If you'd like to find fancy wrapping paper, cards and other nice little things, English books and much-much more, this is your place! There is also a nice area with the green plants wall and really fresh air. And it works until midnight ;)
  • It's the best book store I have ever been into. They have a huge international section on the first floor, an incredible music selection on the ground floor and my personal favorite: a piano where you can play the huge selection of scores they have in the basement. You can spend a nice free day there reading and eating in the restaurant too.
  • If you're into books like I am, this is paradise. There is a huge German selection, but also a very decent English bookshop where you can find classics and new editions. There's something for everyone here. Also, it is open until quite late.
  • Huge. Paradise for book worms and office stationary stuff. Has a good collection of English language books as well. You will always end up buying something there before exiting.
  • A huge books and DVD store, good prices, nice service, friendly staff.. You can have a very wide choices to buy books written by many languages, very multiple kinds. I liked this book store so much from my first visit.
