1. Dussmann Das Kulturkaufhaus

"Large multi-level bookstore, with lots of room to browse and skim books. It has an English section with many of the best sellers from the UK. A fully stocked restaurant and bar are downstairs, along with many perfectly clean toilets. This place is a real treat to visit and you may leave with a book, like I did!"

5. Saint George's English Bookstore

"I love this place. It smells like books, feels like it’s been lovingly curated, and I have found many books that I’ve been looking for here. If you are ever looking for specific books in English, the owner is super friendly and patient in helping you find the books or ordering them for you to pick up. Just what a bookstore should be, which is sadly a rarity these days."

10. Buchhandlung Walther König An Der Museumsinsel

"A very beautiful bookshop that focuses on art, design and architecture. It has a great discounted section where you can get very good books for a fraction of the prices. This makes them very tempting! At the same time, you have a small locked room at the end of the bookshop that houses some of the rare books and art works. A great mix of things. I love that you can buy a nice cloth tote bag from the bookshop for 2 euros. It’s very cool. I really love this bookshop and I feel at home here."

11. Curious Fox

"What an absolute gem of a book store. There is something about having to climb down stairs to a shop that makes it ten times more magical. I found so many great novels in this place. Old books, new books, old books that look like new, books that look like a million minds have read their stories. Great queer section as well and in the back of the shop is a little reading nook. Really, really love this book store!"

13. Motto Berlin

"Great books, cute space - but horrendous owner !Don’t support spaces that exploit their staff and artists. There is hundreds of statements of people who haven’t got paid yet for their work over a DECADE by the owner Alexis Zavialoff !Support the boycott of this place and give the victims a voice and a chance to receive their money back.Motto books is a major disappointment."

14. The Berlin Book Nook

"I've been coming to this place since the opening and always found a book or two, each time. The prices are fair, not super cheap maybe but reflecting the condition and rarity of one book. I bought some for 2-3€ that were quite battered and some for 6-8€ in ship shape form. Its small, it's cramped up, it's full of lovely books and the people working there are always helpful. May their reign be long and prosper!"
