7. Otherland

"Fantasy, or Sci Fi books? The best place for both. Also their RPG corner has magic... you ALWAYS find things there you didn't even know existed in print.They speak both German and English. Their book shelves also contain volumes in both of those languages which is not only rare but also very much appreciated.I can't wait to return, even though I dread those days too... you folks always have so much cool stuff that I run out of my budget super fast.The staff is also super chill and friendly. A very welcoming, heart-warming, beautiful shop for a fellow geek."

8. 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."

9. Curious Fox

"English language independent bookstore. There are a lot of cool books. Wide selection. New ones. Second hand ones. Fiction ones. Non-fiction ones. There's also a special small section for Irish stuff. I recommend you go there and check it out for yourself and see if any of them interest you, ya dummy. The second-hand books in the attached pictures cost around 20 euro. My guy at the register was really helpful and nice."
