  • 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 ;)
  • All books including of course English books, movies, music, stationary and everything that belongs to it.... Always looking forward to a visit here and always finding hard to leave. Best place in Berlin for finding something interesting to read or watch or listen to. And the hanging gardens and the restaurant should not be missed! Worth at least half a day to spend there.
  • Superb bookshop cum media store. Excellent history selection on the top floor. Loads of DVDs. Decent English-speaking section. Best general bookshop in Berlin, possibly all Germany.
  • An enormous collection of books and other media in many languages and genres. Also includes other miscellaneous items, such as gift shop items, merchandise for several TV shows, movies and books, and some random bits of stuff mixed in as well (such as hammers!). The prices are surprisingly cheap, and the costumer service is more than satisfactory. It also includes regular, free events such as small concerts. Definitely worth a visit, revisit and more regular visits for anyone staying in Berlin.
  • Comfortable place with many English books. Nice employees. It has the great advantage to be open until 24:00. It is a good place to buy books, but you also may stay confortably reading before deciding. The English collection covers many classics, politics management and popular science. If you want computer science books in english languages there is only few very basic books.
