The “big mamma” of Berlin’s bookshops, with several floors and miles of bookshelves for you to peruse. Currently undergoing renovations (but still open for business). I like the Travel section, natürlich, and the section of books about Berlin. There are CDs, DVDs, audiobooks, maps, calendars and more on sale. The store also has a kiosk near the main entrance selling tickets for events such as musicals, opera, concerts, theatre and so on. The best thing is that it opens early and stays open late.
