Good bookstore for English books in the back, nice place to sit for a coffee downstairs. And a huge collection of LPs in the music section of the 3-floor bookstore

If you're a lover of reading, the written word, or just generally love the smell of newly printed books, Dussmann is the place to go! They have an English section near the back of the store and I picked up the cutest copy of Grimm's Fairy Tales!

One of the few (remaining) places where you can spend hours going through the CD offerings... really impressive and worthwhile!

This is arguably the best bookstore in Berlin. Located in the touristic Friedrichstrasse, the store is quite big and spacious. They have a wide selection of books as well as movies in the upstairs section. We were there to buy some foreign films with English subtitles; some of the films only have German subs so it's a matter of luck... More

As everyone else has commented, this place is huge with a pretty section for books in English. And of course, every imaginable book in German - and DVD's and CD's and.... And once you're tired of perusing their vast collection, go to the lower level with the "gardens of Babylon" on the wall and a very nice place for a... More

First of all: although we live now in www, cyber world and we search, find things on line but it's always nice to have a hard copies on hand. This Dussmann das Kulturhaus: it is not only mainly a book store! and the most important thing: opening hours on week day till 24:00. amazing!

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
