Antiquariat Hammerstein, Türkenstraße 37.
If you’re looking for original pages from “Simplicissimus”, an old coffee-table book about Tibet, or perhaps a household calendar from 1911, the Antiquariat Hammerstein is exactly the right place. Petra Hammerstein runs this literary treasury trove with her mother, so it’s a real family business—charmingly unfussy and the perfect spot for endless browsing. Incidentally, Petra Hammerstein is an enthusiastic cook, so she may well reveal recipes—such her grandmother’s for cauliflower gratin. No wonder that she also runs the Café Hammerstein & Maier—but more about that later.
