Sight Seeing

McNally Jackson, New York
Books for Cooks, London
Le 27 Rue Jacob in Paris
Kochhaus Berlin

BERLIN: When I visit a city for business or pleasure I make sure to look out for the best bookstores in town. It should be special, nothing ordinary with the typical chain bookstore character. A good bookstore has a speciality it is known for. Special topics, readings, workshops, exhibitions, cooking classes or just the most comfortable atmosphere to read a book for hours.

Here are my favorite spots when it comes to buying books:

  • GESTALTEN SPACE, Sophie-Gips-Höfe, Sophienstraße 21, 10178 Berlin, for inspiring workshops, events and exhibitions
  • OFR, 20, rue du Petit-Thouars, 75003 Paris, for tango dancing classes, yoga and cooking workshops
  • LE 27 RUE JACOB, 27, rue Jacob, 75006 Paris, to meditate with the psychologist Christophe Andre and visit readings by  Nancy Houston
  • BOOKS FOR COOKS, 4 Blenheim Crescent, London W11 1NN, to cook the most delicious dishes you just read about
  • MCNALLY JACKSON, 52 Prince Street, New York 10012, for an excellent selection of books and magazines, a stylish café and literary events



brings good news to you.
She lives and travels around
the world, stopping wherever
she sees something interesting,
reporting on what inspires her.
She finds beauty in the
most varied places,
from fashion shows
to art exhibits, from lonely
beaches to bustling cities.



When in Munich my
favorite store to look
for the best selection
of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
best ideas for styling
and mixing different
designers together.
