At least in a philosophical sense, a favorite spot is not necessarily a place that one frequents much, but it can be one that we admire profoundly.
Antiquariat Carl Wegner is such a place that I admire. Mr. Carl Wegner must have been the founder, and the first capital letter of his given name Carl just shows how old this antiquarian bookstore is.
Located in the less than 200 meters from the Volkspark Schöneberg-Wilmersdorf, Antiquariat Carl Wegner presents not only a very presentable collection both on- and offline, especially in its two periodically changing, beautiful shop windows.
Books are mostly in German. For old book lovers who read in this language, Wegner is a paradise, particularly since prices are very reasonable. For non-German readers, or even simple visitors, Wegner’s museum-like setting is highly recommended, as part of a nice walk from Volkspark Schöneberg-Wilmersdorf and Rudolph-Wilde Park.
Books are love. Some from my early twentieth-century German books on exotic Asia came from there, three years ago when I moved back to Berlin. I recently got a beautiful “Berliner Märchen” (Berlin’s Tales) and a very lovely “Märchen aus dem Tierleben” (Animal Fairy Tales). The latter was printed right before the Nazis took power.
