since in Berlin bookshops are allowed to stay open (for now) we can still welcome you at our shop! However, this might change at a days notice, which is quite as it should be: However much we care about keeping the Otherland open, we care more about flattening the curve ... that's why all events at the Otherland in the coming weeks are cancelled.
We are trying to make your visit at the Otherland as safe for you - and for us - as possible. We take care of hand hygiene at the counter, and we would ask you to keep your distance from other customers; also, if there are already five or more customers in the Otherland, we would kindly ask you to wait outside until another customer leaves.
The corona virus apparently dies within 24 hours on paper - so it probably can't hurt to put your books to the side for a day before reading them. In general, let's take good care of each other!
For everyone who prefers to (or has to) stay home, we offer shipping to any German address on invoice - just send us an e-mail or call us. We are also happy to discuss and recommend books at the phone. Please try to call within our opening hours, and try again if the line is busy! You can also send us your telephone number by e-mail and have us call you.
As it happens, our telephone is not working quite right at the moment - if you can't reach us at 030 69505117, please try 015901500988 .
Within the next few days, you'll get our regular newsletter with book recommendations - we'll shine a spotlight on all-time favourites, which we stock in sufficient quantity to get them to you in a timely fashion!
Please stay safe, keep each other safe, give help were you can, ask for help if you need it!
