Dussmann das KulturKaufhaus offers an analog audio studio, a printing shop, a Polaroid lab, a vinyl recorder for people’s own records, a stage for readings and concerts, and much more.

Why does a service company operate a media department store? Our company founder Peter Dussmann came from a family of booksellers and was himself a trained bookstore clerk. When he moved his service company into the new headquarters in Berlin in the mid-1990s, he seized the opportunity and created Dussmann the KulturKaufhaus. In 2023, it was voted one of the ten most beautiful bookstores in the world.
