Hugendubel is one of two major book retailers in Germany and remains family owned (it’s headed today by the founder’s two energetic great-grandchildren). To my parent’s generation it’s known as the visionary storefront where you could take your kids, grab a pile of books, pick a corner and read to them (without buying), which back in the 1970s was very forward-thinking Barnes & Nobel of the Munich flagship. It’s still a wonderful place to browse (there’s a large section on Munich, including English language books), and the constant crowds give hope that print publishing is not yet dead.
