Bookshop in the Schanze From children's book to political reading
Bookstore à la Schanze: The Schanzenbuch on the Schulterblatt has translated the Schanzenviertel's attitude to life into a bookstore. It all began over 40 years ago with the sale of children's books and toys.
Just a stone's throw from the Rote Flora, the bookstore in the Schanzenviertel district has been devoted to political and fiction literature for almost three decades.
The beginnings of the Schanzenbuch are only one crossroads away. At the end of the 1970s "Die Druckerei" was opened in Schanzenstraße. The bookstore's main focus was on the sale of children's and educational books as well as toys. With the restructuring of the Schanzenviertel, the demand for books also changed. More and more students, left-wing projects and collectives found their way into the Schanze at the end of the 1980s. The interest in political books spurred "Die Druckerei" to expand its range of products.
In 1991 the bookstore in the Schanzenviertel was opened. The offer primarily serves readers interested in politics and literature. "Die Druckerei" also invites you to browse through children's and educational books.
