Favourite Reading Spots in Hamburg

We are bookworms through and through and have therefore teamed up with Enja Jans from the MOKA Magazin to introduce you to our favourite spots for reading in the Hanseatic city. MOKA is a beautiful print magazin that is dedicated to books of all subjects and published three times a year. MOKA ist available either at their online shop as well as a supplement in the magazine „flow” in selected parts of Germany. 

So whatever the weather or the season, here you will find an ideal spot where you can sit down with your favourite book and forget about time. 


The Lesesaal is our favourite bookstore in Hamburg and is conveniently located directly opposite our Ruby Lotti Hotel. No matter if you just want to browse a bit or if you prefer to sit down straight down to read, don't forget to pay this shop a visit.
