The Book Forest / Free books on the street in Berlin
Sitting in the sun, reading a book? Something we should bring to your attention again, now that summer is approaching 🙂
Exchange a good read with the world in Berlin!
Should you take a stroll in Prenzlauer Berg district in Berlin (and you definitely should!), look for the “Book Forest” at the junction Kolwitzstraße / Sredzkistraße. It’s a public bookcase made of fallen tree trunks, where you can always find a good read for your next coffee break. It’s for free.
BAUFACHFRAU came up with this project in 2006. It was intended as a temporary idea to make free books available to the public, but people simply loved it so much, that you can still find it nowadays. Of course you can also place a book there yourself and even track its journey on Bookcrossing.
Who knows which continent your newly found book is coming from:-)
