Discover the most unusual bookstores in Paris

Paris has always been at the epicentre of literature, and today the capital still maintains its reputation as a bibliophile’s paradise thanks to a wealth of bookstores offering all kinds of lively and daring ideas. During your stay in Paris at the Hotel du Danube, you’ll be surprised by the unusual and even exotic bookstores awaiting your discovery!

 

A street kiosk becomes a high-end bookstore

This Parisian institution is worth the trip. Bolek looks like the kind of newsstand kiosk you can find throughout Paris, but it’s actually a bookstore. You won’t find newspapers here, but plenty of books to satisfy your appetite for reading.

 

A bookstore floating on the Seine

This barge moored in the Canal de l'Ourcq has a very appropriate name. L'Eau et les Rêves (Water and Dreams) welcomes you to its floating library, an immense collection of books dedicated to a maritime theme. Come aboard and browse today!

 

A bookstore hidden behind a carriage door

Hidden away, this secret bookshop in the 18th arrondissement is home to many wonders. Chez Les Libraires Associés gives pride of place to collector’s editions, rare items and the productions of independent publishers.

 

A bookstore that prints your book on the spot 

The concept? You sit and relax with a tea or coffee, savouring the moment, as the book you have chosen is printed! Unusual and innovative, it’s a charming new spin on the print on demand idea. Welcome to the Libraire des PUF (Presses Universitaires de France)!

 

Stay at the Hotel du Danube in Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Nestled in the heart of Paris, on the Left Bank, this charming three-star hotel is ready to be your home from home. Elegant and having a vintage vibe, this delightful establishment welcomes you for your Parisian stay. Book your room today and discover the capital’s most unusual bookstores!
