Where do music professionals like famous DJs and musicians buy their records? And where in Berlin can you find genuine vinyl records? The Top10 Berlin team has been looking for the best vinyl shops and records stores in the German capital. The range of music offered was important. As record store employees are considered rather grumpy, friendliness was taken in consideration as well and the nerd factor was included also. The result: In many small record shops music lovers will find good advice and real treasures away from the mainstream. Whether electro records from small labels from Iceland, metal or relaxed lounge or jazz - we hope you enjoy browsing through Berlin's best record shops!
