Where to buy German newspapers?

Hi,

Is there are particular retailer, or source, for one to purchase German newspapers, magazines, etc. in the US?

I contacted Barnes and Noble today looking for Der Spiegel, but they don't carry it. I thought they did.

Please let me know, thanks!

Do they have to be in print format? Try digital versions. Here the link to the online Spiegel:

Spiegel.de

I would bet most other German newspapers and magazines have similar obvious URLs.

The digital version is very different from the print version, though, they have a separate editorial staff. You would need to go for the e-paper version to get to the real stuff: http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/

I don't know what the situation is like in the US, but here in Germany, we can buy international newspapers at railway stations (of big cities) and airports.

Otherwise, I agree with Jileha: Online, you should find a lot of newspapers. Here's die Zeit: https://www.zeit.de/index

Frankfurter Allgemeine: http://www.faz.net/aktuell/

You can also google for interesting topics, using German words. For example: "Trump Korea Absage", which leads, among others, to this Swiss newspaper: https://www.nzz.ch/international/trumps-korea-show-erhaelt-eine-weitere-episode-ld.1389323

I hope this helps. :-)

Do you have any authentic German restaurants or stores in or near your area? Sometimes you can find print newspapers in the language of the country a certain store or restaurant is associated with through the ownership or by imports. I’ve picked up Korean magazines in a Korean restaurant in the US before, and my dad has found newspapers in other languages for me in a city, so I imagine that if you search enough, you could find a similar German restaurant or store if you live in suburbia or in a city.
