Hurray! Finally there’s a German bookshop in Cape Town again, albeit online. Gruffel.com allows you to order German books anywhere in South Africa and ships them to you. Or allows you to pick up your books at the German School or at the kindergarten.
Select from the Spiegel bestseller lists, fiction and non-fiction as well as children’s books, as well as most recently newly published works. If it’s in print, it’s probably available. Gruffel is based in Cape Town, so you pay in South African Rand by bank transfer, they take care of tax, customs and excise.
