Art Supplies in Berlin

Need a new pencil?

We have compiled a list of art supply stores in Berlin based on our experience and the recommendations of our students. We hope this will help you find what you are looking for.

If you don’t see your favorite shop listed here, send me a message. Thanks!

1. Boesner

This is the largest art supply store in Berlin with the best selection of paints and brushes. Unlike most of our other recommendations, they are big and corporate – but if you want a one stop solution to your painting and drawing needs this is probably your best bet. But don’t go there expecting help or advice on what to buy.

Boesner Berlin-Prenzlauerberg

Marienburger Str. 16, 10405 Berlin

Boesner Berlin-Neukölln

Karl-Marx-Straße 110, 12043 Berlin

Boesner Berlin-Marienfelde

Nunsdorfer Ring 31, 12277 Berlin

Boesner Berlin-Charlottenburg

Franklinstraße 12, 10587 Berlin


2. Planet Modulor

Located at Moritzplatz, Modular is a wonderland of design and architecture paraphernalia! Definitely worth a visit, but not the best place for fine art supplies. Their selection of paints, brushes, etc… is limited and expensive. But if you are looking for a notebook, and excellently designed paperclip, a model making material you never new existed, or need to get something laser cut, go here.

Planet Modulor

Prinzenstraße 85, 10969 Berlin


3. Peters Art

Located in Wedding and specializing in painting supplies. Their website is quite good and if you know what you want, they will deliver orders over 120 euro. They also make custom size canvases. Used by many professional artists in the city. 

Peters Art (available to order online!!)

Gottschedstraße 26, 13357 Berlin


3. CYM Kunst- und Zeichnenbedarf

Located in “Kreuzkölln,” this is a cute little shop specializing in drawing and painting supplies. They are usually happy to advise you on what to buy and prices are reasonable. The Planufer store is generally more for drawing and Dieffenbachstr. is more for painting. But it’s just a short walk between the two locations if you need to visit both.
