‪Best bookstore in Jerusalem‬
נוב׳ 2019 • לבד
‪There is the Strand in NYC, Halpers in Tel Aviv and Ludwig Mayer in Jerusalem! There sadly aren’t many good bookstores in Jerusalem, so this is the one a book lover should visit.
There are also two good ones in East Jerusalem, but they mostly sell political/history books.
LM has everything!‬

‪This may not be where you would go to find the latest best-seller but is is AMAZING what they do have. For my interests (History, local archaeology...) they are the best and I have never gone there without discovering something which I had previously not known existed even in my areas of interest. I have been going there since 2005.‬

‪May ruin your pleasure in books ‬
ספט׳ 2018 • לבד
‪When I read on Tripadvisor that I was near the best bookstore in Jerusalem I went there since is so close of Mamilla Hotel . It can not possibly be the best. In fact it is a used books store full and little organized with an unfriendly owner, little informative and little patient. Maybe he should just keep his business on internet. The whole time I was there I was the only customer. People looked around when I walked in and out. Nothing stops the door from making an explosive noise. The place reminds me of a number of people and places from my childhood whose purpose looked like be killing the pleasure of reading‬

‪Best bookshop in Jerusalem!‬
מרץ 2017 • עסקי
‪Every time I'm in Jerusalem I make a point of visiting Ludwig Mayer. It is without question the best bookshop in the city - no wonder they've been around since 1908! I mostly look at their books on history, archaeology, biblical studies, languages, and religion, but they have volumes on plenty of other subjects as well. Their selection of academic books and books for the thinking person is impressive. They have titles in German, French, English, and other languages (don't forget to look upstairs!).‬

‪Timeless book store‬
פבר׳ 2018 • לבד
‪Enjoyed the experience of perusing and purchasing at Ludwig Mayer, found the staff extremely knowledgeble and helpful. They were able to order a difficult to find book from the UK which arrived less than a week after. In the age of Amazon's , its nice to still have a good old fashioned specialist book seller in the heart of Jerusalem.‬

‪Gem of a Bookstore!)‬
ספט׳ 2017
‪It's dusty, it's cramped, it's old-fashioned – but it's a book-browser's paradise. True, some gadgets of modern technology have made their entry – first a fax machine, then two computers, and there are even plans for a web site. Despite it all, Jerusalem's oldest book shop is pervaded by an atmosphere of pre-war Europe, and the owners seem to be determined to keep it that way.
Founded in 1908 near Jaffa gate by Ludwig Mayer, a bookseller who hailed from Prenzlau, north of Berlin, "Israel's First quality Bookstore" (as it calls itself ambiguously) still occupies the premises it moved to in 1935 in the "New Armenian Buildings" on 4 Shlomzion Hamalka Street, right behind the Main Post Office.
As the two sons of Ludwig Mayer grew too old to run the store, the threat of closing this "landmark of Zionist history" was averted when a new owner took over at the end of the last century. It is hard to see, though, what impact this change of ownership has made on the way things are run. There might be a bit more space between the overcrowded bookshelves and slightly less danger to trip over the piles of books which seem to be everywhere, or over the parcels waiting to be shipped around the world, but the attempt to create more room for the customers is limited by the space available. Thus, the place still gets crowded when more than eight people at a time are looking for books.
More importantly, the character of "Ludwig Mayer (Jerusalem) Ltd." (the stores' full name) has not changed. It is first and foremost an academic bookstore, with a strong emphasis on the humanities, with books in Hebrew, English, German and French. Of course, you can also buy a street map of Jerusalem, but most people come for its large stock of scholarly publications on Archaeology, History, Jewish Studies, Linguistics, Gender Studies and Physics, its impressive collection of books on Philosophy or its selection of English and German translations of Hebrew authors.
And there is also the promise that, if the book you are looking for is not in stock, every effort will be made to find and order it for you. Because that same promise is made to those customers who do not visit the shop in person (and thus forgo a unique experience), but order their books by telephone, fax or e-mail, probably more books are sent abroad to university libraries, research institutions and private individuals, than are sold over the counter.

One last advice: not surprisingly, the store upholds an old Jerusalemite custom and is closed on Tuesday afternoons.‬
