I was wondering if there is a 'Minhag Ashkenaz' siddur presently in print. I have an older one at home, but it has sentimental value and as a university student, I would rather avoid using such a siddur on campus. I typically use a Siddur Rinat Yisrael, but tachanun and birchot hashachar are different from the German variant.

I have been compiling a German siddur for the past fifteen years. It is currently available on www.thebookpatch.com:

Here is a link to my siddur which is currently available on www.thebookpatch.com thebookpatch.com/… – Rallis Wiesenthal Jan 20 '14 at 4:00
@RallisWiesenthal, is this identical to Siddur Sefas Yisroel on Open Siddur? – Noach MiFrankfurt Feb 20 '14 at 19:38

This 2011 link to the Siddur Tefillas Yeshurun metioned by yitznewton may be valuable to sign up for the new edition. You can also contact www.kayj.net

You ask for printed editions. The following are available online. You could print what you wanted I suppose.

  1. A Category at the Wikimedia Commons for scanned works of Wolf Heidenheim, including a full set of mahzorim and many editions of his siddur: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Wolf_Heidenheim
  2. A Category at the Wikimedia Commons for scanned works of Seligman Baer, including two scans of Avodat Yisrael and one of Kinnot: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Seligman_Baer

Siddur Sfat Emet (known as the Rödelheim siddur) is in-print and available for sale here: http://www.booksnbagels.com/eng/productinfo.php?id=9708

This siddur is not the correct Minhag Ashkenaz. There are many mistakes in the Sfas Emes Siddur. Also, the Birkas HaMinim is the post-censored version. Hashiva Shofteinu has an extra word and there are several spelling mistakes throughout the siddur. – Joshua Pearl May 29 '15 at 8:50
