It's a pain but it's worth it. (I like cilantro)
You're in a fairly cool climate and I now how much Germans like their window boxes :-) Have you considered growing it yourself?

I used cilantro for awhile, putting a bouquet in the kitchen window to pick on.

I dug some up and brought it in a couple years ago. It looked pretty ratty, but tasted good. Same with the basil.

We can get cilantro pretty cheap here, so no reason to dig it up and bring it inside anymore. Not so much with the basil, which is hard to find fresh.

It's available everywhere.
I have to agree it is very widely available, but I do like it, so I am happy with this situation

Coriander would be a good substitute

Fresh coriander and cilantro are the same thing.
