Information about shop opening hours and Sunday shopping in Berlin.

From small boutiques to large shopping malls and bustling high streets: Berlin's shopping opportunities are rich and diverse. From Monday to Saturday, there are practically no legal regulations restricting the shopping hours, which means that shops are permitted to open at any time. On Sundays and public holidays, shops are generally closed. There are, however, up to eight specific Sundays each year on which shops are allowed to open.

Shop Opening Hours: Monday to Saturday

From Monday to Saturday, shops, department stores, malls and supermarkets are usually open between 8, 9 or 10 AM and 8, 9 or 10 PM. Some supermarkets already open their doors at 7 AM. On Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve, all shops close at 2 PM (when not a Sunday).

Sunday Shopping

Except for a few select supermarkets in large train stations, shops in Berlin generally remain closed on Sundays. Exceptions are made on specific Shopping Sundays. Shops are allowed to open on eight fixed Sundays per year, two of which are during Advent. In addition, shops may open for special occasions on two Sundays or holidays per year. Opening hours on Shopping Sundays are usually 1 PM to 6 PM.
