From small boutiques in cosy quarters to large shopping centres in bustling high streets: Berlin's shopping landscape is 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.
