Shopping hours & Sunday shopping

Information about shop opening hours and Sunday shopping in Berlin.

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, eight specific Sundays each year on which shops are allowed to open.

Shopping hours Monday to Saturday

Shops, department stores, shopping malls and supermarkets are usually open between 08:00 or 09:00 and 20:00 or 21:00 from Mondays to Saturdays. Some supermarkets open their doors at 07:00 and close at 22:00 or even midnight.

Please note: On Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve all shops close at 14:00 (when not a Sunday).

Sunday shopping
