You can expect on most holidays that all shops and supermarkets are closed. There’s no need to fret, as you can still find supermarkets and shops like Rossman and DM open. Read our Sunday shopping in Berlin guide for more details.

That’s a wrap on the public holidays in Berlin for this year. We hope you enjoy all of them to the fullest!
