Sunday opening, Tuesday closing

A quick warning which may affect your shopping plans over the next few days: Sunday October 1st is a verkaufsoffener Sonntag in Berlin, which means shops are allowed to open. Generally the shopping centers / malls and the department stores will be open, as well as many of the shops in the main shopping areas.

There's no silver lining without the matching cloud however: Tuesday October 3rd is Tag der Einheit ("Unification Day"), which is a public holiday, meaning all shops, banks etc. will be closed. The only exceptions will be those with special permission to open outside of the general rules: see ourguide to out of hours shopping for details.
