In Germany, the opening times of supermarkets and other retail stores are by law.[1] Regulations are different between the states.

But what is the same in all states: On Sundays and public holidays, most (bigger) shops and supermarkets are closed.

However, there are exceptions, mostly for supermarkets at train stations. See here lists of open supermarkets by cities:


  1. "In the Federal Republic of Germany, the Ladenschlussgesetz or "Shop Closing Law" (abbreviated: LadSchlG) is the federal law regulating at which times retail stores were forced to be closed to the public." – source, retrieved 2022-05-08
