Shopping can be a lot of fun – even we Germans talk about “shoppen”. Sometimes however shopping is a duty e.g. when the family is hungry and supper has to be on the table at a certain time. And shopping can be an unhappy experience e.g. if you are in a foreign country with foreign supermarkets and shops…
To help you relax and get on with what is important to you in your new surroundings here are a few tips and tricks: In general the shops in Germany are open between Mondays and Saturdays. On Sundays and public holidays they are closed.
However bakeries are open on Sunday mornings – opening hours are decided on an individual basis. But fresh “Brötchen” (rolls) are guaranteed.
Every supermarket has trolleys to help move goods from shop to car. To use these trolleys you have to pay a deposit of € 1, € 0,50, 2 € or use the so-called shopping trolley chip. In Germany no-one packs your groceries for you but shopping packets are for sale at the till.
Monday –Saturday: 08h00 – 20h00
Sunday & public holidays: closed
You can pay either in cash, an EC-card (in smaller shops only if the value exceeds a set amount) and credit card.
