Shops are closed on sundays, from monday to saturday it is 07/08.00 - 19/20.00 for supermarkets, 10.00 - 19/20.00 for department stores, smaller shops often close earlier.

The shops at the new main train station might be open on Sundays, apart from that there are only a few supermarkets which are open on a Sunday. E.g. a big one next to the Zoo station.

Berlin has changed on the 9th November 2006 the opening hours law.

From 27th November 2006 on shops can stay open 24 hours on weekdays. On Sundays shops will stay still be closed with a few exceptions, e.g. at the 4 sundays in Advent (the 4 sundays before Christmas) shops can stay open from 1pm to 8pm.

How far the new rules will be used by the shops is something else. Time will show.
