Berlin - Like with any holiday (or Sunday), shops are going to close. Most of them, that is. This sparks the semi-annual holiday ritual of panic shopping among locals (which seems odd considering their knack for planning) and leads to pure panic among foreigners who have not yet developed the sixth Teutonic sense of when shops are open and closed. 

But we've got you covered with a directory of places that will still be open and that offer more than your neighbourhood Späti . You'll still be able to pull together some form of your favourite Easter dish at the last minute, like every other foreigner here, and grab some toiletries.

Remember: Saturday 3 April is a normal shopping day but otherwise mask up with FFP2 masks. Keep your distance. And be patient.
