Shopping Dresden

Below we describe some of the most interesting shopping places. For most applies that they are closed on Sundays, so purchases plan on a weekday or Saturday. On weekdays will of course be less crammed, if you do not like crowds and prefer quiet, so I definitely recommend a weekday. On Sundays open only rarely. Throughout Saxony apply habit of so-called “selling Sunday” (German for “Verkaufsoffene Sonntag”), it is usually about four weeks a year (two are mostly advent). But beware, every city has Saxon terms these Sundays establishes itself, so they are different. They are often organized in the same term as the local festivities.


During Advent are interesting opportunities for shopping, not only those shopping centers, but also the Christmas market in Dresden.
