This year May 1st falls on a Wednesday. Therefore, almost all businesses are closed, but there are exceptions. FOCUS Online has outlined for you where and until when you can shop.

May 1 is a public holiday throughout the Federal Republic. Therefore, shops generally remain closed. However, there are some exceptions to this rule: If you absolutely have to buy a few things for the refrigerator on Labor Day, there's a good chance you'll find what you're looking for, especially in big cities. There are several supermarkets here that are open 365 days a year.

FOCUS Online shows you an overview of where you can buy food in major German cities on May 1:
