Shopping Hours in the Netherlands

Information on opening hours and the regulations for Sunday shopping in the Netherlands…

Retail stores in the Netherlands can often have four or five different schedules of opening hours in a week. Many shops in the larger cities are open on Sundays and those that aren’t will usually open for one Sunday per month (typically the first  Sunday).

Shops often offer shorter opening hours on Monday, with many not opening until 12:00 or 13:00.

The majority of shops open at 09:00-10:00 from Tuesday to Saturday and, where applicable, 12:00 on Sunday. Typical closing time is 18:00 (17:00 on Sunday).

Larger municipalities offer one late shopping day per week on Thursday or Friday. On those days, shops remain open until 21:00.

These general opening hours are strictly adhered to by shopping centres and malls.
