Public Holidays in Germany

Planning a trip to Germany?... don't forget to think about the dates of the German public or bank holidays.

Most public holidays in Germany are of religious origin with some celebrated only by the Protestant Church and others only by the Catholic Church.

The observance of these traditional public holidays therefore varies according to the federal state of Germany you are in. See below for this list of national holidays in Germany.
