School Vacations in Germany

Updated - July 2021

German schools' vacation dates are determined at the state level. The individual German states are responsible for their education systems.

The vacation days will usually differ from state to state. There may be some overlap. Different beginning and ending days ensure that the German highways, rail system and airports are not overwhelmed with vacationing families at the same time.
