The federal states of Germany have agreed on common rules when planning vacations. For a long time, this was based on the so-called Hamburg Agreement, but a new country agreement has been in effect since February 2021. It stipulates that school holidays last for a total of 75 working days, including Saturdays during the holiday period.

The Conference of Ministers of Education sets the dates for the six-week summer vacation for the federal states. It should always fall between June 20 and September 15, but it should start and end differently from state to state. This should benefit tourism and enable travel in Germany.

Why is there no school on the Day of Penance and Prayer in Bavaria?

Students don’t just spend their holidays – after all, there are more public holidays in Bavaria than in any other federal state. There is also no school on the Day of Repentance and Prayer, although it has not been a public holiday since 1995.

The reason for this is the right of employees in Bavaria to take leave for religious reasons on the day of prayer and prayer. No day off shall be taken for this purpose, but the day off shall be deducted from wages. In order for teachers to be able to exercise this right like everyone else, classes are generally canceled on this day.
