Public holidays in Austria 2021-2025
The amount of public holidays may be a little confusing. In fact, most of these are only recognised in individual Austrian provinces. In addition, although a holiday in Austria can be a legal one, it does not necessarily have to be a day off. For example, Good Friday or New Year's Eve are public holidays, but not days off under the Rest at Work Act. The situation is similar for most regional holidays.
As a Catholic country, Austria also has a whole series of Christian holidays. As in Switzerland, Easter Sunday and Pentecost Sunday are not public holidays simply because they are on a free Sunday anyway.Back to overview: Austria
