Public Holidays

Public holidays in Luxembourg

In terms of numbers, Luxembourg is quite reserved with public holidays. All important public holidays are also present in Luxembourg, but compared to other European countries, many of the Christian events are not public holidays. Even Good Friday is not a public holiday and is rather considered a national holiday. In addition, as in many other countries, Easter and Whit Sunday are not public holidays, as they fall on a Sunday anyway.

A pleasant arrangement: If a public holiday falls on a Sunday, it is compensated by a day off, which can be taken up to 3 months later.
