|Public Holidays of Luxembourg and Neighboring Countries|
Ever make a journey across the border to enjoy a meal or go shopping, only to find everything was closed because of a public holiday you didn't know about?
Or do you ever wonder if stores are open somewhere else when they are closed here?
To help sort out these questions, here is a chart showing all the public holidays in Luxembourg and neighboring areas. Note that even when stores and businesses are closed, restaurants may still be open (but not always). Call ahead to be sure.

*A note about Germany. There are national holidays (N) which apply to all of Germany and some regional holidays, mainly religious, which apply only in certain areas. The public holidays listed here include national holidays and only those regional holidays that apply to the Rhineland area (R), which includes Trier.
**Some of these regional holidays are also observed in other areas of Germany; and there are additional regional holidays - not all listed here - which are observed in parts of Germany, but not in Rhineland (Trier). For full details of national and regional public holidays in Germany, see the Germany National Tourist Office or the World Travel Guide web site.
