Brückentage 2019: How to get a lot of holidays out! 🏖

Those who cleverly use the Bridge Days 2019 will travel twice as long: In the coming year, all major public holidays will fall on weekdays.

Brückentage 2019: Well planned, long recovered

Anyone planning well in 2019 can look forward to many long weekends . Because the nationwide holidays fall in the coming year, all on weekdays – usually on Tuesday or Thursday, so that you can pull out the weekend properly with only one day’s holiday!

New Year

New Year (ie the 1st of January) falls on a Tuesday in 2019. Monday is therefore a real day of the bridge – who takes leave on Monday, gets four days off at a stretch. Maybe your employer is so nice to release you on New Year’s Eve anyway.


Of course we have 4 days off every Easter . The good thing about 2019, however, is that unlike the previous year, Easter is late. In 2018, Good Friday was still in the cold March, 2019 Easter is celebrated from 19 to 22 April. So the chances for spring temperatures are pretty good! ☀️

If you submit your holiday in Holy Week and Holy Week, you will enjoy 2 free weeks – and you only have to sacrifice 8 days instead of 10 days.

Labor Day

May 1 will fall on a Wednesday in 2019. Means: If you take Monday and Tuesday or Thursday and Friday, enjoy five days off with just two days off. Great for a first trip to the south.

If you combine Easter with Labor Day, you will get even 3 complete weeks for 10 (instead of 15) holidays!

Ascension of Christ

Ascension will fall on May 30, 2019, this is a Thursday . Friday will be a classic day of the bridge: If you only submit one day of holiday, you will get 4 days off.

And those who combine Ascension with Whitsun can travel for a long time …


Whit Monday falls on the 10th of June. Who takes 4 days a week, has 7 days vacation. If you combine Pentecost with Ascension, you can leave for 6 days for 12 days.

Day of German unity

Also great: The Day of German Unity on October 3, 2019 will be celebrated on a Thursday . A clear case for a bridging day: If you submit a Friday holiday, you can lie down on your lazy skin for 4 days. Or make the first autumn walks.


The Christmas holidays fall in the middle of the year in 2019. The 25th of December falls on a Wednesday, the 26th on a Thursday. If you only take Friday off, you get 5 days to celebrate, eat and sit together. 🎄
