School Holidays Denmark

In Denmark the fixed school holiday dates are discontinued. The government determines only the start date for the summer holiday. Besides the summer holiday schools may decide when they schedule school holidays and days off during the school year. As a result, there is no 100% determined date when the school holidays take place in Denmark. The tables below show the general, most common situation.

In general, the "winter" holiday (spring break) is scheduled in week 7/8. The autumn at week 42. There is no official construction industry holiday in Denmark, but most of the industry is closed the first three weeks of July. Many schools have also been closed for several days around Ascension and Pentecost.
