Public Holidays in Switzerland in 2019

Swiss culture and traditions are largely reflected in the festivals and holidays celebrated in a year. While there are some Swiss holidays observed across the nation, certain religious holidays and local holidays are only observed in some cantons and regions around Switzerland. Many Swiss holidays are religious and thus usually observed only in the cantons where Catholicism is the main religion. All public holidays in Switzerland are days off for the general population. Offices, banks, schools and businesses are closed. Public transport runs on a reduced schedule. Here we have provided below dates for public holidays celebrated in Switzerland.
