Father's Day in Germany

Father’s Day is celebrated worldwide to recognize the contribution that fathers and father figures make to the lives of their children. This day celebrates fatherhood and male parenting. Although it is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide, many countries observe this day on the third Sunday in June.

Is Father's Day a Public Holiday?

Although Father's Day is not a public holiday, businesses and schools may be closed because it falls on the same date as Ascension Day in 2019.
