Father's Day in Germany

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.
