Holidays and Observances in Switzerland

All the Holidays in Switzerland information below, will give the 2017 Date, Holiday Name, and Holiday Type. Ultimately, we will have a Daily Holidays Page for each of the Days of the Year, and a devoted page for each of the Holidays and Observances.  Pages completed will be linked up below once they are done.

If a Holiday does not have 2017 after it below, that means that it is observed annually on the same day.  Those with 2017 listed after the date, are movable holidays that are observed on different days each year.
