School holidays

The Dutch divide their school holidays into three different regions; north, central and south. As a result, Dutch schools are never all on holiday at the same time, meaning holiday hotspots are less crowded. However, the main school holidays are:

  • Spring break (generally 1 week)
  • May holidays (1 or 2 weeks)
  • Summer holidays (6 weeks)
  • Autumn holidays (1 week)
  • Christmas holiday (2 weeks)

National holidays

Like any other country, The Netherlands has a number of national holidays. Some dates differ per year such as Easter and Pentecost. Not every school or employer honours all holidays but the following are mandatory:

  • New Year’s Day – January 1st
  • Good Friday – Friday before Easter
  • Easter Sunday and Easter Monday
  • Kings Day – April 27th
  • Liberation Day – May 5th
