(JB) Workers in Luxembourg wishing to make their holiday allowance go further in 2017 are in luck as five public holidays fall around weekends.

According to, the official portal of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, five public holidays will fall on either a Monday or Friday this year.

The next will be Easter Monday, on April 17.

If that is not enough, people may choose to “bridge” a weekend, a popular practice in Luxembourg whereby employees will take off a Monday or Friday to benefit from a public holiday on the Thursday or Tuesday.

During 2017, there will be three opportunities to do this, with the first on the weekend after Ascension on Thursday, May 25.
