A regular and very important questions from Parents in Germany :

Can I take my child on vacation outside of the school holiday periods?

As school attendance is compulsory, as a rule, the German government does not permit parents to take children on holiday during term-time. Parents who do so can be issued fines of up to 1.000 euros for enabling truancy. You can, however, apply to the headteacher at your child’s school for an exemption to legally take your children out of school before the start of the holidays.
