Holidays and store hours

At the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität there are no classes or courses between December 24 and January 6. For Semester dates please see the LMU site Kommende Vorlesungszeiten (upcoming lecture periods: beginning and ending).

In addtion to the national holidays, there are many holidays in Munich that are specific to Bavaria. Store hours may be somewhat different in Munich than other German cities. 

In general, stores (such as grocery stores) are open until 8pm (20:00) and closed on Sundays and holidays. Bank hours usually have even more limited hours, often closing mid-day. Public transportation, restaurants and some other services may have a limited schedule on Sundays or holidays.
