Switzerland

Accurate, up-to-date public holidays, bank holidays, and observances in Switzerland for 2021 ready to be integrated into your application.

Where western, central, and southern Europe meet, is the country officially known as the Swiss Confederation. This land locked country is divided by the Alps, and is located at the crossroads of Germanic and Romance Europe. Switzerland was established as a country on August 1, 1291. In 1648, Switzerland became independent from the Holy Roman Empire. Switzerland’s policy of armed neutrality dates back to the 16th century, and has not fought in a war since 1815. Switzerland is the birthplace of one of the world’s best known humanitarian organizations, the Red Cross.
