Auffahrt ( Ascension Day ) Thu 02.06 - will you be working ?

It says it is a special Sunday here - just 3 days before Father's Day.

As far as I know it is a holiday. The company I work for in Zurich will not be working that's for sure.

Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday. All off. Great! If the weather holds out I plan to spend some of it cycling around Lake Constance.

If the essays are double-spaced and you write comments in the margins of between the lines, then yes.

Father's day was in March (at least here).

Meanwhile, I think I'll work so I don't have to deal with the tourist invasion from up north.

Strange - the website mentioned June 5th as Father's Day. In any event, having come from a tropical country and having enough of the heat, will be heading north to Munich.

I'll be most surely working... on my sun tan... on the beautiful beaches of Greece!

About time I go see the ruins of the civilization that I had to study for 5 years!

Well, here (Ticino) and in Italy it's March 19, which is good as it's a public holiday and it's usually NOT on a Sunday!

Heading to Munich you'll experience the german Father's Day which is on Ascension Day. Many, many drunken guys.
