which days are off in Christmas break?

How long is the christmas break for most of the companies and institutes in switzerland, and which day it begins? I know that ETH and UZH both have a christmas break from 22.12 to 2.1.

Universities and schools vary, in mine (public school, VD) it is Dec 22 till Jan 7, but different position in school admin will have different amount of days off work.

Re: which days are off in Christmas break?

Officially, only 25th, 26th December and 1st January are holidays.

some companies may have "bridge" days as well. Schools and universities might work a day or two during the year.

In many places January 2nd (Berchtoldstag) is also a holiday.
(Also watch for January 6th in a few cantons: Holy Three Kings holiday)

Actually, it depends on the canton, not the employer (though the employer can give more, but not less).

8, 25, 26 December, and 1, 6 January here.
