Vacations of the city administration between Christmas and New Year's Day

The Bonn City Administration will be closed from Tuesday, December 27, 2022, up to and including Friday, December 30, 2022. This is being done in order to reduce the amount of accruals for vacation and overtime - as has already been practiced in the past. It is also an active way for the city government to help conserve energy. The city administration will be available for emergencies.

Mayor Katja Dörner and the staff council have concluded an agreement to this effect. The last working day in 2022 will be Friday, December 23, 2022, and the first opening day in the new year will be Monday, January 2, 2023. But of course, various departments of the city administration, such as the fire and rescue service, senior centers, city order service or the sewage treatment plants, will be on duty over the holidays. 

The citizens' telephone is available for emergencies

During the vacations, it will not be possible to go to the authorities, but the city will still be available by telephone for emergencies, such as the registration of deaths or very urgent passport matters. From Tuesday, December 27, to Friday, December 30, citizens can contact the citizens' telephone of the city administration between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. at 0228 - 770.

For deaf or severely speech-impaired people there is the possibility on these days between 8 and 18 o'clock to turn to the sign telephone of the 115. In addition, they can send an e-mail or fax. All information is available here. 

This year's operating vacations consist of a compensatory day for Rose Monday on Tuesday, Dec. 27, and three days of operating vacations from Wednesday, Dec. 28, through Friday, Dec. 30, inclusive. Employees may take compensatory time off, recreational leave or unpaid leave for the ordered company vacations. 

Opening hours of the pools

The following opening hours apply to the Bonn baths: Until Friday, December 23, Beueler Bütt, Frankenbad and Hardtbergbad are open on a regular basis. From Christmas Eve, December 24, to Monday, December 27, 2022, inclusive, the pools will be closed. From Wednesday, December 28, to Friday, December 30, Frankenbad, Hardtbergbad and Beueler Bütt will open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. On New Year's Eve, December 31, and Sunday, January 1, Bonn's indoor pools will be closed.

For the rest of the vacations, from Monday, January 2, to Friday, January 6, 2023, the indoor pools will open regularly.
