The more vacation days working people have available for this, the better.

economist

Salary.de

, summarized the study results.

If you want to get more vacation days, you should tend to

look for a larger employer

and be open to the industry.

If you don't want to change, there is at least a little consolation left: The vacation days also increase with increasing professional experience.
