Leisure Recreation and the Arts

Employees in the Federal Republic of Germany have the highest rate of leisure time of all Western countries; they spend just over 35 hours a week at work (4.5 days a week) and enjoy about 30 days of paid vacation. Nevertheless, Germans do not relax much; they are as busy in their leisure time as at work. Favorite pastimes are socializing at bars and visiting one of the numerous public festivals and funfairs. In the summer, sunbathing, water sports, and roller-blading are enjoyed, while in the winter, all kinds of winter sports are popular. In surveys of leisure-time activities, listening to music is often mentioned, while reading is only occasionally mentioned. Germans spend an average of 3-4 hours a day watching television and playing computer games. The latter attract more boys than girls. Men prefer to watch sports and women prefer to visit art galleries and attend seminars. Also, more women than men are involved in charities.
