Subscribing to a calendar means you do not have to add a calendar each year and if holidays change, then the calendars will refresh weekly, so that your calendar always has the latest view. While there are public holiday calenders available in Outlook and Google Calendar, calenders from www.officeholidays.com offer extended information by showing regional holidays, highlighting non public holidays and giving a short description on each holiday.
Note - you are adding a region within Germany to your calendar. If you add another region in Germany to your calendar, it will duplicate national events in Germany. Soon we will offer regional only and national only options, so that you can add what you need, but for now, we recommend you use only one region per country to stop clogging up your calendar.

Users sometime report that subscribed calendars don't update in Google Calendar. We monitor the news on this issue and will happily reformat the feeds if we think that will improve the updating. One tip that is worth trying is to remove the calendar and add back with '&nocache' added to the url. (e.g. 'http://www.officeholidays.com/ics/ics_region_iso.php?region_iso=HE&tbl_country=Germany' becomes 'http://www.officeholidays.com/ics/ics_region_iso.php?region_iso=HE&tbl_country=Germany&nocache'
