Is there an addon for german holidays? Or: If I give you a list, can anyone make an addon?

You mean for the calendar entries ? 

You can add them with manage holidays area, granted that can get to be tedious if its one of those the first Monday after a full moon on leap years kind of one.

Otherwise you can add them with phpmyadmin with something like
Code: [Select]
INSERT INTO elkarte_calendar_holidays
(title, event_date)
VALUES ('Weizenbier Day', '0004-01-02'),
('Hefeweizen Day', '0004-01-03'),
('Märzen Day', '0004-01-04'),
('Doppelbock Day', '0004-01-05'),
('Bock and Bratwurst Day', '0004-01-06')
use 0004 for ones that are the same date each year, or if its a moving target you have to add it for each entry like
Code: [Select]
	('Winter Solstice', '2014-12-21'),
('Winter Solstice', '2015-12-21'),
('Winter Solstice', '2016-12-21'),
('Winter Solstice', '2017-12-21')

Depending on the federal state you live in, there are between 9 and 13 public holidays in Germany every year. Public holidays in Germany include national holidays, of which there are only two, as well as religious holidays and secularized holidays with a religious background.
