- PH Public Holiday, can be used to indicate different opening hours during public holidays (e.g., Mo-Fr 09:00-17:00; PH 10:00-12:00; PH Su off)
- The above example means normal hours are monday to friday 9am to 5pm, except on public holidays it is 10am to 12pm, except public holidays that fall on a Sunday.
The general syntax for the value is: hh:mm-hh:mm (e.g., > 08:30-20:00)
The general syntax for the value is: wd hh:mm-hh:mm (e.g., > Fr 08:30-20:00)
The general syntax for the value is: mo md hh:mm-hh:mm (e.g., > Dec 25 08:30-20:00)
The general syntax for the value is mo-mo: wd hh:mm-hh:mm (e.g. Jun-Aug: Su 10:30-16:00 to specify the opening times on Sundays in June, July and August. Note the colon, mentioned under "Calendar Ranges" here).
The general syntax for the value is: week we wd hh:mm-hh:mm (e.g., > week 25 Mo 08:30-20:00)
- Consecutive hours [always needs open-close] separated by "-" · (e.g., > 08:30-20:00)
- Consecutive weekdays open separated by "-" · (e.g., > Mo-Fr)
- Consecutive monthdays open separated by "-" · (e.g., > Dec 20-26) or (e.g., > Dec 20-Jan 06)
- Open with periodicity "n" within a range of consecutive monthdays, the range is followed by "/n" (e.g., > 02-30/n)
- Consecutive weeks open separated by "-" · (e.g., > week 01-26)
- Open with periodicity "n" within a range of consecutive weeks, the range is followed by "/n" ( e.g.> week 02-52/n )
- A break on days separated by "," · (e.g., > Mo,We,Fr)
- A break on hours separated by "," · (e.g., > 08:30-14:00,16:30-20:00)
- Different hours on different days are separated by ";" (e.g., > Mo 10:00-12:00,12:30-15:00; Tu-Fr 08:00-12:00,12:30-15:00; Sa 08:00-12:00)
- reads as: this opening hours for this days ; this opening hours for this days
- A weekday off will be tagged as "wd off" (e.g., > Tu off)
- A range of weekdays off will be tagged as "wd-wd off" (e.g., > Tu-Th off)
- A month off will be tagged as "mo off" (e.g., > Aug off )
- A range of months off will be tagged as "mo-mo off" (e.g., > Aug-Sep off)
- A monthday off will be tagged as "mo md off" (e.g., > Dec 25 off)
- A range of monthdays off will be tagged as "mo md-md off" (e.g., > Dec 24-26 off) or "mo md - mo md off" (e.g., > Dec 25-Jan 06 off )
- Exceptions to a range of days, first the range then the exception (e.g., > Mo-Sa 10:00-20:00; Tu off) or (e.g., > Mo-Sa 10:00-20:00; Tu 10:00-14:00) (this means these are not additions, for example Mo-Fr 08:00-12:30; We 14:00-17:00 means that on Wednesdays, the shop is only opened in the afternoons and not additionally)
- If it is in the first or last day of a range then don't use the exception rule, use the usual (e.g., > Mo-Fr 10:00-20:00; Sa 10:00-14:00)
- Non-consecutive or semi-consecutive days of the week will be tagged as wd[x] (e.g., Su 09:00-12:00)
- This is used to indicate the 3rd Sunday of the month from 9am to 12pm.
- Use -1 to indicate the last day of the month; e.g., Aug Th[-1] means last Thursday in July.
- Can use grouping, (e.g., Su[1,3,5] and Su[1-3])
- If hours are non stop some days then (e.g., > 00:00-24:00)
- If it is 24 hours 7 days a week it has a specific value: 24/7
- this way it can render a specific icon.
- A special time value to mark the time the sun rises is: sunrise.
- A special time value to mark the time the sun sets is: sunset.
- A + behind a time means "from" or "open end" (e.g., Sa 22:00+)
This is my second try on an implementation:
- formal specification
- online evaluation
- Maps showing nodes with opening_hours:
- opening_hours (erroneous one only – quality assurance), only objects which are open just now)
- collection_times (erroneous one only – quality assurance), point in time today, point in time this week)
- service_times (erroneous one only – quality assurance), point in time today, point in time this week)

- PHP code in SVN to parse opening_hours.
- Services_Openstreetmap, a PEAR PHP package for working with the OSM API, supports parsing a wide range of Opening Hours syntax - with examples here.
Just in the case of 24/7 it can be something like adding a 24 to the object icon.
The rest of values have no rendering and should be accessed with context menu or alike.
OsmAnd uses this tag in the POI search screen. The colour of the arrow changes when the POI is open, closed or the state is unknown. The implementation is only partial, currently no dates, weeknumbers or holidays are supported, But most values should get parsed.
Opening hours for Ulm, Neu-Ulm & surroundings
The web application is available on http://oeffnungszeiten.ulmApi.de. Opening hours for the local area are visualized on a map. The source code of this application is freely licensed and available via GitHub. Adapting the application to a different city is very easy and described on the GitHub page.
- JOSM/Plugins/OpeningHoursEditor - a graphical editor for the opening_hours tag
- Key:access - time restrictions
- Conditional restrictions - using opening_hours syntax for time-based conditions
- Key:lit - Artificial light sources
- Key:collection_times - for post boxes and recycling points
- Key:service_times - for churches and other Tag:amenity=place_of_worship
- Key:smoking_hours - for times when smoking is allowed indoors
- Values can be set as default. Default is a proposal for a default values system. This proposal can set default values such as maxspeed for areas (countries, states...) but also holidays periods. A country, a zone area can subscribe to a default containing such holidays definitions.
