Original cover

Endlich Urlaub! (also known as Endlich Urlaub) is the first solo album from the German musician Farin Urlaub (guitarist of Die Ärzte), released in 2001. It features the typical humour and overall music style fans of Die Ärzte are used to but is more diverse and experimental. The title translates to Vacation at last, or, seeing as this was his first solo effort, Urlaub at last.

The album originally had a cover featuring Farin walking away from a building that he had implicitly set on fire. The idea was dropped following the September 11 attacks.
