European Airports over New Year Holidays

We are planning a trip to France to see the family. To take advantage of really good prices/and coincide with vacation time we are looking at flying on the 31st of December or 1st of January. With a European layover (Germany?)

Does anyone have any experience flying during these holidays. While I know from living there that shops and such are shut; what about airport services, shops, restaurants, currency exchange, SIM card kiosks, and public transportation like trains airport busses/shuttles.

Airport shops, restaurants etc. will be open. Some of them shut down for the pm of Dec 31st and open later on Jan 1st but you will be provided with the basics. Restaurants are open outside of the airports as well. Trains and busses run on special holiday schedules which means limited service but there will be service.
