Yes, Germans are so sloppy in this respect! ;-)

I usually follow the Dutch practice of "kommendes" for "this  
(coming)" and nächstes for "next" which should remove any ambiguity  
except, of course, that English isn't much better with the  
demonstrative pronoun referring equally to the coming weekend but  
also, on a Monday or a Tuesday, to the weekend just gone... ;-)
