EU Short Stay Calculator - Use this to calculate how much time you can stay in the EU, sans visa

Here is a handy link to the official EU calculator for determining if you can stay longer in the EU / Schengen Travel Area without having a formal visa.

There are other 'rule of thumb' methods that are based on counting backwards from your planned dates and to include the dates you were previously in the Schengen Travel Area. But this is the official calculator likely used by the border authorities.
In addition, another Forum member, TiaValeria, contributed this bit, and asking to include it here. I am happy to oblige...

ALSO, “You are expected to have at least 6 months left on your passport and post Brexit the UK passport is valid for 10 years from the date of issue. The 'extra' months will no longer count. Many of us have passports that were issued dated from renewal application plus the remaining weeks or months to 10 years on from the original expiry date. (Eg a passport that expired Sept 2018, renewed June 2018, valid until September 2028, will only be accepted as valid until June 2028)

The UK passport validity checker is a very useful tool too. (Currently dated for travel after 31st October but the information is the same whatever.)...”
