Tourist Tax

Kandern is officially recognised as a resort for recreation. Local laws call for a spa tax to be levied to help bear the cost of keeping up tourist amenities including preservation of the countryside. This tax will be collected by your host at the rate of 1 € per person and day during the high season (march - october) with a reduction to 0,50 cent throughout the rest of the  year. Tourist Tax includes the day of arrival and departure. Children under 16 years of age are exempt.
