General Information

Dear participants,

The City of Freiburg introduced a tourist tax by 1 January 2014. In consequence of which hotels in Freiburg are obligated to collect this tax and to pay it to the City of Freiburg.

This tax obligation is 5% of the hotel room rate (excluding breakfast) and is due for all overnight stays if you come to Freiburg as a tourist. The tax does not apply if your travel is for business reasons.

Therefore please specify in your reservation that the travel reason is to attend the Macromolecular Colloquium (you may use your registration confirmation to prove it) in order to avoid this tax.
