Taxes & Refunds

Each of the islands charges a resort tax (Kurtaxe or Kurbeitrag), allowing beach entry and offering small discounts for museums, transport etc. Typically around €2 to €3 per day, it’s simply added to your hotel bill. For day trips, it may (or may not) be included with your ferry ticket – look on each island's tourist information website for more details.

Travellers with Disabilities

Due to varying levels of infrastructure each island will have different barrier-free options. Contact the tourist office on the island you're interested in to find out more about accessible travel there.

Tourist Information
