Local taxes/Visitor taxes

Without these overnight stay duties your holiday might not be what it ultimately is: An experience for all the senses - from the first to the last day. It also finances traditional methods of advertising for the holiday region, that may have brought Brixental Valley to your attention. And: Quality is important to us.
