-Discounted entrance fees to many museums in Wernigerode and the Harz district, discounts on purchases made in shops in Wernigerode as well as discounts at many of our restaurants and bars.

To take advantage of these offers ask the host at your place of accommodation for your tourist tax booklet called "Wernigerode ticket". The tourist tax rate is € 2.50 (including VAT/GST) per person per night. A reduction in or exemption from tourist tax payment is possible for concessions and in certain circumstances.
