AUSTRIA

Tourismusgesetz and Beherbergungsbeiträge are just two of a plethora of terms Austria uses for accommodation taxes. The name and how much is levied varies across Austria's nine provinces.

The tax is payable on overnight accommodation (including caravans/campsites), currently ranging from €0.15 to €2.18 per person per night. For a quick overview refer to pages 24 and 25 of this pdf: Inventory of taxes
