J.2 Private/Low Budget Accomodation

We are pleased to also offer the possibility to reserve accommodation in private households, until May 1, 1998. After that date DER-CONGRESS will not be able to guarantee that such rooms will be available. The prices per day are in the following range:

Single rooms from DM 62.- to 86.- incl. breakfast.
Double rooms from DM 86.- to 123.- incl. breakfast.
Apartments (double use) from DM 100.- to 150.- without breakfast.

Apartments and houses for more than two persons can be arranged on request.

The handling fee for the reservation in a private household is DM 30,- per person and will be charged by DER-CONGRESS.

Many of these rooms and apartments are equipped with TV and radio, and some also have a phone. However, most of the single and double rooms do not have a private bathroom. In this case the guests are usually sharing the bathrooms with their hosts. Apartments for two persons normally consist of one living/sleeping room, a kitchen, and a bathroom. At some apartments, you might have to pay a single fee of DM 40,- or 50,- for cleaning up after departure. In addition, some hosts would like to have a deposit in advance. Please be aware of the fact that some of the hosts may only be able to communicate in German.

A reservation form will be sent out by DER-CONGRESS upon receipt of the handling fee. Please fill in and return this form by fax or regular mail to DER-CONGRESS. The confirmation of reservation will be sent out directly afterwards, on which the address of the host is provided. To clarify all further details, such as time of arrival, payment conditions, etc. you should contact your host immediately after receipt. If you have not contacted your host four weeks prior to arrival at the latest, the reservation will be released without further notice.

Please understand that your host cannot process cheque or credit card payment, so kindly have cash ready on the day of arrival to cover the costs for the complete stay. Of course, pre-payment will be deducted.

Cancellations of private accommodation will be accepted free of charge until July 15, 1998. After that date the full amount for the stay is payable to the host if required. The handling fee cannot be reimbursed in any case.
