Amsterdam raises tourist tax to highest in Europe

Oct 01, 2019 13:33 IST

From next year onwards, Amsterdam will be asking for more money from its visitors, making the 'tourist tax' the highest in Europe. It will levy a tax of €3 or approximately Rs 230 per person per night for travelers staying overnight in hotels in addition to the 7% on room rate that is currently charged. Overtourism has plagued the Dutch capital, with over 18 million flocking to the city annually.
