Our Room Rates

By Fassbind don’t publish any pricelist anymore. The best available rate of the day is always changing according to the occupancy. Like in the airline industry, we publish a dynamic price determined by the demand and the remaining capacity in our hotels for the demanded date. Use our web booking engine where you’ll find a guaranteed best price available on the market. Our customers will find prices significantly decreased especially during low seasons and weekends. However, once the rooms at promotional prices are sold out, they are no longer available and higher prices might apply. Guests who book in advance or for longer stays will be the most likely to benefit from these promotional rates. The clients are the winner of this price policy.
