ECARF-Allergy Seal for the new certification category municipalities

Travelling can be challenging in many ways for people with allergies in terms of health. For example, people with respiratory allergies may experience symptoms when exposed to animals or their hair.


People with food allergies need special menu options in order to prevent allergy symptoms when eating. In allergy-friendly municipalities, the local administration supports measures that improve the tourism infrastructure for visitors who suffer from allergies. There is a broad range of ECARF-certified accommodations and services available.

The ECARF Seal of Quality is granted to municipalities that fulfil the all criteria, just like Bad Salzuflen.


Thousands of certificateshave already been awarded since the first Seal of approval in 2006.The Allergy Seal is awarded by the ECARF Foundation.
