Retirees not living in Germany can not stay any more at Edelweiss, since the SOFA agreement was just renegotiated. No tours or use of facilities either. It has to do with the tax structure. However, retirees can still stay at KMCC on a space available basis, just like always – reservations may be made 3 days in advance.
