City Tax Berlin

From 1 April 2024, there will be a change to the City Tax. From 1 April 2024, overnight stays for professional and business purposes will no longer be exempt from City Tax as before. Exceptions are business trips that were legally agreed before 1 April 2024.

Private travellers have already been paying an overnight tax in Berlin since 1 January 2014. The law was passed by the Berlin House of Representatives in December 2013. The decision to introduce a city tax in Berlin is a political decision. It is not the responsibility of visitBerlin, but of the Berlin Senate.

The City Tax applies to all commercial and private overnight stays. Further information can be found on the website of the Berlin Senate (in German). Here you will also find a guide in the download area that will inform you about the details and possible exceptions.
