The city of Berlin is introducing the City Tax, a tourist tax on individual travellers, from 1 January 2014. The law was passed in December 2013 by the Berlin legislature. The decision to introduce a city tax in Berlin was a political one. visitBerlin did not request this tax; rather, it was introduced from within the Berlin Senate.
