From the first 1st of July 2015 the Accommodation Tax
for the city of Dresden comes into force in the state capital for private travel. According to the new regulations of the already existing tourism tax, the hotels in the city are obliged to levy the new tourism tax directly from the guests at the hotel, and pass on to the city of Dresden. The required payment is scaled according to the accommodation price including the value-added tax. Extra costs such as breakfast, dinner, etc. are excluded from the tax.
