Dear guests,

please understand that from 01.01.2019 we as the operator of your accommodation are obliged to collect the guest tax and to have the official registration form of the city of Leipzig completed and signed by you.

The guest tax serves to partially finance the tourist infrastructure. All persons who spend the night in the city of Leipzig must pay.

The guest tax is EUR 3.00 per person and day of stay, arrival and departure days are calculated as one day.

The guest tax is reduced to EUR 1.00 per person and day of stay if the overnight stay fee is no more than EUR 30.00 including VAT.
