Wiesbaden spa fee
The City of Wiesbaden implemented a spa fee. The spa fee is EUR 3,00 per guest per night. Contact the City of Wiesbaden for more information about the tax basis and exemptions or check the information page the City provides for Hosts and guests.
Collection and payment
As of April 1, 2021, Airbnb automatically collects the spa fee and pays it to the city on behalf of Hosts when a guest books a listing in Wiesbaden. The spa fee will be listed separately in the invoice and added to the total amount.
In previous years, Hosts had to collect the fee themselves.
Visit this information page or contact the City of Wiesbaden directly if you have more questions about the spa fee.
