Stad Brugge levies a lodging tax of €2.83 (excluding VAT) per person and per night.
This tax applies to all accommodation (hotels, guest rooms, hostels,...) with the exception of holiday homes which are taxed at a flat rate. Children under 18 are exempted from the tax. If the accommodation is subject to VAT and opts to pass on the tourist tax separately to the customer, which is internationally common practice, then VAT (currently 6%) will be added to the tax.
From 1/1/2023, the flat tax rate for room-related accommodation (hotels, guest rooms, hostels, room-related accommodation) will be €3.75 (excluding VAT) per person per night and for site-related accommodation (campsites) €1.5 (excluding VAT) per person per night.
