Advantages of the spa card and information on spa tax

Dear guests, welcome to the seaside resort of Warnemünde!

Kurkarte und KurabgabeOn this page, we would like to provide you with exact information about the spa tax, which is payable in the Rostock seaside resort areas (as in all other German spa and health resorts).

If you have decided on a holiday in the seaside resorts of Diedrichshagen, Warnemünde, Hohe Düne or Markgrafenheide, you will receive your spa card from your landlord on arrival.

The amount of spa tax is calculated daily, for the duration of your stay. The days of arrival and departure are combined and count as one day. Children up to 16 years do not pay any spa tax. The discounts apply to school pupils, trainees, students and severely disabled people.

You pay the spa tax directly to your landlord, who then sends it to the tourist board for Rostock & Warnemünde.

This funds the following services amongst other things:

  • Cleaning and upkeep of beach and promenade
  • Lifeguard services
  • Safety on the beach
  • Cultural events

As a thank you for your contribution, you will receive the exclusive discount book from your landlord, with numerous coupons for retail, gastronomy or leisure facilities. You can find a list of partners with the relevant services below.


Furthermore, your spa card gives you free/discounted use of:

  • The beach from Diedrichshagen to Graal-Müritz
  • The spa concerts
  • The reading hall (spa library)
  • The spa park
  • The public tour through Warnemünde and Rostock
  • The events of the tourist board for Rostock & Warnemünde
  • The events at “Haus des Gastes” in Graal-Müritz
