Rundfunkgebühr - Titelbild.jpg


In Germany, you will need to pay a statutory broadcasting fee for public broadcasting since this is the primary source of funding for public radio and television. The broadcasting fee for public broadcasting institutions is collected by the "ARD ZDF Deutschlandradio Beitragsservice". The broadcasting fee is the same flat rate per household, regardless of the devices used. The monthly rate per apartment is currently 17,50 € (as of April 2019).

Registration and change of personal data can simply be made online. If you don't register online, you will automatically receive a letter by "ARD ZDF Deutschlandradio Beitragsservice".

Please note: If you are residing in the International Guesthouse of the University of Bonn, you do not need to pay the broadcasting fee!
