Average price of cigarettes including tobacco tax in Germany 1991-2019

On average, a cigarette in Germany cost 30 cents. Of these, more than half was the tobacco tax, which increased significantly after 2000 and has continue to rise ever since. The raising of taxes may occur for various reasons, for example when the national government needs more funds to finance particular measures.

Expensive hobby

The German tobacco tax most recently brought in 14.3 billion euros worth of revenue. The list of tobacco products imported to Germany is a long one. The most represented products are cigarettes, though daily consumption levels among the German population have been dropping since the 1990s. If in 1991 the average total consumption per day equalled 401 cigarettes, in 2019 it had almost halved. Other tobacco products in demand included stripped and otherwise not manufactured tobacco, as well as smoking tobacco and substitutes.

Smoke and Bremen

Bremen in the north of Germany was the federal state with the highest smoking rates in the country both for men and women. Regulations about smoking both in public and private locations vary by state, though most restaurants and venues across Germany do not allow it.
