Berlin - Europe's most-read newspaper is introducing a paywall for part of its online offerings next month.

Bild - Germany's top-selling newspaper and Europe's biggest by circulation - says main news stories will remain free of charge online but a subscription will be required to view features, interviews and other exclusive content.

The basic digital subscription will cost €4.99 per month starting 11 June and twice that for a premium version that includes the tabloid as an e-paper.

The Axel Springer owned newspaper will also offer readers buying a print copy, at 70 euro cents a day, a pass to its online content. The pass is unique to each reader, thanks to a new printing technique.

Bild's daily print circulation is about 2.5 million, 200 000 more than Britain's The Sun.
