As far as I know you only have to pay taxes for tobacco, so not for the hookah itself.
If you buy tobacco, and it gets caught at the customs, you have to pay €59 + 19% per kg to get your tobacco, or it just gets destroyed.
But.. this is only for countries from outside the European Union. So if you order from Dubai or the USA, there is a chance it gets caught at customs.
If you order from France, or UK, you can order as many tobacco as you want with no risk, because those countries are in the European Union.

The max. amount of shisha that you can import without risk is 250 gram as far as I know.

SO to make it clear

INSIDE Europe. I can order like "2" KG of shisha and wont pay Extra costs ?
I just pay for the shipping and the price for the shisha that stands on the website

OUTSIDE Europe i Can order 250 g without risk if its more then 250G there is a risk that customs confiscate it and aks me to pay 59 + 19 % per kilo ?

As far as I know, yes ttdr. I heard from Sweetlake that when customs catch your tobacco package, they just destroy it, no chance to pay taxes.

And with inside and outside europe, I mean the European Union (Europese Unie landen)

You can't have any tobacco received via post (check the TNT site, tobacco is one of the illegal things). But with EU packages they don't check on those things at customs (at least I don't think so. You can only have tobacco with you when you fly into the country and then the maximum is 250 gr.
If customs find any tobacco via post they will destroy it, you can only pay taxes for tobacco if you are a registered company who is allowed to import tobacco and then the prices mentioned by Blaat are correct.
