Quality is important to us!

We strive to offer you the very best quality. To do so, we remain in close contact with our accommodation providers in order to offer comprehensive advice and convince them of the advantages of joining the classification system. You can be sure to receive certified quality, features, facilities and the promised service in your accommodation establishment.

Our holiday apartments, homes and private rooms have been classified voluntarily according to the criteria of the German Tourism Federation (Deutscher Tourismusverband, DTV) and the hotels according to the criteria of the German Hotel and Restaurant Association (Deutscher Hotel- und Gaststättenverband, DeHoGa). Accommodation establishments without a star rating have not or not yet participated in the rating system. A conclusion about the standard of their features and facilities cannot be drawn from this. The classifications are valid for a period of three years.

An overview of all German classifications can also be found at www.klassifizierung.de
