In our host online search, you will find the following information in the column, among others:
n.t. = The stars listed are the result of the corresponding classification of the German Hotel and Restaurant Association (DEHOGA) or the German Tourism Association (DTV). Providers without a star designation, which are marked with n. t. have not participated in this voluntary classification. This does not indicate their standard of facilities.
z.T. = Providers whose accommodation has only been partially classified.
