In her welcoming address, Inselkammer emphasized: "The qualified companies make a significant contribution to the preservation of what is probably the most beautiful industry in the world and, in addition to the high legal requirements, they also take on additional qualification. For me, this is a wonderful signal that there doesn't always have to be more laws and regulations, but that entrepreneurs act on their own responsibility.I am proud of the companies honored today and their above-average commitment to our industry - that is anything but a matter of course."

Bavarian Minister of Economic Affairs Hubert Aiwanger: "The stars prove how high the quality of accommodation in Bavaria is. Many owners have taken advantage of the difficult Corona period to invest in their properties.  The successful classification is the well-deserved reward for their commitment, which is why I am pleased that we can award 85 hotels, inns and guesthouses this year.

As part of the German Hotel Classification, 76 establishments received classification certificates.    Demand was highest in the three-star segment, with 35 hotels receiving awards, followed by the four-star segment with 35 certified hotels.  In addition, two hotels were awarded two stars and four other hotels were awarded five stars.  In the area of classification for inns, guesthouses and guesthouses, a total of nine establishments were classified, including six three-star establishments and three four-star establishments.

The German hotel classification system with its five different categories - one to five stars - was developed and introduced in 1996 by the industry association DEHOGA, with Bavaria playing a key role.  In 2005, the quality system was expanded to include the G classification for inns, guesthouses and guesthouses.  The stars awarded are valid for a period of three years in both classification systems. The assessments in Bavaria are carried out by BTG Bayern Tourist GmbH, a subsidiary of the Bavarian Hotel and Restaurant Association DEHOGA Bayern. For this purpose, it carries out an on-site inspection of all establishments to be classified.
