Welcome to the Selection of German Luxury Hotels!

Our association of six German and one Austrian luxury hotels is a network of passionate hosts with a central mission: to offer first-class service that’s discreet, heartfelt, and imbued with a spirit of personalised luxury. That’s our philosophy. That’s who we are.

Working together and exchanging ideas continually inspires us to offer our guests the very best. For us, the “luxury hotel” concept is an unbeatable combination of precious tradition and innovation. With a focus on values such as family, health, quality of life, and the sustainability of highly individual moments of indulgence.

So I’d like to invite you to experience the Selection of German Luxury Hotels – both digitally and in person. Come and enjoy first-class hospitality in our distinctive collection of eight member hotels.

We look forward to welcoming you!
