3 Stars Retained

Waldhotel Sonnora

“All 11 restaurants that currently have three Michelin stars have been able to confirm their three stars. After France, that’s the most three-star restaurants in Europe.” – Ralf Flinkenflügel, Michelin Germany

New 2 stars

Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa | Baden Baden

“We have three new two-star restaurants. The first is Brenners Park Hotel in Baden Baden under head chef Paul Stradner.”– Ralf Flinkenflügel, Michelin Germany

Ammolite – The Lighthouse Restaurant | Rust

“Then there’s a restaurant called Ammolite – The Lighthouse Restaurant in Rust in Hotel Bell Rock. Head chef Peter Hagen only got his first star last year, but we noticed that he is someone with an incredible amount of talent who has raised the bar even higher. So it didn’t make any sense to wait any longer – if someone is on that level, then we just have to convey this.”– Ralf Flinkenflügel, Michelin Germany

EssZimmer by Käfer | Munich

“It’s a similar story with in Munich, who is certainly not an unknown chef. He has previously worked in many famous places, but has joined restaurant Esszimmer in the BMW World last year. It’s a rather impressive building where the cars are delivered. He’s got his restaurant on the third floor with a great view. When he started there last year we gave him the first star and it was similar to Peter Hagen in Rust: it was just not possible to ignore that he’s someone with an enormous amount of potential.”– Ralf Flinkenflügel, Michelin Germany

New 1 star

Frühsammers Restaurant | Berlin

“Regarding the one-star restaurants, we have a female chef in Berlin called Sonja Frühsammer who is awarded her first star.”– Ralf Flinkenflügel, Michelin Germany

Restaurant handicap. | Künzelsau

“And what I also found rather interesting is a restaurant called Handicap in Kürzelsau, where handicapped people are part of the team, both in the kitchen and in service. They are being deployed according to their abilities. And I just think it’s a great concept and they take great care and consideration of people who are disadvantaged. And their cuisine is exceptionally good.”– Ralf Flinkenflügel, Michelin Germany
