JOIE DE VIVRE, INDULGENCE & RELAXATION AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL
Founded in 1954, Relais & Châteaux is now an association of over 580 unique and independent hotels and restaurants. Hoteliers and chefs share the passion for their profession and the desire for genuine connections.
Relais & Châteaux members strive to preserve and promote the richness and diversity of the world’s cuisines and the traditions of hospitality. The obligation to protect the local heritage and the environment was recorded and presented in a manifesto by UNESCO in 2014.
In Germany, 22 hotels and restaurants are currently members of the association. From Sylt to Upper Bavaria, some of the most renowned hoteliers and many of our country’s top chefs are represented here; some have been a part of the association for more than 25 years. A number of Routes du Bonheur itineraries combine the most beautiful destinations in Germany with established hotels that offer genuine hospitality and excellent cuisine.
