The official identifier of a classified property.

The promise of quality for the guest!


The official DTV stars indicate to the guest: This accommodation has been checked and rated according to the star criteria of the German Tourism Association.


Depending on the facilities and service, the accommodation is awarded one to five stars - from simple to first-class.


The DTV stars are a voluntary quality control for holiday apartments and houses as well as holiday rooms with up to nine beds.

Your contact person for the classification is the tourism organization or tourist information office at the location of the holiday accommodation. All information on prices and the classification process can be obtained directly from our license partner.


You can find your local contact person directly using the license holder search.

Each holiday accommodation is checked using the nationally standardized catalog of criteria.

»Criteria for vacation rooms (PDF)

Your local tourism organization or tourist information office will be happy to explain the requirements and arrange an inspector for you to inspect your accommodation. After a successful examination you will receive a certificate with the classification result. Now you can advertise with the stars.

Hosts can advertise with the DTV stars for three years. A new classification is then required.
Arrange a new appointment to appraise your holiday accommodation in good time before your star rating expires. So you can advertise with your stars without interruption.
