Destination Germany is renowned for its many different styles of cooking and its wide choice of places to eat – from simple inns to gourmet restaurants. Regional specialties embrace centuries-old traditions that are reflected in the fields, farms, vineyards and orchards of the local landscapes. What’s more, the global shift towards sustainability means that regional identity and a focus on seasonal produce have never been so important. In this regard, Germany sets a high standard. Michelin stars currently adorn more than 290 restaurants in Germany and eleven of these culinary temples carry the guide’s highest accolade of three stars.
