DTV classification for holiday homes/apartments and private rooms

The German Tourism Association (DTV) classifies holiday homes/apartments and private rooms with up to nine beds across Germany. This classification was introduced in 1994 and has been implemented with the help of a licensing system since 2004.

There are currently around » 40.000 lodgings with DTV classification and awarded with eight-pointed stars. Similar to the hotel classification method used by the German Hotel and Restaurant Association (DEHOGA), lodgings are awarded with up to five stars.

This classification gives providers the opportunity to have the quality of their accommodation objectively reviewed using a set of criteria used uniformly across the country. Separate from the star rating, inspectors also advise providers on useful ways to improve their accommodation. The stars represent a competitive edge over other providers and provide an effective advertising tool.

The following can apply for the DTV classification:
• Providers of holiday apartments and houses
• Providers of private rooms (with up to nine beds)
