Secret Resorts in Germany –- A Checklist to Find Them –- Part 4 of 4
by: Marcus Hochstadt

Final Issue with the German Hotel Classification and the overall checklist

To cut a long story short, here we go :)

German Hotel Classification

A quite good indicator to select and find Secret Resorts in Germany is our German Hotel Classification. It's masterminded by the German Hotel and Restaurant Association (DEHOGA).

1996 they established their classification "code". Their assessment is based exclusively on objective criteria. Individual evaluations are emotional and subjective. This is why the hotel rating does not mirror subjective aspects.

And you specifically can use this system as one more criteria on selecting and finding the Secret Resorts of your dreams.

They categorize hotels in a 5-Star segment. Each hotel classified by the DEHOGA has a signal outside their hotel, mostly close to their entrance. On that plate you see immediately how many Stars this hotel has, given by the DEHOGA.

See it however as a short message about quality standards of that hotel.

The range goes from 1 to 5 Stars, whereby a Wellness Hotel with 5 Stars might be a Secret Resort. You will however also find Secret Resorts with a 3-Star plate outside. But they should not have a plate less than 3-Stars, okay?

Good. In Germany however are some TOP-hotels without this plate, because they assign to have "their own" classification code.

Anyway, as I already told you this is only "one more" indicator for your selection.

For more details about our German Hotel Classification go to their official website at and browse through their descriptions.

So, finally we can go now to the overall checklist of how to find Secrets Resorts in Germany. With that checklist handy you surely will find the Wellness Hotel of your dreams. Simply print this page out and check each point.

Enough the fluff, here we go... :wink:


Step 1 - Environment

Location, Location, Location! The Secret Resort should not be on or near a high traffic street
Layout Plan; to see where the Secret Resort is located
With their addresses handy go online and do a research on a route planner by yourself (I have recently produced a video on how to use our German route planners. You can watch it for free by simply signing up for my free monthly Special Report at
make sure the wellness hotel is located near a forest or at least far away of 'daily traffic'
Step 2 - Age and Condition

when were the Secret Resorts built?
when were they reconditioned the last time?
last recondition should have been within the last, better six years
do you find the beauty of the hotel outside or inside? (should be inside; you don't sleep and get treatened outside, do you?!)
Step 3 - Wellness Sector

Sauna; at least two, better four AND INSIDE the house (not a few miles to drive)
Solarium; if desirable
Massage; this is absolutely a MUST have! Here also: IN-house
Pools; also, should have been reconditioned recently
That’s it! Slap your back, we have covered a lot!

Now that you know how you find real Secret Resorts in Germany, I wish you a great trip and a pleasant stay!

Send me your experiences! I'm hot to get to know them! Go to the contact page on my website and submit your travel reports. Tell me what you have seen and experienced so far.

Enjoy your trip(s)!
