Michelin cancels star revelation event in Hamburg

Michelin has decided to cancel the presentation and awarding of the MICHELIN 2020 Germany Guide, which was planned for March 3rd in Hamburg. The reason for this is the increasing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the associated health risks for participants.

After careful consideration of all current boundary conditions, the management of Michelin Europe North decided on Saturday to cancel the event. We take our responsibility for the health and safety of our award winners, business partners and employees very seriously. The decision to cancel was not an easy one, but we have now made it consistently. We would like to thank all those involved who helped us to prepare the event months in advance for their support and ask for their understanding for this decision.

Will restaurant then not get Michelin stars this year?
The awarding of Michelin stars to restaurants will take place independently of the event digitally and will be issued via press release on Tuesday morning, March 3rd.
