Michelin has unveiled the new selection of the 2018 MICHELIN Guide; this year’s guide includes 300 restaurants with one or more stars, the most the country has ever seen before.

“Alongside the established chefs, a highly motivated generation of young chefs has made German gastronomy among the best in the world,” says Michael Ellis, International Director in charge of the MICHELIN Guides. “The country now offers a wide choice of styles of cuisine and gastronomic concepts—a real advantage for gourmets!”

In the latest edition, Atelier in Munich’s Bayerischer Hotel has been awarded the coveted three stars. “In just three years, chef Jan Hartwig has given his cuisine a very personal signature,” continues Ellis. “The dishes he offers stand out with their deep and complex flavors, their intelligent compositions combined with remarkable technical skills.”

The 2018 guide features 11 three-star restaurants in total.

In addition, four new restaurants obtained two stars this year: Keilings Restaurant in Bad Bentheim in Lower Saxony, Schwarzenstein - Nils Henkel in Geisenheim in the Rheingau region, the restaurant Le Cerf hosted by the "Wald & Schlosshotel Friedrichsruhe" in Öhringen-Friedrichsruhe in Baden-Württemberg, and Courtier in Wangels, a small town in the northern German state of Schleswig-Holstein.

The 2018 MICHELIN Guide Germany now features 250 one-star restaurants, 29 of which are new. Of these, two offer exclusively vegetarian cuisine: Seven Swans in Frankfurt, an establishment that had already been awarded one star in the previous edition and then changed the concept to focus on vegetarian food, and Cookies Cream restaurant in Berlin. The capital has two other newly-starred restaurants: tulus lotrek and Golvet. In Düsseldorf, Fritz's Frau Franzi and Yoshi by Nagaya also received one star, as does Emma Wolf Since 1920, Le Corange in Mannheim, Schuhbecks Fine Dining, and Schwarzreiter located in the hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski in Munich. Finally, the city of Andernach in the Middle Rhine Valley sees two of its restaurants, Ai Pero and Yoso, starred for the first time.

Finally, 460 restaurants—33 of which are new—have been awarded a Bib Gourmand in the MICHELIN guide Germany 2018, an award given to restaurants serving good quality food that is also good value for money. In Germany, a Bib Gourmand restaurant will offer a three-course menu (starter, main course, and dessert) for a maximum of €37.
