In the 2016 Michelin guide it is good news all round for Germany’s top restaurants. 2016 also marks the 51st anniversary of the first Michelin guide coverage of Germany.
First things first, Germany maintained its position as the top country, France aside, for three Michelin star restaurants in Europe. So then, that’s a total of ten Michelin 3 star restaurants, not too shabby when you compare it to the United Kingdom which has a more modest four.
