Michelin guide Germany 2013 - third star for La Belle Epoque in Lubeck

At noon today Michelin announced the Michelin stars and Bib Gourmands 2013 for Germany. The Michelin guide for Germany will be available from 9 November 2012.


In the 2013 guide Michelin awards La Belle Epoque in Lübeck a third star. Thirty-five year old chef Kevin Fehling's restaurant, which is housed in the Colombia Travemünde Hotel, a seaside hotel on the Baltic coast, got its second star just two years ago in the 2011 guide. Fehling received his training mainly in German restaurants, among which the famous three-star Schwarzwaldstube in the Black Forest.
Germany now has no fewer than 10 three-star restaurants. Germany's other 9 three-star retaurants have all retained their 3 stars. They are La Vie in Osnabruck, Bareiss in Baiersbronn, Schwarzwaldstube in Baiersbronn, Amador in Mannheim, Aqua in Wolfsburg, Vendôme in Bergisch-Gladbach, Waldhotel Sonnora in Wittlich, Schloss Berg in Perl and Gästehaus Erfort in Saarbrücken.

In the 2013 edition 7 restaurants have been promoted to two stars; they include Seven Seas at the Süllberg Hotel in Hamburg and Tim Raue in Berlin.
Avant-garde chef Tim Raue's eponymous restaurant debuted in the 2009 Michelin guide and has quickly become renowned for its Asian influenced cuisine. Hirschen restaurant in Sulzburg (Black Forest) has also been promoted to two stars. This makes Douce Steiner the first female chef in Germany to be awarded two Michelin stars. Two restaurants lost their second star; Brenners Park Restaurant in Baden-Baden and Schwingshackl Esskultur in Tegernsee (Bavaria). With the latest mutations the number of two-star restaurants in Germany now stands at 36.

29 restaurants have been awarded their first star and the 2013 guide will feature a total of 209 one-star restaurants (208 in the 2012 guide).

The 2013 guide also sees a small rise of the number of restaurants in the Bib Gourmand category (3 courses for €35). Michelin awarded 70 restaurants this accolade bringing the total number of Bib Gourmand restaurants in Germany up to 452 (431 in the 2012 guide).
