The German Hotel industry has just launched an interactive online booking site, based on the vast Hotelres database that covers accommodations of all kinds countrywide. The bilingual English /German Web site is easy to navigate, letting surfers search by city or town, hotel name, price category and/or travel date. Reservations can be made instantly, guaranteed by credit

Whether travelling on business, for pleasure, or in a combination of both,
Canadians visiting Germany can choose from a range of accommodation
categories. Pensions and even some hostels are represented on the site as
well as five-star luxury hotels. Individual hotel listings indicate the
hotels’ amenities and explain each property’s price structure. In most
cases, the rates listed cover the room at double occupancy, often including
service charges and taxes, and sometimes breakfast. Children in the same
room as their parents frequently stay free, although the maximum age varies
between 12 and 16 years.

Recent sample rates include:
In Trier, Germany’s oldest city located on the Moselle river, close to the
border with Luxemburg, rates start at 56 euros for one night in a 3-star
hotel, including taxes and service, or approx. $45 per person, double
occupancy. In Meissen, the renowned fine china town in eastern Germany, on
the Elbe river, $47.50 per person and night, double occupancy buys a similar
arrangement, but includes two children 16 years or under at no extra cost.
In the Grimms’ fairytale town of Bremen, on the North Sea, per person rates
start at approx. $36 per night, double occupancy, a child under twelve
staying free. On scenic Lake Constance in Germany’s south, in the resort
city of Constance, seasonal summer guests would pay $64.50 per person,
double occupancy, for a night.
