Despite careful control of the contents, we do not assume any liability for the contents of external links. The operators of the linked pages are solely responsible for the content of their pages.

With its judgement of 12 May 1998, the Regional Court of Hamburg decided that the inclusion of a link may entail joint responsibility for the content of the linked pages. According to the Regional Court of Hamburg, this can only be prevented by expressly distancing oneself from the contents of the linked pages. We have created links to other sites on the Internet on our homepage. The following applies to all of these links: We expressly emphasize that we have no influence whatsoever on the design and content of the linked pages. Therefore we dissociate ourselves expressly from all contents of all linked pages on our homepage. This declaration applies to all links created on our homepage and to all contents of the pages to which the banners and links lead.

For the content of possibly linked pages, the operators of these pages are exclusively responsible.

In case of justified interest in lodge pages, you will find the addresses on the respective homepage – if not, we will be glad to inform you.
