1. These terms and conditions apply to contracts of Hofgut Georgenthal GmbH & Co. KG (hereinafter referred to as “HG”) for the rental of hotel rooms for accommodation, conference and other functional rooms for the holding of events, seminars, conferences, exhibitions, etc. and for all related services and deliveries by HG (hereinafter comprehensively: “Service Provision”).

3. Customers within the meaning of these General terms and conditions are both consumers and entrepreneurs within the meaning of §§ 13, 14 of the German Civil Code (hereinafter referred to as “BGB”).
II. Conclusion of contract/contract amendments
1. The contract is concluded by HG’s acceptance of the customer’s application in text form. If HG makes the customer a binding offer, the contract shall be concluded by the customer’s acceptance of this offer. In such cases, a binding offer is indicated accordingly.
2. The contracting parties are HG and the customer. If a third party has ordered on behalf of the customer, the customer and the third party shall be liable to HG as joint and several debtors.
3. No claim to the subsequent conclusion of a contract can be derived from a written or verbal appointment request, reservation or booking of premises for specific dates or the sending of an offer or contract that has not yet been signed. Verbal agreements are invalid.
4. The customer is obliged to notify HG in writing without delay of any changes, additions, special requests or new and further event specifics, in particular the use of technical equipment or other event technology in good time, at the latest four weeks before the start of the event, and to coordinate these with HG. The customer must take into account that deviations or additional services which have not already been stipulated in the contract may be subject to additional payment.
III. Legal relationships
The customer designated in the contract is the sole organiser of the event to be held in the rented premises. The contract does not establish a corporate relationship between the customer and HG.
IV. Rental period/duration of event/transfer of use
1. For the duration of use and thus for the calculation of the rent and time surcharges, the time at which the rental object is handed over to the customer and returned to HG shall be decisive.
2. There are very short conversion times between events taking place at HG, so that the customer must ensure that the rental period agreed with HG is adhered to exactly. However, if the rental period is exceeded, HG must be notified immediately. HG reserves the right to claim compensation for use and damages.
3. The customer is not allowed to transfer the use of the rental object to a third party.
4. Invitations to job interviews, sales or similar events as well as subletting or reletting require the prior consent of HG in text form, whereby the right to termination
pursuant to section 540 (1) sentence 2 of the German Civil Code (BGB) is waived.
V. Services; prices; terms of payment; advance payments and securities; set-off/assignment
1. HG is obliged to provide the services ordered by the customer and promised by HG. The customer is obliged to pay the prices agreed to for these and other services used or to pay the (usual) prices agreed to by HG applicable at the time of the service provision. This also applies to services and expenses of HG to third parties arranged by the customer or by HG.
2. Services exceeding the agreed services as well as necessary special cleaning in case of heavy soiling are to be paid for separately. If the presence of security personnel, medical personnel, fire safety guards or persons responsible for event technology is ordered by the authorities or determined to be necessary by HG on the basis of a risk assessment, the costs shall also be borne by the customer.
3. The agreed prices include the respective statutory value added tax, unless otherwise stated.
4. Invoices from HG are payable within 10 days of the invoice date without deduction. HG is entitled to call in accrued claims at any time and to demand an immediate payment. In the event of default in payment HG is entitled to charge a reasonable reminder fee and the statutory interest on arrears applicable at the time. HG reserves the right to prove higher damages.
5. HG is entitled to demand a reasonable advance payment at any time. The amount of the advance payment and the payment dates may be agreed to in writing in the contract.
6. HG is furthermore entitled to demand a reasonable security deposit at the conclusion of the contract which has to be provided in the form of a cash deposit. HG may also demand a security deposit or its increase after conclusion of the contract if increased risks of damage only become apparent after conclusion of the contract.
7. The customer may only offset an undisputed or legally established claim set-off against a claim of HG.
8. The customer is also not entitled to assign claims arising from the contractual relationship to third parties without the consent of HG. An appropriate consent by HG has to be given in writing.
VI. Withdrawal of the customer / cancellation, change in the number of participants
1. The customer may withdraw from the contract at any time before the start of the journey. If the customer withdraws from the contract, the hotel loses the claim to the agreed travel price. However, the hotel may demand a reasonable compensation in the amount of the following flat rates:

|From 2 days before the beginning of the event||90 %|
b) Individual tours
aa.) Tours with one overnight stay/breakfast without further services can be cancelled free of charge until 6 p.m. on the same day.

2. The flat rates of compensation were graded according to the period between the declaration of cancellation and the start of the trip as well as the expected saved expenses of HG and other use of the travel service.
3. In this respect, the customer is expressly entitled to prove that a claim has not arisen or has arisen at a significantly lower rate than the lump sum estimated here.
4. The date of receipt of the customer’s declaration of withdrawal by HG shall be decisive for the assertion of the date of receipt by HG of the customer’s declaration of withdrawal.
5. The HG is entitled to invoice the customer for the lump sum compensation incurred and to
withhold it from any down payment, if applicable.
VII. Withdrawal or termination by HG, cancellation of events
1. HG is entitled to withdraw from or terminate the contract if
a.) an advance payment or security is not made even after expiry of a reasonable period set by HG;
b.) circumstances for which HG is not responsible, in particular force majeure, make it impossible to fulfil the contract;
c.) if in the order false information is given about essential facts and circumstances, e.g. in the person of the customer or the purpose of the event, or if HG has reasonable grounds to assume that the customer’s use of the service may jeopardise the smooth running of the business or the public reputation of HG;
d.) the official approvals, registrations or permits required for the event are not available or the customer has not fulfilled his legal, official or contractually assumed obligations to notify, inform, report and pay HG or the authorities;
e.) the customer does not provide proof of event liability insurance or does not provide proof of sufficient event liability insurance despite a corresponding request by HG;
f.) the customer violates legal regulations, official requirements, orders and GTC’s;
g.) the purpose of use specified in the rental agreement is substantially changed.
h.) the right of the customer to withdraw from the contract within a certain period has been agreed in writing. In this case HG is entitled to withdraw from the contract for its part during this period if enquiries from other customers for the services for the contractually booked services are made in text form and the customer does not waive his right to withdraw from the contract upon enquiry.
2. The right to terminate for good cause remains unaffected. HG is furthermore entitled to demand the immediate dissolution of the event as well as immediate evacuation and return of the rental property if material contractual obligations of the contract or these provisions or safety-related regulations have been violated or if a specially risky situation exists. In the event of the aforementioned reasons, HG is entitled to carry out the evacuation and dissolution at the expense and risk of the customer.
A breach of material contractual obligations shall be deemed to have occurred in particular if the customer breaches his contractual obligations more than just insignificantly or if facts become known which give rise to fears that an event other than the agreed event will be held or that proper and trouble-free use of the rooms cannot be guaranteed.
VIII. Force Majeure/Sovereign Restrictions
If the hotel cannot be fully or partially operated due to sovereign decrees, general orders or force majeure and if the guest is unable to make use of the corresponding services, the hotel shall not be in breach of duty for which the hotel is responsible. Force majeure is an external, unavoidable event for which the hotel is not responsible which has no operational connection with it and which cannot be averted even by the utmost diligence. Unavoidable events are for example the ongoing corona pandemic and other epidemics/pandemics. Any sovereign decrees or general orders applicable to the hotel shall be announced and published by the competent authorities. If the hotel is prevented from fulfilling its contractual obligations because of the aforementioned reasons, the hotel shall be entitled to adjust its hotel services in accordance with the applicable legal decrees which may only be refused for good cause. If this is not possible for the HG or if this is unreasonable for the guest or is refused for good cause, both parties are entitled to cancel the stay free of charge. If the hotel operation is fully prohibited, the hotel shall be entitled to offer the guest an alternative travel date. If the parties are unable to agree on an alternative date, both parties are entitled to cancel the contract in question free of charge by means of a declaration in text form. In the event of a cancellation free of charge, any down payment made by the guest shall be refunded by the hotel without delay or at the latest within 14 working days.
IX. Changes to the rented object; handover, return, handover protocol
1. Alterations to the rental object as well as the attachment of decorations, signs and posters and the like require the prior written consent of HG.
2. All objects, installations and superstructures, modifications, decorations and similar items brought in by the customer must be completely removed by him at the end of the rental period and, if necessary, disposed of in accordance with the applicable waste disposal regulations, and the original condition must be restored. If the customer fails to do so, HG may carry out the removal and storage at the customer’s expense.
X. Accessibility of the rented property, guarding
1. Other events may take place at HG at the same time as the customer’s event. The customer is advised that the areas outside the event rooms are accessible to visitors of other events or third parties. In particular, a public road leads across the property, so that public traffic must be expected. In this respect, the customer shall not be entitled to any injunctive relief, reduction or claims for damages.
2. The customer shall be responsible for ensuring that the rental object is cordoned off or that access is controlled by the customer during the rental period, in particular during assembly and dismantling as well as during breaks. HG shall not be liable for the loss of items or other valuables stolen from the rented premises or otherwise got lost. Valuable or easily movable items must be locked up if necessary.
3. The customer shall grant access to the rented property to HG and its agents commissioned to provide services in connection with the customer’s event at all times during the rental period.
1. HG shall be liable for its obligations under the contract with the due care of a prudent businessman.
2. Claims of the customer for damages are excluded. Excluded from this is the liability for damages to injury to life, body, health and essential contractual obligations that are based on an intentional or negligent breach of duty by HG or its legal representatives or vicarious agents. An essential contractual obligation in the aforementioned sense is an obligation the fulfilment of which guarantees the proper performance of the contract in the first place and on the observance of which the contractual partner regularly relies on and may rely on. Furthermore excluded is the liability for other damages resulting from an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by HG or its legal representatives or vicarious agents.
3. In the event of disruptions or defects in HG’s services, HG will endeavour to remedy the situation if it becomes aware of the same or if the customer immediately notifies HG of the same. The customer is obliged to contribute what is reasonable to him in order to remedy the disruption and keep any possible damage to a minimum. The customer is obliged to inform HG in good time of the possibility of an exceptionally high level of damage.
4. No custody agreement shall be concluded with regard to exhibition items or other items, including personal items, which are not brought-in items within the meaning of Section 701 (2) of the German Civil Code (BGB). HG accepts no liability for loss, destruction or damage to the above mentioned items, except in the case of intent or gross negligence.
5. Insofar as a parking space is made available to the customer on HG’s property, this does not constitute a safekeeping contract. HG is not liable for loss of or damage to parked motor vehicles and their contents. The customer is expressly informed that the parking spaces are not guarded, are open to the public 24 hours a day and are not locked.
6. HG is not liable for the punctual execution of wake-up orders, the timeliness and correctness of news transmissions and the delivery of mail and goods consignments.
7. The strict liability of HG for material defects existing at the time of conclusion of the contract is excluded; § 536 a para. 1 BGB (German Civil Code) does not apply in this case. HG is liable for items brought into the room in accordance with the statutory provisions, i.e. up to 100 times the room price, up to a maximum of € 3,500, and for money, securities and valuables up to € 800. HG recommends money, securities and valuables to be kept in the room safe. The liability claims expire if the customer does not notify HG immediately after becoming aware of the loss, destruction or damage (§ 703 BGB).
In the event of disruptions to the technical supply, in particular to electricity, water, compressed air, heating, etc., HG must be informed immediately. HG accepts no liability for damage resulting from the fact that disruptions occur in the event of power fluctuations or force majeure or that the power or water supply is interrupted by order of the authorities or energy suppliers.
XIII. Room provision, handover and return
Booked rooms shall be available to the customer departing from 3.00 p.m. on the agreed day of arrival. The customer has no right to earlier provision. The customer does not acquire a claim to the provision of certain rooms. The rooms must be vacated and made available to HG by 11.00 a.m. at the latest on the agreed day of departure. Thereafter, HG may charge 50% of the list price for the late vacating of the room for its use in excess of the contract until 4.00 p.m., and 100% of the list price from 4.00 p.m. onwards.
XIV. Room allocations
Premises named in the offer/contract are non-binding and are subject to change at any time. The customer does not acquire any claim to the provision of specific rooms or premises. A definitive room allocation can be requested 10 days prior to arrival. When allocating rooms, the size of the group and the agreed seating arrangements. If rooms or premises are confirmed in the order confirmation but are not available, HG is obliged to make every effort to find a substitute of equal value in the house.
XV. Security regulations
1. Within four weeks prior to the start of the event, the customer shall be obliged to provide truthful and complete information that is required for an assessment of any hazards arising from the event. This information is to be handed over to the relevant HG employees. If HG decides to draw up a safety concept for the customer’s event, the customer shall be obliged to provide HG with all the information required for this and to cooperate in its preparation. In particular, the customer is obliged to provide HG in good time, at the latest four weeks before the start of the event, with the information relevant to the assessment of increased fire hazards, in particular regarding set-ups, equipment as well as the course of the event and any associated fire hazards and other actions relevant to fire safety.
2. The customer is obliged to comply with HG’s safety regulations and to ensure compliance with them by visitors, employees and agents of the customer by taking appropriate measures. Further requirements resulting from the nature and course of the event or from a safety concept drawn up by HG for the event must be observed. Safety instructions issued by HG and its agents must be followed.
3. In particular, the customer is obliged to ensure the traffic safety of the equipment he has brought in.
4. If a fire safety watch, a medical service or security forces are required for an event, the scope of these services, in particular the number of persons to be provided, depends on the type of event, the number of visitors, the event-specific safety regulations and the official regulations in the individual case. The costs arising from the deployment of these specialists shall be borne by the customer – subject to any provision to the contrary in the rental agreement.
XVI. Liability of the customer, Insurance, Third Party Liability
1. The customer shall be liable to HG in accordance with the statutory provisions, unless otherwise stipulated below. The customer shall be liable for the complete and proper return of the rental object and the equipment, access cards, installations and other facilities provided for use.
2. The customer shall be liable to HG for damages in the event of personal injury, property damage and financial loss culpably caused by himself, his agents, vicarious agents, guests or other third parties in connection with the event, insofar as these are attributable to the customer in accordance with the statutory provisions. This applies in particular to damage caused to the premises, facilities, equipment and access routes provided by HG. The customer’s liability also includes damage caused by riots, fire, panic and similar events caused by the event itself. Within the scope of his liability, the customer shall indemnify HG against all claims for damages asserted against HG by third parties, in particular servants, members or agents of the customer as well as visitors, in connection with the event.
3. HG is entitled to require the customer to take out event liability insurance in accordance with the following requirements of HG: the sum insured must be at least € 1 million for personal injury and property damage and € 2.5 million for financial loss and both rental damage to the rented property and rental damage to movable property must be insured. The corresponding proof of insurance must be submitted to HG no later than two weeks before the start of the event.
Claims by HG due to changes or deterioration of the leased property are subject to a limitation period of six months. The limitation period shall commence at the time when HG receives the rented item back (day of departure). All claims against HG are generally subject to a limitation period of one year from the beginning of the knowledge-dependent regular limitation period of section 199 para (1) of the German Civil Code (BGB). Claims for damages shall become statute-barred after three years irrespective of knowledge. The reductions in the statute of limitations do not apply to claims based on an intentional or grossly negligent breach of duty by HG or on such an injury to life, body or health by HG.
XVIII. Copyrights, notification and approval obligations, responsibility of the customer
The designation and advertising of the event are the sole responsibility of the customer. In the event of infringements of copyrights, image and name rights or trademark rights, the customer shall indemnify HG against all claims of third parties. The customer irrevocably acknowledges being the sole organiser and responsible party within the meaning of the Copyright Act. The customer shall be solely responsible for fulfilling all statutory notification obligations and obtaining any necessary permits at his own expense. In particular, he is obliged to properly register the event with GEMA. HG may demand proof of registration, fulfilment of the aforementioned registration obligations and proof of payment of the GEMA fees in good time before the event. As the organiser, the customer is responsible for the event programme and the safe, smooth running of the event. Within his sphere of influence, he is responsible for compliance with the accident prevention regulations and the statutory provisions, in particular the Youth Protection Act, the Sunday and Public Holiday Act, noise protection and the local curfew regulations.
XIX. Photos, film and sound recordings
Commercial photos, film, video and sound recordings of any kind by the customer or by a third party commissioned by the customer require the prior written consent of HG. The customer shall inform HG in detail about the planned scope and details of the aforementioned recordings in the aforementioned sense. HG must be informed in good time, at least four weeks before the start of the event, about planned recordings and reportings.
XX. Declaration of Conformity
By signing the contract, the customer declares that the event will not have any anti-democratic, racist, extreme right-wing or left-wing, xenophobic or anti-semitic content. In particular, neither freedom nor human dignity – regardless of the form in which this takes place – may be held in contempt. Should participants, visitors to the event violate this, the customer shall immediately put a stop to this by taking appropriate measures, if necessary also by expelling them from his event.
XXI. Technical facilities and connections
Insofar as HG procures technical and other equipment from third parties for the customer at the customer’s instigation in accordance with the contract, HG shall act in the name of, on the authority of and for the account of the customer. The customer shall be liable for the careful handling and proper return of such equipment and shall indemnify HG against all claims of third parties arising from the provision of such equipment. The use of the customer’s own electrical equipment using HG’s power grid requires the customer’s prior written consent. Any malfunctions or damage to HG’s technical equipment resulting from the use of such equipment shall be borne by the customer unless HG is responsible for such malfunctions or damage. HG may record and charge the electricity costs incurred by the use as a lump sum. The customer is only entitled to use his own telephone, fax and data transmission equipment as well as WLAN with the prior consent of HG. HG may charge a connection fee for this. If HG makes technical equipment available to the customer, the customer is obliged to check it for proper condition when it is made available, to confirm this proper condition or to record any defects found in writing in a log and to forward this to HG without delay.
