Apartment.at is the platform for all Viennese vacation rental owners who have really been living up to the idea of hospitality – for more than 20 years. You as a guest really profit from all the our hosts’ knowledge about Vienna, many insiders' tips included.
Because who knows their city better than a local? So if you choose to rent an apartment from one of our hosts, you not only get an accommodation but real Viennese hospitality.
Just one more thing, we, Stephanie & Christian Rank run this platform and take care of all the stuff bothering our hosts. The apartments itself are run by each host themselves. So if you are interested in renting one of the properties, please contact the owner directly
It all began in 1996. In this year some Viennese apartment owners came up with the idea to improve networking, enhancing their marketing chances. This was organised by Erwin Kaminek, the later operator of the platform apartment.at. As they shared similar ideas and topics they established themselves as "Interest Group Apartment Service Vienna".
Right from the beginning they also focused on a good cooperation with the Vienna Tourist Board.
In the following years the group grew steadily, new topics arose and the network enlarged.
One major focus from the start on was the own website to better market the apartments and vacation rentals: www.apartment.at
Over the years the group became more and more professional. Also the marketing activities for the website, and in consequence for all the listed apartments and short-term rentals, increased. Activities organised include:
You can imagine that in more than 20 years many activities where organised. All the hosts can now participate in the Vienna Experts Club of the Vienna Tourist Board.
To emphasize the quality of the apartments and the hosts, minimum criteria for getting listed on the website were developed with the goal to achieve the best possible holiday in Vienna for you.
But you can also give your host directly feedback about your stay in the apartment and can also read what other travellers say about this accomodation.
After 18 years operating the website apartment.at family Kaminek retired and handed the platform over to Stephanie & Christian Rank in May 2014.
Christian Rank and his parents are apartment hosts from the very first minute and were among the first members of the network.
We, Stephanie & Christian, now work continuously on apartment.at in order to keep our promise to be your specialist for apartments and short-term rentals in Vienna.
Some of the 2016 highlights:
To keep and further develop the idea of a lobby group the Wiener Apartmentvermieter Vereinigung (WAVV) (Viennese Apartmentmanager Association) was founded in 2015.
This enables us, together with the whole team of the WAVV, to professionalize the service for the hosts even more and at the same time be their official representative on the Viennese market.
The association is open for all Viennese apartment hosts, regardless of a listing on apartment.at.
The goal is to establish a strong lobby for you as a host in Vienna and to foster the regular networking of our members.
This is why the WAVV offers their members many advantages like comprehensive information about renting a holiday apartment, regular networking events, seminars and much more.
