The best Viennese vacation rentals and apartments ...

The history of Apartment.at

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, increased. Activities organised include:

  • newspaper articles
  • participation in tourism events
  • joint activities with the Austrian National Tourist Office
  • cooperation with the Vienna Tourist Board
  • participation in holiday fairs
  • visit of the ITB
  • lectures on special topics
  • workshops
  • and much, much more

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.

 

Apartment Pillergasse

 

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 stay in Vienna for you.

But you can also give your host direct feedback about your stay in the apartment and also can read what other travelers say about this place.

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 vacation rentals in Vienna.

Some of the 2016 higlights:

  • complete redesign of the website
  • new backend for hosts
  • instant booking of apartments
  • XML connections and iCal
  • and many more plans to be realized in the future

News around Apartment.at wait for you on our Facebook page and also on our blog.



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.
