Beatrix Walkner - a host more personal

Today I introduce you to our long-time host Beatrix Walkner of the Appartements Augarten. Her apartments are right in the heart of the second district, just around the corner of the beautiful Augarten.

Very comfortable for you is, that in the basement of the building you have a restaurant, also run by family Walkner, wher you can have breakfast or try all those mouthwatering Viennese specialities.

Your name

Beatrix Walkner

Your work and offer

Renting flats long-term and also short-term to Vienna visitors

Where were you born?

I am a real Viennese girl.

What is so special about your work? What do you like about it? How did you got the idea doing this?

What I like so much about being a host is, that I get to know so many interesting, amazing people.

I already rent flats for many years. In the late 90ies I started renting our falts also to Vienna visitors, and since then I am a host of passion. I never regret that decision.

Do you have a typical day?

The special thing about being a host is that no day is the same as the other. There are Check-Ins, Check-Outs, many administrative stuff, things to repair or buy. 

And last but not least, it is all about the guests for whom we do our best that they feel comfortable and have everything they need.

Why I like living in Vienna ...

Vienna has everything you could wish. An extensive offer of art, culture, culinary and entertainment, an excellent network of public transport, urban flair and so many green areas. And not without reason Vienna is voted as one of the liveablest cities in the world. Personally I really love travelling, but I never would like to live somewhere else except Vienna.

What do you like abou the city?

The imperial heritage that you find all over the city. But there is alss the modern side of Vienna, as the mix of past, present and future is so amazing in this city. Something that is also reflected in public space.

Not to be forgotten: the Viennese, they are so much better as some might say. My guests so often emphasize that all over the city they were welcomed openhearted and friendly, all questions were answered with lots of patience and whatever the asked for, everyone tried their best to help.
