Special Baden-Wurttemberg Travel Tips by Bettina Kraft

Why I like Baden-Wurttemberg: Baden-Württemberg occupies the southwestern corner of Germany, bordering France in the west and Switzerland in the south. While the cities of Stuttgart, Mannheim, and Karlsruhe offer a wide variety of cultural attractions, Baden-Württemberg is especially famous for its beautiful and varied scenic landscapes. Whatever strikes your fancy—whether it’s boating on Lake Constance (the Bodensee), hiking or cross-country skiing in the romantic Black Forest (Schwarzwald), or touring the famous vineyards of the Upper Rhine valley, Baden-Württemberg has something for every nature-lover. We feature a wide—and constantly growing—selection of picturesque vacation apartments in towns like Heidelberg, Friedrichshafen, Baden Baden, Tübingen, and Oberharmersbach.
These Baden-Wurttemberg travel tips are compiled by Bettina Kraft. Bettina likes to help visitors from all over the world to experience Germany in a different, more personal way, and make it easy for them to do so by providing detailed travel tips and advise.
Verified & Approved - Quality Baden-Wurttemberg Vacation Rentals you can Trust!
There is unfortunately a lot of scam and fraud on the Internet today and we read sad stories about families who booked a cheap apartment on a rental site only to find out later when they arrived that this apartment did not even exist! Therefore when you see our LLAG quality seal next to an apartment listing that means that we have verified and approved this particular apartment and you can be assured that this is a good choice when booking this one.
Of course, given our large selection of vacation rentals in Germany, Austria and Switzerland we cannot personally inspect every one of them. However, here is what we do to to ensure overall high quality and minimze the risk of fraud:
First, we are very selective and don't accept apartments of poor quality based on submitted description and photos.
We verify the owner's address, require a web site, and a valid phone number. With many of our property owners we talk with them over the phone on a daily basis and we have built up with them a strong business relationship over the years.
If we experience communication issues with a property owner, e.g. they respond too slowly to inquiries or customer requests, we investigate and possibly cancel our business relationship with that owner. Reason is if we are not able to successfully communicate with an owner, how can we expect that it should work out with a potential tenant?
We have a very high customer satisfaction rate (please read our customer testimonials.) However, if a customer reports issues we also immediately investigate. In case of incidents where we believe the quality and overall service of an apartment is no longer up to our standards we also remove that one from our site quickly.
Those quality measures helped us in the past to successfully protect our customers when booking a rental through us. Look for the LLAG quality seal that indicates that we have approved and verified that apartment.
