URLAUBSARCHITEKTUR presents architecturally outstanding holiday homes and guest houses.
URLAUBSARCHITEKTUR is not just a website, but a network for discerning guests and hosts alike.
The accommodation we feature must fulfil a range of criteria – whether it’s a holiday home, an apartment or a hotel, the architecture has to be something special. We include both historic and modern buildings, though they need not offer the ultimate in luxury – what counts is their individual appeal, the perfect realisation of a concept, authenticity, and the care the owners have for their buildings. The URLAUBSARCHITEKTUR properties are run by hosts who want to share their distinctive houses with others and who offer holiday experiences that stand out in their region.
It is our policy not to handle bookings, but to put guests in touch with hosts so that they may book directly with them.
The properties we currently feature are mainly located within Europe.
As well as our website we have a range of books published by URLAUBSARCHITEKTUR. Most popular are our “Selection” books, praised in the press as “holiday bibles”. These are widely available in bookshops or can be ordered directly from us at our shop.
In general we feature a new property every week. Background reports on the properties and essays on architectural subjects appear regularly on our Blog. And if you would like to keep up to date with the latest properties and articles, you can subscribe to our newsletter.
