How do I book an apartment on Wunderflats?
You've found a suitable apartment on our platform? Please make a non-binding booking request via the button “Request to book". So we can check the availability of the apartment for you. To make the process quick and easy, we will ask you for some important information about yourself and your stay. Then we take over for you!
We contact the landlord/-lady and accompany you through the entire booking process. We remain available as your contact person until you move in and beyond.
Can I book a Wunderflat by phone?
All our booking processes are online and ideally harmonised with each other. Unfortunately, we cannot book a flat for you over the phone.
You can request a Wunderflat easily and without obligation online. You can see all apartments’ availabilities in the online listing in the calendar section.
Can I register in the apartment I book on Wunderflats (Anmeldung)?
Yes, as a tenant you can register at the registration office or citizens' office (Anmeldung) in most apartments offered on Wunderflats.
Please look out for the information on the confirmation of residence in the listing when you make your booking. If “landlord's confirmation of residence (Wohnungsgeberbestätigung)” is included under "Services" as a feature of the apartment, then you can register in this apartment with the authorities.
Please find more information here on the registration (Anmeldung) and the confirmation of residence (Wohnungsgeberbestätigung).

Can I view the apartment that I want to rent beforehand?
As soon as a Wunderflat is reserved for you and before signing the rental agreement, we are happy to make a viewing appointment for you.
If the landlord/-lady is not in the city at the time or the current tenant of the apartment does not consent to a viewing, then it is, unfortunately, not possible. However, most of the apartments on our platform are verified by one of our real estate photographers on site. You can recognise this by the watermark on the upper right edge of the picture. So, you save yourself the viewing and apartment selection time.
What happens after I’ve sent a booking request?
We will forward your booking request directly to the landlord/-lady for review. They can either accept or reject it. In the meantime, you can send booking requests for other suitable Wunderflats.
Your booking request was accepted?
Great! Now it’s up to you. If you would like to rent this Wunderflat, please confirm it as soon as possible. Another tenant might be faster than you. Please keep in mind that you can only confirm one booking at a time.
After you confirmed the booking request, we start creating the rental agreement for you and the landlord/-lady.The apartment is then reserved for you.
If you withdraw the accepted booking request, you can confirm another booking.
If someone else was quicker to confirm than you, you will receive a "Reserved for another tenant" message.
Your booking request was rejected?
Unfortunately, your request was not a good fit for the landlord/-lady. This can have different reasons.

Which documents should I have at hand?
After your initial booking request, we will tell you in your account exactly which documents we need from you. The sooner you upload all the documents to your account in "My documents", the sooner we can draw up the rental agreement for you and your landlord/-lady
In any case we need:
Your current address
For the identity verification through the Wunderflats Account: a valid government-issued identity document of every person moving in (find more information about the identity verification here)
And depending on whether you are studying or working, we also need:
From employees: a copy of your employment contract or current payslips
If your company pays the rent for you, we need a confirmation they cover the monthly rent
From self-employed persons or freelancers: financial evidence (e.g. a current bank account statement) to confirm that you have enough financial liquidity to cover the monthly rent
From students: proof of enrolment and financial evidence (e.g. a current bank account statement) or security by a third party including income statement and a copy of the guarantor's ID or passport
With these documents we verify the identity and solvency of all tenants, as is customary on the regular rental market. You do not need to submit any other documents, such as SCHUFA information.
Do I need SCHUFA information to rent an apartment with Wunderflats?
No, you do not need SCHUFA information to conclude a rental agreement through us. We use other documents such as current payslips or bank account statements to check the financial liquidity of all our tenants.
Here you will find a list of the documents we require from you to prepare the rental agreement: Which documents should I have at hand?
What costs are included in the rent?
At Wunderflats we work with all-inclusive rental prices: These include the rental price, the furniture surcharge and monthly utilities such as heating, electricity, water and an internet flat rate.
The fixed rate for utilities depends on the average consumption of the last years and the number of tenants. According to the experience of our Wunderflats landlords/-ladies, the costs of different consumer behavior balance out well over several tenants. Only in case of significantly higher consumption, an additional payment might be due, which can be offset against the security deposit.
What is the Housing support initiative for Ukraine?
Wunderflats started this housing initiative with the aim of activating available housing for displaced Ukrainians and making it available to them - if possible free of charge or at very low rents. The rent is set by the landlords/-ladies. The use of the Wunderflats platform for this initiative is free of charge for all participants.
