About us | Our values
It’s not about apartments, it’s about relationships
Guest, Host, Us
Our journey started with the dream of both Traum-Ferienwohnungen founders, who have invested a lot of love into the project so that our guests can experience their dream holiday with us, and hosts can let their apartment with our help. Love and affection are the foundation of every strong, personal connection, be it within the family, or between friends, colleagues, guests, or hosts. We believe that love arises when people are honest with each other and work together with passion. And this is also reflected in our logo.
We believe in
because they come true if you just work hard enough at them
because it’s what makes life worth living
because it is the foundation of every strong personal relationship
because they mean unity, community, relaxation, and happiness
because everyone should feel at home – whether at work or on holiday
because they give us strength. They can lead to extraordinary experiences
“Create moments that really count.” Moments from which sustainable relationships can grow. Moments you tell your grandchildren about.
It all began with this holiday home
It all started with my parents’ holiday home, which they wanted to advertise on the Internet at the time. To do this, I brought in my friend Nico. That was the starting point for Traum-Ferienwohnungen.
We have been working on our dream since 2001
While I studied computer science, I was already helping friends and acquaintances in my home region by marketing their holiday accommodations online. Together with Sebastian, the idea for a regional marketplace was then born, and our dream began.
We love travelling with dogs
Why are humans allowed in hotels but not our four-legged friends? We know that travelling with dogs is a key issue for many guests. We love dogs and thus understand the needs of dog owners: can I take my dog with me or not? Is the property fenced in? Our listings provide the right answers to these and many other questions.
We support families
Family is very important to us. Traum-Ferienwohnungen was created out of love for our families. We would like to provide families with unforgettable holiday experiences with Traum-Ferienwohnungen. Since a holiday is not a given for every family, however, we have been supporting such families since 2014 and, as part of our campaign “Vacation on us”, are enabling them to take a break together during their holidays.
We see everyone eye-to-eye
We try, reflect and optimize ourselves and our work constantly. What grounds us is our community. We meet each other authentically and always at eye level.
We live and love freedom
We are convinced that guests and hosts should have the freedom to interact without artificial barriers. Trusting relationships can only be established through personal contact.
We think and act sustainably
Because of our generational consciousness, we think and act sustainably. We support families in making their journey carbon neutral.
We believe in the home
We believe in the home and do everything we can to make our guests on holiday and our staff at the office feel at home.
We are always ready to listen
Whether guest, host, or colleague, we try to solve any concerns, questions, or problems via dialogue. Being ready to listen helps us to avoid talking past each other and to work out solutions together. We are happy to receive both praise and criticism. Our door is always open.
We’re staying in Bremen
All the hip startups want to go to Berlin, but we love Bremen. We want to strengthen our region and create local jobs. That’s why we’re staying in our beautiful Hanseatic city. .
We believe in respect
We don’t want to talk past each other. The basis of any healthy relationship is to take the other person seriously, along with their desires and fears, and understand them.
We are hosts ourselves
We know hosts’ fears and worries because we, together with our families, are hosts, too. With more than 15 years of experience, we know what it takes to successfully let a holiday home.
We are experts on our homeland
No one knows their homeland as well as the hosts themselves. That’s why we work very closely with hosts and the DMOs of the region and therefore know the particularities of the regions very well. In so doing, we can always offer our guests just the right thing for their own personal circumstances.
