Re: What are the obligations for showing a house or apartment that you are moving out

@Urs Max: yeah, I figured the same things. Plus additional - you don't have to allow landlord to make photos of the flat with all your things in it, says on the tenant's association page. Which makes sense, the flat is going to be rented empty plus it's your privacy.

I wonder if there was ever determined what's the minimum slots you have to give to the landlord for Switzerland, since it's not explicit in the law itself.
I'm not aware of any clear guidelines. IMO that wouldn't make sense, as leaving after a year or two is vastly different from two decades. In the latter case viewings probably make little sense before the work necessary has been done, fresh paint alone can go a long ways.

10-15 minutes should easily be enough to view a standard-size apartment. If none out of 10-15 candidates is willing to take it, increasing their number is no use.

Sorry, I know far too little to comment on the situation in Germany.

Re: What are the obligations for showing a house or apartment that you are moving out

The OP is leaving the apartment in orderly fashion - so not obligated to look for a "Nachmieter".

In the OP's situation, to prevent phone calls I would:
- Give the landlord a list of times / dates, limited according to my convenience when they can fix viewing appointments for prospective tenants, and insist on 2 days' notice of any appointment
- Let the landlord do the arranging
- Make sure all valuables are securely locked away / nailed down

To be helpful I would try to keep the place as ship-shape as possible

If OP wants to look for a Nachmieter, then they need to be more proactive about it as others have said on the thread.

Cheers,
Nick
