Worldwide connections

Rapp Auctions has fostered excellent connections to collectors, investors, dealers, institutions and private buyers from all over the world for the past 50 years.

Outstanding selection

Rapp Auctions regularly hold auctions in all departments at a very high, international level, and here, collections and individual items worth well over half a billion have gone under the hammer over the past decades.

Online and in-person auctions

Our reliable and sophisticated online bidding system allows thousands of potential buyers from all over the world to participate in our auctions. These simultaneously take place in person at our auction house and online, meaning that the number of interested buyers greatly increases.

Excellent returns

Thanks to the high-calibre selection, Rapp Auctions consistently achieve excellent returns on items, for example, we’ve held the turnover record of 33 million Swiss francs for a stamp auction for decades now. We aim for transparency so publish all auction results on our website and in printed results reports.

Quality of service

Business relationships based on trust are at the heart of our work. That means that the quality of the service we offer our customers is as important to us as the quality of the collections and items that we auction.

Credit rating, security, independence

Rapp Auctions is an owner-led, joint-stock company which is 100% family owned. We are not influenced by external parties. Equity capital and a number of properties secure larger items. We consistently pay out proceeds 4 to 6 weeks after every auction.

Personal Commitment

Peter Rapp, Marianne Rapp Ohmann and their team personally look after each and every customer, tailored to their individual needs. We regularly offer expert consultations in our auction house as well as in various cities in Switzerland and Austria. For valuable items, we can arrange home visits or to meet directly at your local bank.


Rapp Auctions has been a leading auction house and has seen unwavering success over the past 50 years.
