  • Description


    Hi there.

    I'm Ulrike and I live with my husband Gerhard in a small town in Lower Saxony. I work as an artiasan and Gerhard is already pensioner.
    We spend many weekends on markets around our region. Over there, we sell mostly silhouettes, which I saw from wood.
    The christmas season is our main business, where we have to do a lot of work. We are still living in our big frame house, which is great, but also a lot of things needs to be done there.

    If you are interested in helping us by doing some work in the house and / or to prepare the markets (market stands / products and selling the articles), you're welcome.
    We are happy if you've got a driving license and a health insurance which is valid for Germany.

    In return, you'll have the possibility to discover our region and exceptionally wonderfull Christmas markets. While you're at it, you'll have the opportunity to improve your German and to meet many gentle people.

    We hope to see you soon
    Ulrike and Gerhard

  • What else ...

    Our town, Dassel, is small. There are only some shops (of course a supermarket),but it's a great place if you are a fan of nature cause of the wooden area (Solling).
    In addition, it's located pretty much in the middle of Germany. That means you can reach Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne within 3-4 hours.

    We would like to integrate you a bit in our big family (we have got five children and two grandchildren, who are from time to time in Dassel). So be sure that we will be generous with our time.
    And if you want to to spend some free time on your own, you can borrow you a bike or you can take your car (if we don't need it for our markets).
