We are running a hut, lodge (or hostel in some places) located in the first and oldest National Park in Germany. Our hut is just minutes next to the second summit of the Bavarian Forest called Rachel. We are surrounded by spectacular mountain views and wildlife and visited by locals, hikers und mountain climbers. We are three friends running this place for summer season.
Aside from this hut, we have a tiny farmhouse in a small town just 40 minutes by car. During the summer season we commute between this hut and the farm daily.
We provide tasty home cooked meals, a small dining- and loungeroom, dormitory styled bedrooms and a beer garden. We enjoy serving good quality local food and drinks. We are travellers ourselves and we welcome travellers from all over the world who would like to experience our culture and help us with day to day runnings.
For help at the business, we pay 9€ per hour (Please note: visa, german working permit or/and EU citizenship required).
Workhours can vary, but what we would ask is a minimum of 3 hours per day. The comfort of our visitors (yourself and the guests) are of most importance to us.
Please note, the hut is 1360 meters up and 1.5 hours hike from the nearest valley. There is no shops, bars or anything else around, just pure nature. Wifi Signal isn't available at the hut, mobile and LTE excellent though.
Nevertheless we are having a lot of fun up here and don't miss much!
Our farmhouse is 5km from the next city with bars, shops.... so you are only remote if you want.
If this sounds like your type of fun, we look forward to hearing from you! Also we request no minimum or maximum length of stay. Best wishes, Sigi, Rudi and Lilli

As already said, we are travellers ourselves and we welcome travellers from all over the world who would like to experience our culture and help us with day to day runnings.
Workawayers can choose between the hut and the farmhouse. Since there is "self-service" at the hut only , we basically just need help for the food preparation, cleaning, shopping and tapping beer ;-)
The jobs at the farmhouse are just very basic - there are no animals yet so it's more or less general maintenance.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
Our farmhouse provides a private room for workawayers, we share kitchen, living room (TV), bathroom together. The farm is 5km next to the city, however we pass all kind of shops while we commute to our mountain hut.
The Bavarian Forrest offers so many types of activities for your time off. It's a hot spot for hickers, mountain bikers, wildlife watchers and so many more. We can help everyone to find the perfect passion.
