    Description

    Note: We would love to have someone with experience with carpentry to help finish building our summer hut outside the house. We also would love someone being happy with doing gardening or cooking.

    We live in a beautiful part of Bavaria with lots to see and explore around us. Take our bike and go swimming or canoeing in one of our beautiful lakes (20 min by bike to lake Staffelsee), go mountain climbing (35 min by train to Garmisch-Partenkirchen) or go skiing. We’re 40 min away from Munich by train if you prefer the city. Castles from king Ludwig are also popular. We also have a nice garden where we often play table tennis or badminton in the summer.

    We live about 2km from the train station with frequent trains to Munich and Garmisch, and there’s occasionally a bus going as well. We’re happy to pick you up at the railway station in Huglfing.

    A little bit about us:
    We were travelling and wwoofing around the world when we were young. We really loved this and want to offer this possibility to others. We have four nearly adult sons. Two own children (22,18) and two care sons from Afghanistan (18,17). The two little ones still live at home with us. The oldest one is travelling around the world with his Italian girlfriend. There is also a nice Swedish guy (25) living with us. He came to us as a workawayer and eventually got a job and settled down. We also have two lovely cats (so unfortunately we don’t allow dogs)!

    We love playing music, singing and we would be very happy to play together. We play cello, a little guitar and piano. We would love to have you if you play any instruments.

    If we are all here we eat together. If we are at work or somewhere else everybody cooks or eats on their own. Fridge always is useable! We mostly cook vegetarian organically grown food.

    Accomodation: We have a nice caravan in front of the building where you can stay. You can also set up a tent in our nice garden if you wish. We might also be able to offer our guest room in the house if it is not occupied.

    If you stay in the caravan and buy and cook your own food you only have to work 14 hours (as opposed to 25).

    Insurance: You need a liability insurance to visit us (check with your travel insurance).

    Come and join us!
