 Min stay requested: 1 month or more



  • Description


    Dear travellers!
    We are an open minded and relaxed family living in a house with other students. We are in the center of a historical University town close to historical buildings, like the castle on the top of the hill or the church of Saint Elisabeth.

    The river, the forest, but also the the medieval center of the city with the shops are in walking distance. We are next to the oldest protestant University in Germany with 25 thousand students. The atmosphere in the city is very young and lively. There is a lot of culture, but also the opportunity to bike or to walk. It is easy to participate in classes or cultural events or to meet young people. Inhabitants of the city are allowed to be guest students and thats's why some of our workawayers became students.

    We are one train hour from Frankfurt.

    We have had people living with us for over 15 years... aupairs, workawayers, visitors and students living in the house from the US, England, Scotland, Wales, the Netherlands, France, Denmark, Poland, Germany, Israel, Italy, Malaysia, India, China, South Africa and Canada.

    We are used to share our space and we love to welcome people who are also open minded, curious, creative and have positive energy.
    You will share a house with other students next door. You will have your own furnished room there and share the kitchen and the garden... This little students' community is very kind and often workawayers spend free time with them...We have had this cooperation for years and everybody was happy with it.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    From October until February and from April until August the University offers plenty of classes and programs -also in English- where you can choose from. You can experience a traditional and vital German university town with lots of young people from all over the world.

    There are also plenty of language classes in different schools.

    Our place is good to learn about classical music, art and European history, because we also are interested in this and work with it and because we live in a very historical place. We love to share knowledge. Cultural exchange could be about languages, food, music, art and much more.
