  • Beschreibung


    Niederhosenbach is the name of the small village (less than 300 people) we are living in. Nowerdays it is known as the place of birth from „Hildegard von Bingen“.
    We are:
    * Katja, the mom, is teaching music and sports in school
    * Andy, the dad, is taking care for house, animals, kids and is making music
    * Paul and Paula, the two kids (6 & 8)
    * Grosi, the grandma

    Beside us there are Mexx, the dog – Tom, the cat and Hesting, Nina, Harlem & Benny, the 4 horses.
    For this year we plan to house 5 or more chicken and we want to start with some vegetable gardening, supported by Benny, a 5 year old Noriker gelding.

    The name of our house means something like "the new house from the miller" - is located at the "Hildegard v. Bingen pilgrims way" and so we have a little station for the pilgrims to rest or to stay the night.

    Our house is a very musical house. Katja is playing clarinet, saxophone and piano; Andy is singing in a band; Grosi is singing in a choir and the kids are … this & that ;-)

    You will stay in the room, which is also used for the pilgrims. In case of an overnight stay - which is not happening very often - there is another room that can be used and there is also a PC with Internet connection.
    Meals are provided in the dining room or outside from the grill. People in this area are „barbecueing“ nearly the whole year through :-)
    If you are a smoker, please smoke exclusively outside!

    If you love the nature and if you love to stay in a quiet place, Niederhosenbach will be perfect for you. The next market is 3 km away, there are a couple of buses leaving Niederhosenbach in the morning. Next „bigger“ city with a railway station is about 10 km. A train is going every hour to the bigger cities like Mainz, Saarbrücken, …
    So, you see, we are a little bit in the middle of nowhere, but there are many things to discover in our area and we have an airport about 25 km away: Frankfurt Hahn.
    During summer we spent most of time outside, having a campfire in the evening – singing, eating and just enjoying life :-)
    At the weekends we love to roam around by feet, with horse, ...
