  • Description


    We are an open minded couple, both 55 years old, and live in a nature paradise with chicken, a lovely dog and two friendly cats about 90 km southeast of Hamburg and 240 km west of Berlin. We have already traveled almost the entire world since we are very interested in different cultures, people and nature. Anne was working as a flight attendant at Lufthansa and Kai has also traveled the world for several years.

    Now we have settled down in our paradise in an area called Wendland which is very famous for its cultural and artist people and offers. Travellers from all over Germany come here especially around Pentecost to enjoy the great concerts, theatres and artist offers. Beside that you can explore great forests, the river Elbe (20 minute walk away) and lakes where you can go swimming in the summer.

    Except for our interest in other cultures, people, music (Anne likes to play the violin) and art we are also interested in awareness extension, yoga and meditation. If you want you are welcome to join our daily meditation practice.

    We also like to welcome people who are interested to have an insight of the social work since Kai works as an educator (formerly he worked as an artteacher in a Rudolf-Steiner-school) and we operate a residental group with 4 young people.
    We speak English, French and little Spanish.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You can reach our little village Bahrendorf either from Hamburg or Berlin in 1,5h. From Lüneburg (the biggest city nearby) the train takes 40 minutes.

    To come here take the train to Leitstade (from Hamburg eg the ticket costs 8,70€ with the public transport HVV), from there we will pick you up.

    We live in a nature conservation area close to the river Elbe. In this area you can still find wolves and beavers (but you don´t have to be afraid - the wolves are very shy!)
    Nearby you can also find a lot of places to go horseriding, canoeing, biking or hiking. If you like medieval towns, you can visit Hitzacker or Lüneburg.
