    Good Host
  • Description


    We are a young couple, Martin and Katja, who is living in Saxony, Germany in a quiet little village with lots of beautiful nature around. The cities Chemnitz, Leipzig and Dresden are easy to access by bus or train. We appreciate all kinds of help around our house and garden. We work from Monday through Friday but love to go on little adventures on the weekends like climbing, horseback riding, camping, sleeping in a cave, canoeing, biking, skiing... and you are welcome to spend those things with us.

    I (Katja) spend a lot of time training my horses. If you are an experienced rider you are welcome to do that with me. I’m happy to teach you my methods and learn from you too. Depending on your skills we can do some horse trails together.

    This year we are starting to build up our own little ranch next to our house. Therefore we appreciate creative hands-on persons. At the stable we always need help mucking out, feeding and training (only experienced) the horses.

    You should be independent since you work a lot on your own when we’re at work, we like if you see the work and just do it, we try to have dinner together but sometimes it’s not possible so you should be able to cook for yourself.

    You are welcome to use one of our bikes to explore and there is a busstop closeby from where you can go to different directions. There’s also a mall (10min by bike) if you like shopping.
