Update: We won't be at the house in July, so we can't offer any cultural exchange. If you are a couple/friends and don't mind being alone at the house, feel free to reach out. We will put our trust into people with taking care of themselves alone on the ground and tasks.
We are a couple with two kids who are living a little bit north of Copenhagen. Our main life is up here next to the beautiful Esrum lake (sø). We have travelled to many places, and we love to hear new exciting stories from other cultures! We are an international couple which means that Patrick is danish and I am German. Our common language is English, but don't worry we can teach you some words from our native languages. :)

We can offer you great insights into Danish life and culture! We are surrounded by the beautiful nature of Denmark, which helps you to explore the area! We are going to the city 2-3 times per week (45 minutes drive) so if your schedule fits to ours then we can take you obviously with us. Otherwise, there is also a train station close by plus you can borrow our bikes.
We would really like to get our garden ready and beautiful again. Since it is quite big, we just can't get the workload done. We want to build a little shed in the garden, build a carport, maybe a treehouse for the kids. The plants and the vegetable box needs to be in shape again as other gardening things. We also have the idea of building a new fence so that we can have some goats or sheep's.
Besides that, we would need someone in the household who could clean and keep things organised. As with Kids, the mess starts with toys and stuff everywhere.
If you can help us out with electrical stuff like fixing lamps and electricity or setting up laptops for the kids, that would also be a good start.
You will have your bedroom in a small house next to hours. It is filled with a double bed, wardrobe and cupboards so you can store your things (especially for long-/stays).
We will sometimes have food together but it won’t be every day. We want you to have your privacy or your night out as well as we want to. We have a big kitchen where you can use all the facilities and you are welcome to cook with your own stuff :)
We are very easygoing and social but we also understand the concept of privacy. We want to have a good stay with you together.
In your time off you can explore the nature around us, go to the lake or I bike to the ocean. As already mentioned, you can go to the city by train or sometimes with us.
