  • Description



    we live in a house on the edge of Cologne. The Connection to the City is very good. It takes you about 30 min. by bus or train. We have also a bicycle for you.

    With our food we put very big value of quality. So the most is organic and whole food.
    We eat mostly vegetarian only about two times a week we cook meat or fish.

    We are artisans and make jewellery from old silver cutlery. We are selling our goods on craft-markets as well on Christmas markets.

    It is not the first time that we will be hosts. During the last years we had several guests. They came from Germany, the States, France, Chile, Costa Rica, Columbia, Spain, Taiwan, Argentina, Slovakia and Japan.

    We speak quite good English and also some Spanish.

    Two kilometers away lives our daughter with her husband and her three little children. They also work as artisans.

    We are really excited to get to know you and hope you will enjoy the stay at our home.

    Please look at our calendar if we need somebody for the time you would like to come.

    Normally our guests live in the apartment in the basement of our house. But since recently our workshop is located there. Because our former rented workshop is being demolished.
    Therefore you will stay in our old caravan which stands in our driveway. Our caravan is a beautiful old Hymer Eriba. It has a little kitchen inside and a washroom with toilet. In the basement of our house you have a bathroom with toilet and shower.
    The caravan has space for person. Normally we use it at the weekends when we are on markets.
