  • Description


    My family and I together with a board of trustees run a foundation focusing on arts and theatre of the early 20th century in northern Germany. My wife and I have two girls of ten and seven years and a Boy of five years. We live in the main house and the premises include a 20 acre park with a listed mansion of around 40 rooms as well as two other Buildings rented out. There is a horse-steeple for 65 horses on the foundations ground as well. As we all work for the foundation as volunteers and have "regular" Jobs on top of that, help of all sorts is always more than welcome.
    The foundation is beautifully situated on the outskirts of Bremen and is quite unique in it's preservation of the art and society of the early 20th century.
