    Description

    I am a retired teacher (Maths and Politics) (born in 1946), living now after my retirement in this very little village (about 110 people). I am engaged in the activities of my neighbourhood and I am happy to "share" my guests with some of the neighbours.

    Accommodation

    inside the house is still something like a construction site, so accomodation is a little bit primitiv (guest beds)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    My village is located 80 km south east of Hamburg, some nice little towns are not far away: Lüneburg, Schwerin, Dömitz, Lauenburg .... Distance to the river Elbe is 12 km by car or 8 km as a bird. -
    Activities: the village is situated in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Elbe; nearby is the Elbe bike trail; a lot of farms around here keep old fashioned cattle (cows, pigs, chicken etc.).
    Speaking of smoking: not inside the house!
