  • Description


    We are a family of four (three human beings and a little dog;) very open minded and easygoing people, living heavenly idyllic in the middle of nowhere on the peninsula Eiderstedt, very close to the North Sea (6 km to the next beach access and 20 km to the famous St.Peter-Ording beach, where we're letting cottages to holiday guests frequently with rescued dogs). So it's a great combination between contemplation and fun, a dream if you like nature, (kite) - surfing and culture:)
    Our home is a historic 'Haubarg' from the 18th century with very old roots in the 14th century.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    There's a lot to learn about the sea and its animals, alternative energy sources and sustainability.
    We live at the UNESCO World Heritage Site 'The wadden sea national park' !
    We have a lot of fruit trees and we're producing jam, chutney and juice of apple, plum, quince, rosehip, hawthorn and dandelion!
    Don't panic, it's organic:)

    You are very welcome as a volunteer if you like:

    - learning languages

    - surfing
    - having fun and a good time

    Our hours are mostly flexible and only at some days mainly at the week-end on time please, 4-5 hours daily average.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our internet access in the middle of nowhere is kind of not that fast;)
    There's no landline phone, we have mobile network only.
    It's G4 and starting in 2020 maybe G5 but still limited in gigabytes, so it's pretty good for mail, whatsapp and basic internet applications but not available for bigger up and downloads and movie streamings, netflix or spotify!

    Our daughter graduated from high school last year, currently she's passing a voluntary social year in the Balkans starting in August for the NGO "Schüler Helfen Leben". Occasionally you can help her with the organization of charitable work in St. Peter-Ording. While she's absent, you can use her car.

    Hamburg 100 km, Husum 30 km, Tönning 10 km, Sankt Peter-Ording 20 km, Westerhever lighthouse 20 km, Denmark and Sylt 100 km, Hallig boat trip 50 km, seal boat trip 10 km.
    Bus stop 500 m, railway station Katharinenheerd 3 km.

    We are also looking for someone to tune our piano. So if you're a piano maker or you've got piano tuning experience, please get in touch! Klavierstimmer gesucht, wir suchen jemanden zum Klavier stimmen!
