  • Description

    Description

    Our little family of four (presently enlarged through nephew Armin) lives in a tiny idyllic village of 10 houses in the Upper Austrian "Innviertel", about 30 kilometer from Salzburg. 10 years ago we bought our estate, a former noble seat which was built in the late middle ages. The previous owner fondly renovated the house and we feel very comfortable in our own historic four walls.

    Our daughter Anna spent the last half year wwoofing on Australia´s east coast - that´s why we thougt it would be a nice idea to welcome voluntary workers from all over the world in our home. You will be treated as part of the family and we´ll try our best to show you what our area has to offer (Salzburg, lakes,..).

    Your work consists of different types of light work in house and garden like weeding or planting mostly along side Andrea, for which no experience is required. Because we know through own experiences that you will love to keep the contact with your family and friends at home we provide you access to our free wifi.

    If you wish to come with your own car we´ve got a lot of parking space for this. Otherwise we could pick you up from any train station nearby as well as from Salzburg with prior notice. We are looking forward to meeting you!


    Unsere kleine vierköpfige Familie (derzeit durch Neffen Armin erweitert) lebt in einem kleinen idyllischen Weiler mit 10 Häusern im oberösterreichischen Innviertel, ca. 30 Kilometer von Salzburg entfernt . Vor 10 Jahren kauften wir uns unseren Hof, einen ehemaligen Edelsitz, der im Spätmittelalter erbaut wurde. Mit viel Liebe hat unser Vorbesitzer das Haus renoviert und auch wir fühlen uns sehr wohl in unseren eigenen historischen vier Wänden. Unsere Tochter Anna hat das letzte halbe Jahr mit wwoofen an der australischen Ostküste verbracht - dadurch sind auch wir auf die Idee gekommen dass es nett wäre, Freiwilligenarbeiter aus aller Welt bei uns willkommen zu heißen. Ihr werdet als Teil der Familie behandelt und wir sind sehr bemüht Euch zu zeigen was unsere Region zu bieten hat (Salzburg, Seen,...). Zu deinen Aufgaben zählen leichte Arbeiten in Haus und Garten wie zum Beispiel jäten oder neue Pflanzen einpflanzen, die meist in Zusammenarbeit mit Andrea durchgeführt werden und deinen Vorlieben und Fähigkeiten angepasst werden können und für die keine vorherigen Erfahrungen notwendig sind. Da es uns aus eigener Erfahrung bewusst ist, dass man bei solchen Aufenthalten natürlich gerne weiterhin mit Freunden und Familie in Kontakt bleibt, stellen wir euch selbstverständlich unser Wlan zur Verfügung. Falls ihr mit dem eigenen Auto anreisen wollt gibt es genug Parkmöglichkeit, ansonsten holen wir euch auch gerne nach vorheriger Absprache von einem Bahnhof in der Umgebung oder von Salzburg ab. Wir freuen uns auf dich!

    Salzburg has been the capital of an independent state from the early 14th century until 1805. It was ruled by prince-archbishops, who became rich from the salt mines located in the south of the city. This led to the architectural gem you see today as not only materials, but also architects, were imported from Italy and other European countries. This is also the reason why, compared to other Austrian cities, sacred monuments outnumber the few secular buildings. This is how Salzburg got its nickname as "the Rome of the north". Everywhere you go in this city, you see and read about the legacy of the Archbishops.
