    What can you expect with us?

    A friendly team, varied work, and conversations and friendships with interesting guests. In terms of work, you can help with cleaning guest rooms, in the kitchen with washing up and setting tables, etc.

    We also have large garden areas, and could use help with mowing the lawns, trimming hedges, and general gardening. You will help our friendly groundskeeper with these tasks, as well as any repairs and other tasks as they arise (for example, painting benches and play equipment).

    In the winter months we do a lot of renovating, so we would love some help with that.

    There are always lots of things to do, so you won´t be bored. We consider it very important however, that you get the opportunity to enjoy your free time, and get to experience the beautiful surroundings, meet interesting people and relax. For this reason we never expect you to work more than 5 hours a day, and we can always offer suggestions for things to do in your free time. In addition to free time after work, you get two free days every week (usually weekends but possibly during the week) where you can explore the surroundings.

    It is very helpful if you can speak a little German, as some of our staff only speak German. Everything works just a little bit smoother when we can all understand each other. You definitely don´t have to be fluent (just a basic understanding), and you will surely improve during your stay.

    We look forward to meeting you!

    Bei uns stehen große Renovierungsarbeiten an. Räume, Treppenhaus, Flure malern.

    Wir freuen uns auf Sie!!!!

  • Accommodation


    You will get a room in a family apartment with a bathroom, and a small kitchen, living room and TV. We have Wifi. If you are the only the only Workawayer, you will get the entire apartment to yourself. If there are a few Workawayers, you will share the apartment (and in very rare cases, also the bedroom, however we will let you know if this is the case) .

    In addition, you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with our guests from the buffet prepared by our chefs. Vegetarians and lactose free food can easily be arranged.

    Sometimes it is necessary (if we are fully booked) to spend one or two nights away. For example, you could spend some time exploring Dresden, Berlin or Prague, and then come back to us. Of course we will let you know if this will be the case (always before your arrival).

    Familienapartment und Vollpension.
    eventuell wird es nötig innerhalb des Aufenthaltes von einem in ein anderes Apartment umzuziehen.
