    Good Host
  • Description


    Our house, surrounded by breathtaking mountain landscape is in need of building upgrades, yard maintenance and helping hands. We are a couple who have turned their backs on the bustle of the city. Now we enjoy the rhythm of the seasons in rural work. Our garden is situated on a south-facing, sunny hillside. You will find a fireplace with grill and walking ten minutes you will reach a beautiful lake or a romantic gorge. Only a few kilometers from here there is the National Park with wild animal enclosures. We can give you a bicycle for varied tours or you can climb the highest mountains of the Bavarian Forest. We look forward to international contacts, different lifestyles and exciting conversations. It excites us to find the common interests that unify us despite all differences. Only one request, our guests should be Non smoking.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a medicinal herb school. By working in the garden you can accumulate a lot of knowledge in this area. Furthermore here is much space for innovative design ideas . Together we can inspire us and than realize what we found . Either in stone , with tile , plaster, wood or other materials.

    We would like our Workawayers to bring a little craftmanship for the following activities. For example, watering plants, removing weeds, digging plants, planting vegetable beds, collecting potato beetles, helping build a garden wall, building a composting toilet and much more.
