We are running a hut, lodge (or hostel in some places) located in the first and oldest National Park in Germany. Our hut is just minutes next to the second summit of the Bavarian Forest called Rachel. We are surrounded by spectacular mountain views and wildlife and visited by locals, hikers und mountain climbers. We are four friends running this place for summer season.
Aside from this hut, we live in a House with a small farm in a small town just 40 minutes by car. During the summer season we commute between this hut and the farm. We stay at the hut at least twice a week.
We provide tasty home cooked meals, a small dining- and loungeroom, dormitory styled bedrooms and a beer garden. We enjoy serving good quality local food and drinks. We are travellers ourselves and we welcome travellers from all over the world who would like to experience our culture and help us with day to day runnings.
For help at the business, we pay 9€ per hour (Please note: visa, german working permit or/and EU citizenship required).
Workhours can vary, but what we would ask is a minimum of 3 hours per day. The comfort of our visitors (yourself and the guests) are of most importance to us.
Please note, the hut is 1360 meters up and 1.5 hours hike from the nearest valley. There is no shops, bars or anything else around, just pure nature. Wifi Signal isn't available at the hut, mobile and LTE excellent though.
Nevertheless we are having a lot of fun up here and don't miss much!
Our House is 3 km from the next city with bars, shops.... so you are only remote if you want.
If this sounds like your type of fun, we look forward to hearing from you! Also we request no minimum or maximum length of stay. Best wishes, Sigi, Rudi, Lilli and Ava

Workawayers can choose between the hut and the house with a little farm with horses, 3 cats and 3 dogs. Since there is "self-service" at the hut only , we basically just need help for the food preparation, cleaning, shopping and tapping beer ;-)
The jobs in our house are just very basic - it's more or less general maintenance and a little help with the garden. We are also currently building a construction trailer to create another living space. We always need helping hands for this.
In summary, we can say that we live with workawayers in a community. Food and lodging is free for workawayers, but we expect to take turns in cooking, shopping and doing housework.
