  • Description


    I have no mountain to climb, no cliff to jump off, no ocean or dessert in front of my house.
    I am a traveller myself. I want to offer a space for travellers, so they can rest and improve their skills, learning some German, playing my rusted guitar, teaching my two cats juggling with the chainsaw....
    Close to my house is a forrest with a little creak and with bicycle paths for downhill drivers... horses nearby.
    A good place to study. Very quiet.
    Waldorf Pädagogic Institute and University of Witten nearby. You can connect with very interesting people from the Institute of Walldorf. Dortmund Center 12Min. by train. Bochum Center 12Min. by train. Witten center 20 min. by bycicle.

    Fire, sometimes, at the evening at the fireplace. If You play an instrument, great. Otherwise You can pick one of my collection. I live with my daughter (14), 9 hens,1 cock, 1 cat, one rabbit.
