  • Description


    The thuringian hinterland: heart of germany, cradle of its culture and impressed by the spirit of reformation... - New impulses welcome! Find us in the beautiful landscape between the cities of Weimar, Jena and Leipzig. A big familiy with 7 kids lives in a small hamlet and rebuilds the houses of an old farmstead. Greenfields and apple trees, pears and walnut, sheep and poultry behind the barn. A paradise to spend a week or more, joining our everyday life, to help us with the garden, plastering with earth, building with wood - or to cook a meal you can do best, to sing us your favorite songs from home. Bring us a whiff of the big wide world! Sandra & Paul

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We like to take meals together, to sit round the campfire during the summer and spend as much time as possible together. Sports, music and theatre are the main issues of our interests and professions. Step by step we are looking forward, how we can make our place a venue of social-cultural gathering in the hinterland during the coming years. In the cities nearby you will find the roots of classical german literature. And even Leipzig is a prospering city hosting essential german culture, music and media.

  • Help


    We can need any help you‘d like to offer. The ongoing projects are our guestrooms and an associated kitchen with bathroom for guests and events in the yard. We are about to install a professional fruit press for to start a small business in this years season. We will really need help in august, september and october with building/ constructing and reaping/gathering apples and other fruits.
    And of course there is the rest of the kitchen-garden with the strawberries, potatos, tomatos and the wine that need care as well - explore the power of your green thump ;-)
    It could also be helpful to have someone in the kitchen, so we don‘t have to interrupt the work for cooking.

    If you can get on a sackful of kids... don‘t hesitate.

  • Accommodation


    The guestrooms should be finished during the summer 2019. until that days we can offer a big bed in our private office inside the living-house or we will place tents for you under the trees. Sometimes we can even use a good friends caravan. You can of course join our restrooms, one of our two bathrooms, take showers or even a bath. It will be quite familiar.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    next cities: Jena 25km, Weimar 45km, Leipzig 60km. Next grocery 2km. You can use a bike to see the landscape. There is nearly no public transport out here. We go to Jena by car 2 times a day during school-period, 2 times a week to Weimar. We can also help you on the way to the next train-station. And of course it will be a pleasure to help you organizing your further trip. If you will come to us by train, we’ll pick u up in Naumburg. If you use an airplane Leipzig (intl.) would be the closest destination.
