Young Leipzig Family. Georg (31), Katharina (30) Momo (3) and number 4 to come in autumn are running a small independent film production company. We love having projects like renovating our garden house, making a campervan out of our van or improving our little garden in the colony or apartment. Sometimes when one of us is busy at work and happy to have some help in the household and with our little daughter. Please do check further down in our profile exactly what kind of help we currently are looking for and explain a bit why you think that we would have fun together. We are very into films, music and sports. Love to bike and be outside. Living in an atelier house full of artists in western leipzig close to the alternative life hot spot Karl Heine Strasse.
Help in the house
We can teach you some German and show you Leipzig and it’s creative world. Can tell you a lot about filmmaking and, of course, gardening!
Looking for someone to help renovate our garden house, planting vegetables, taking care of our garden, watering plants, etc.
There is some harder work (putting a shelf in the garden house, putting a new floor etc.) what we always will do together, otherwise the garden watering and getting rid a bit of unwanted grasses is your daily task but should take a max. of 1-2 hours a day and can be paused on the weekend. Probably 1-2 days a week we would try to organise a bigger project, for example building a green house or a shelf in the garden house what we will do together.
German, English, French, some spanish
you will have a romantic stay in our 15m2 garden house in a garden colony- it is 15-20 min walking distance from the central station of leipzig, so you are in a green hub in the middle of the city ! you should imagine it like the tiny witches house of the Hansel and Gretel tale but in the middle of a blooming garden full of flowers and vegetables.
A PLACE YOU WILL ENJOY IF YOU LOVE CAMPING AND NATURE, IF YOU DON'T PLEASE DON'T CONSIDER STAYING HERE !
the house will be all yours alone, we only will come on the weekends and probably 1 day per week to be in the garden.
the house has a bigger room (12m2) with a bed, fridge, kitchen corner, etc. where you will sleep in a 1.40m bed and also a small room (3m2) with a toilet and our garden tools.
in front of the house there is a Terrasse with an outdoor kitchen with a sink (only cold water). there also is a solar outdoor shower next to the terrace. there is no sink/bathroom inside the house, only outside but the shower is protected from unwanted views !
there is electricity in the garden house / terrace but there is no internet (though very good 3G connection as it is very central in the city).
if the weather is really bad or you wish to have a proper shower, there is an indoor swimming pool (costs 2-3 euros) just 5 min walking distance. of course you are also welcome at hour house in case of nasty weather of urgent need of proper shower/internet - though we do not have a separate room for you in our apartment.
there is a barbecue in the garden and a cooking plate - and the best of all: your food is just growing a few meters from you - of course you harvest what you want during your stay.
As we are a family we are often cooking/having a barbecue together in the garden. We are not vegetarians but only very rarely eat meat. In our garden there normally are basic things to eat, but if you need something special there are super markets / lots of restaurants in just 10 min walking distance.
please don't hesitate if you have any questions about this very special place ! we think that it is especially perfect for young couples that like to be in the romantic nature - but even if you come alone you will quickly make friends as there are lots of young people in the colony that are sharing a garden.
As we are filmmakers we know very well the creative scene of Leipzig.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 5 hours a day, maximum 5 days a week, really depends the moment you come, also can be much less !
