  • Description


    We are a family of 3, a Swiss and Bavarian couple in our late 30ies and our baby-boy 15 months. We all like to go outdoor. We love to travel and meet new people from different cultures. We live in a remote place in the Swiss Alps in a village with 300 inhabitants on 850 metres above sealevel. The soft tourism here offers - still - a variety of attractions but you can also find some untouched or calm places in mother nature.
    The capital Glarus is reached in 30 minutes by public transportation.
    We have a big house (hostel) in which we welcome guests from all over the world. We have a lot of projects in line and are happy for help. In high season (holiday times), we have more household work, preparing rooms or looking after the baby and some little projects, in low season we have bigger projects, like refurbish a little apartment, remove our garden house and build a smaller one, or other things.

    As a Swiss and Bavarian couple, who also love to travel, we are open to all cultures and want to show travellers our culture and nature of the Swiss Alps.

  • Help


    My husband is building everything on his own as a carpenter, so he will need some help with some projects and you can learn a lot from him. We need also help with gardening (spring, summer autumn), so if you have experience in this field, we would be happy for a helping hand. We mostly need help to clean our roomy household - we are flexible, creative and have a lot of ideas and are also open to your ideas.
