My home belongs to a historic watermill situated in a beautiful area about 2 hours drive from Hamburg, Bremen, Hannover and Magdeburg. Our nextdoor neighbours are half a mile away....
The mill is a convention centre open for all kinds of workshops, but I also organize a number of workshops myself, mostly folk dancing and music.
Our animals are very important to us, wild boars, cats, ducks, chicken and ponies, though unfortunately we can't offer horseriding because they're elderly or too young ...

Help in the house
I like to help you improve your German! We are situated in a very rural area, so you can spend your free time walking one of the many nature trails surrounding us, cycling - you can try one of my recumbent bikes, and join in the weekly Scottish country dance evenings or some of the many courses taking place in the mill, enjoy the sauna with the mill pond to dip in or join me on an excursion to some of the interesting places of the area.
From th 11th of February we need help renovating a beautiful wooden dance spring floor!
We do have competent regular staff, but as I am very busy with the guests and in the office, as well as organising courses, I need help in my private premises. Jobs include cleaning the house, gardening, general handyman-jobs in my house and garden, and repairing my collection of recumbent bicycles and/or antique furniture. You may also be asked to help feed, care for and muck the stables for our different kinds of animals (including wild boar, ponies, chickens, ducks and cats - or perhaps babysit them to enable me to take a few days off.
Please note that, due to the nature of my business, working hours will be flexible and will change according to the situation at any given time. But I will take care that you get free time to enjoy as well!
We do not ask for help with the business
