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 organise a number of workshops myself, mostly folk dancing and music.
Our animals are very important to us; we have wild boars, cats, ducks, chickens and ponies and occasionally foster animals...

Help in the house
I enjoy helping 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 our property, cycling - you can try one of my recumbent bikes, join in the weekly Scottish country dance evenings, or some of the many courses taking place in the mill. We also have a sauna onsite with the mill pond to dip in after. You can also join me on an excursion to some of the interesting places of the area such as the famous round villages or picturesque Salzwedel, an old town once belonging to the powerful medieval trading union The Hanse.
We do have competent regular staff for our paying guests, but as I am very busy with the guests and in the office, as well as organising courses, I need help in my private premesis. Jobs include cleaning the house, gardening, general handyman, 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 animals, 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.
Gipsy caravan or cabin in beautiful surroundings about 100m from the house if all guest rooms are taken.
