    Come and enjoy the mix of French/German culture at the French-German border. We're right in the middle of Europe next to lovely Saarbrücken, between Luxembourg, Metz, Nancy, Strasbourg, Trier and Frankfurt. We are a German/Mexican-American couple who is in the process of moving from the US to Germany/France.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can offer German and Spanish conversations and some teaching. As we are right at the border you will have the chance to experience the German as well as the French culture. The UNESCO World Heritage sides 'Völklingen Steelworks', Trier and Nancy or Strasbourg are very close by. Saarbrücken itself is pretty influenced by French culture and cuisine while keeping it's German traditions as well.

    Help

    Currently we need help with renovation projects and small internal building projects, e.g. painting, tiling, small carpentry work, taking internal walls down (plasterboard), putting up a new kitchen, etc. So a little more specific than the usual general household help :).
