  • Description

    Description

    I live on my own in a large traditional country house which was built in 1904 as a remote train station to connect the village with the next town. The railroad was already removed in 1930 but the house was converted into a farm and guesthouse. The place is located in 1 km distance to the nearest village (500 inhabitants). The village "Otersen" has been portrayed by German TV as the "Paradise at the (river) Aller".
