  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Leipzig is a beautiful city, now often called "Hypezig", as there is such a big "hype" about it. Leipzig has a huge cultural scene, with lots of galleries, urban gardening, political/artsy/other projects, many cute cafés and nice restaurants (a lot of vegan ones!), parks, independent cinemas, bars and clubs and super friendly people. Compared to other German cities it is quite cheap (food, fun stuff, ...) and it is super easy to get to places with public transportation (tram, bus, metro) or by bike. I have a bike that you can use. It is also close to the capital Berlin (and just 8€ by bus!) and to other east German cities like Dresden.

    Things to do for example: Explore abandoned factories and other old buildings, go to the two lakes, explore the city and do sight seeing stuff, go to the climbing hall, watch movies in german or english at one of the many independent cinemas, go on bicycle or hiking trips, eat yummy and cheap food at "Voküs" (peoples kitchens - you get food for a little donation), visit galleries, go to thrift shops and cool little other shops, go to concerts, go to fleemarkets (like the "Agra" - Europes biggest antique market), hang out at the "Sachsenbrücke" (Saxony bridge) in the park - there are often concerts/fire jugglers/... and it's a hang out spot for young people; going slacklining in the park, feminist kickboxing classes, barefoot dance parties and open air parties, Yoga in the park, .... I can tell you about all the cool spots and insider tips.

    Also you can take part for free in the yoga classes, meditations, etc. (in German though).

    Help

    At the moment I am specifically looking for someone who can help with one of the following things:

    1. EDITING AUDIOS - I am working on meditations and other audios and need help editing the recordings.

    2. SEWING - help sew Eyepillows and cushions for the apartment

    On the side it would be great if you can cook a vegan lunch for you, me and possibly also the intern who is helping me and help in the house with cleaning (not the main task).

    In exchange you get:
    - a room in a beautiful apartment
    - food (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks - 7 days a week)
    - free Yoga classes, and other events during your stay (in German though)
    - advice what to do in Leipzig, possibly we can do some things together too

  • Languages spoken

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    You would be sleeping in the guest room - with a double bed, desk, wardrobe and very nice interior design.

    The flat is super nice - old apartment with wooden floors, high celing etc.
    We have a big kitchen with everything you could need, bathtroom, wifi, washing machine...

    The apartment is located in the west of the city (Altlindenau/Plagwitz), with a big grocery store, a drug store, banks, some restaurants and cafés, in less than 5 minutes walking distance. The Karl-Heine-Straße in Plagwitz is about 3 minutes walking distance - it is a super hipstery street with restaurants, bars, art galleries, cool little shops and two independant cinemas. In Plagwitz there are many abandoned factories and other pretty, old buildings that you can explore, the channel where you can go on kayak trips (I even have one ;)), many thrift shops, arty shops/art projects/galeries, clubs, bars etc..
    The beautiful "Palmengarten" park is in walking distance and there are multiple tram and bus lines around the corner.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Meals are included, all vegan. If you want to eat dairy and eggs, you can buy your own, but I don't like to have meat and fish in the house.

    How to get to Leipzig:
    Leipzig has an airport (Leipzig/Halle) although it is quite small, but if you are lucky you can still find cheap flights from other European cities.
    If you are traveling by plane, you can also fly to Berlin (there are two airports) and then take the bus (just 8€!) or train to Leipzig.
    From other German cities it is usually cheapest to take the bus, but train works too (and I can give you some advise on how to get cheap train tickets!)

    When sending me a message, please tell me a bit about yourself! I am excited to meet you! ;))
