    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a workshop for bycicles where we repair our own bikes and bikes for Friends and neighbours. Appart from the standard repairs as renewing the Brakes and adjusting the gears we can completely disassemble bisicles and construct our own from a combination of old bycicles. And we can learn more about E-Bikes.
    We love doing bycicle Tours in the summer most of the time to one of four lakes nearby, to the wildlife Park or to "Altes Land" where there are huge fields of Apple Trees and you literally get anything made from Apple.
    Other things we can offer is learning to programm or building little software tools yourself. Felix is a Computer Scientist in his Profession.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a bus just 5 minute walk from this place, which goes every 10 minutes to the city center. in just 40 minutes by public transport you are in the center of Hamburg. Where you can do all the sight seeing and enjoy the infamous Reeperbahn, relax on the Deck of a Ferry going from Landungsbrücken or marvel at the beautiful architecture in the Hafen City including Elbphilharmony.
    Going out of the City it is just a few minutes by bycicle and you are in the middle beatuiful nature, lakes and heath. Since we are verry luky with the location of our House it already feels like in the Middle of nowhere when you sit in the Garden and start a pitfire and barbeque. Our Neighbours are mainly protected landscape areas in the middle of the city.
