  • Accommodation


    I have a small guestroom in my house, so it is very important that the volunteers are petfriendly people and not afraid of dogs! The volunteers share kitchen, livingroom etcetera with me. And the fridge is always full...

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Guests are less guests than members of my household for a short time. So it is very important for me that they are trustworthy.
    There is less public transport, but I can bring you to a train station, Marburg... wherever. If you have a driving license you can use my car if it's not needed.

    Marburg (30 km from our home) is always worth a visit:

    From the Elizabeth Church and the Lahn valley through the historical old town to the Castle of the Landgrave on the hill visitors to this town will see a living past and modern present.
