    Description

    We are Antje and Matthias, a married couple, who owns a part of a big old farmhouse from 1850, situated on the outskirts of the village of Werther near Bielefeld.
    There are two other families living in the building in a close neighbourhood.
    Matthias is a joiner and I work as a music teacher nearby. Beside teaching violin I love playing irish trad. music.
    We have a cat who is mostly outside of the house . In the backyard we have an old construction trailer that we intend to finnish rebuilding it this summer.
    We also want to create a new herb garden arround the construction trailer.
    Our children are adult an live in Augsburg and Berlin,

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our english is not the best so we will talk mostly in german -a brilliant place to practise the language. You can learn gardening and handling with wood.
    Cultural there are many interesting cities arround our village : Bielefeld, Paderborn, Osnabrück or Hannover, where you can travel by train or by bus. We will give you enough leisure time to explore the surrounding area.
