    Description

    Hey,
    The project is located in the beautiful Blackforest in the south of Germany. It is close to the city of Freiburg and lakes like Titisee and Schluchsee aswell as the Feldberg area are close by.

    About the project:
    We are a newly founded house project with an old train station building and a large property.
    The house needs some renovation and our ambition is to reuse and recycle as much material as possible. The roof beams for example are taken from a building, which is being torn down.
    There are several tasks to fulfill. The whole roof needs to be renewed in the next months. But there is not just tasks which need special expertise. We are happy about every helping hand.

    About us:
    We are currently 5 people and one dog. Everybody is 23 years old and partly studying at the University and/or working in different jobs.
    We believe in covid vaccination and anarchy.

    About accomodation, food and transport:
    There is space in the house as well as on the property to put up tents.
    Most of the time we cook together. Mostly vegetarian, but also dumpster dived meat from time to time.
    The place is not accessible by public transport, but we have a shared car which drives to the next train station in 10 minutes.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love to share skills and wild discussions about all topics, especially politics. Some of us are very skilled in building/repairing things and like to explain and teach their knowledge to others. We are currently redoing the roof of our old train station building and can teach wood working on the new beams, that need to be set. Also we are creative in finding solutions like repairing a broken car, building a shed or do creative work with wood. We have a lot of tools in our tool shop and also a lot of wood to play with.
    A plan of ours is also to build a mini ramp for skateboarding in a shed. That is also a task, where the exchange of ideas from travellers and hosts would be great.
    What we offer to share with visitors is not only skills of working though. We try to live as sustainable as possible. In order to improve and evolve this, we want to connect to other people to share ideas, dreams and a way of taking on the future.
    If you are interested in historic buildings, our place can be very interesting for you! It was build 1890 and used as a trainstation until 1960. We are thinking about how to have this historic part of the house always on track, maybe start a little museum in one room? Or maybe integrate a museum corner in all shared rooms? As you see, we are still in the beginning and would love to have a historic fan to accompany us!

    We are located in the heart of the black forest. The Ravenna Schlucht is accessible by foot in about 20 minutes. Also various Rocks and waterfalls can be reached in the span of an hour. Like the Posthalden Felsen, the Piket Felsen, the Noppel Felsen and the Alpersbacher Wasserfälle. The Feldberg, the highest peak of the black forest is in the reach of 12 km to go by foot or mountain bike. Also with the car it is only about a 20 minute drive to shorten the way up.
    There are lakes like the Titisee and the Schluchsee and also when looking down through the valley, you can reach the Rhine river, the border of France and various other lakes in about an hour by train and car.
