    Good Host
  • Description


    We are a little Family living on our farm in the South of Nürnberg. This is: Gerhard and Judith with little Nahuel an Grandma Erika. We have arable land and forest. We work sustainably in the forest and try to create an intact ecosystem with dead wood, natural regeneration and sustainable trees.
    In addition, in 2022 we will create a 2.5 hectare permaculture garden with many fruit trees and berry bushes, biotopes and vegetable patches for self-sufficiency.
    Many topics are important to us, which concern nature, climate change, health and spirituality and we try to live accordingly. But we are completely normal people, we drive cars, we go to work and don't see ourselves as "the good ones", so please don't expect a perfect eco-bubble here.
    We look forward to help in the forest and with the permaculture garden. We want people to come to us who like to be in nature and enjoy peace and solitude.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn about sustainable forest management. We are inspired by the national park bavarian forest. Also about permaculture and self-sufficiency with vegetables (we are far from being self-sufficient, but we are trying). Life in our Franconian village is very beautiful, all families have lived here for several centuries and it is a beautiful, old community. Some city dwellers think there is no such thing anymore;)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    If you come with your own car, you can easily visit the beautiful little town of Schwabach (10min) and Nuremberg (25min). It is very difficult to get out of our village without a car. There is a bus once or twice a day.
    But you can walk straight into nature and go hiking on Heidenberg, for example.
