  • Description


    Come to our old farmhouse in the North-East of Germany! We live in Nostorf ca. 50km in the east of hamburg with two sons (8 and 5), in periods with another woman and here little daughter (4). In one of the buildings we have a carpenters workshop, where we build windows and doors and other wooden projects. We have two cats outdoor and like to have more animals but this is work. Work is a lot in and around our old house. There are many plans and dreams of dogs, chicken and dunkeys, a sauna, more living space... There are a lot of things to repair, ground for building and growing, a big areal to make fire in the evening, art projects, chilling, playing... All these ideas need a lot of hands to help, many heads to look for new ideas and good vibes for having a good and colourful time together!

    There lot of different things to learn and we would like to help you with your german language. We like to meet and talk with other people, about our cultures and countries. There is a cinema in the next little city Boizenburg with very good films and cultural program in the summer also on a boat. With the train it's only 40 min to hamburg, the very nice big city at the river elbe, with many cultural events, little bars, shops and the big harbour. In our place it is very calm an there are nice places to chill and enjoy nature, go swiming in a very nice little lake near to our house.
