    Hello, we are Till and Katharina. We are a lively family of five people living in beautiful Vienna. Our home is still in Vienna but since it's not downtown our area has kind of the feeling of the countryside. Our kids are born 2010, 2012 and 2016 :). There are also Fio and Finn-our cats- and Coco our dog living with us. Our children used to live kindergarden- and school free, but they are not allowed to anymore.

    We are self employed and one of us is always working while the other one is with the children. At least it was like that the last 12 years. Right now we are trying to get a new routine because the kids are supposed to go to school every day.

    Since we are five people, there a only few quite times, it's always a bit chaotic (update: it's always very chaotic, haha) , there is always something to do, the kids are arguing--so "normal" family life we would say ;-) What's more the neighbor kids are always hanging out here, which means it's really always kind of noisy!

    Most of the times we are cooking vegetarian (though recently the kids want (need?) a lot of meat so we have it more often now) and are trying to live a sustainable lifestyle, though we find it hard sometimes to really do it. We are open minded and looking forward to meet people from all over the world.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    I hope with us you can get an idea of living with children in an unusual way. Until now they've never been to kindergarten or school. We almost never used diapers, for a long time we slept in a socalled family bed (5 people in one bed) and still in a family bedroom and many uncommon things more ;-). Whats more we know a lot about Vienna - so we hope to help you to find your way here in lovely Vienna (though we will hardly have time to show you around). In any way we are looking forward to this cultural exchange!

    And Katharina is going to be a "The Work- Coach" - so if you are interested to get a free coaching from Katharina, please just ask :-D she would be so so happy to guide you through your "work".

    We are looking for somebody who wants to spend some time with us and our kids and mainly helps us with the housework: Cooking, shopping, hovering, doing the laundry, cleaning the kitchen or the windows, helping tidying up (I already mentioned it, our house is very chaotic!) things like that- we have 126m² and a lot of work to do, you will not get bored, hehe. It would be cool if you would help us with cooking and the dishes also on your off-days, but of course only if you're here :-).

    Daily tasks on your help days: Tidying up the kitchen, emptying and wahsing the trash bins, vacuuming the kitchen, putting the wet laundry on the dryer and putting the dry laundry in the cupboards, making the beds, watering the garden (in summer), tidying up with the kids if you played with them.

    Also we need someone who can care for the children when we both are working. But this will not happen too often. Most of the times it's the housework you can help us with.

    For us it's very important to have a detailed schedule with our workawayers so that it's clear for everybody when we set the working times. The reason is: if we don't have a schedule we would ask you all day long if you could help us with this or that- lol. No seriously, there is ALWAYS work that's why it's good to work five hours in the morning for example and than everyone knows it's your freetime now and if the kids want to play with you, you don't have to feel like you have to play with them. You can, if you want, but if you don't want to, everyone will accept it because it's your freetime.

    But still, we are a very flexible family and it's so important for us that you feel comfortable here. If you prefer to work 10 hours one day and have another day off, this is also possible. We will fix everything with you once you are here :-D.

    Of course we love to teach you some German by using it as often as you wish! But we could also switch to English if you feel more comfortable with that. We are always interested in improving our English but the best part of talking English with our workawayers is that our kids can learn the language! Katharina is learning Spanish now and is looking forward to meet Spanish speaking people :)

    You can sleep in our home office (if we are working we start working in this room at 9am), which we changed into a half office-half guestroom, in our 126m² apartment with garden and balkony. It is located in a silent area in the outskirts of Vienna (still in Vienna!) with a lot of nature around. At the same time you are pretty fast in downtown, using public tranpsortation (aprox. 40 minutes).

    ***Update: We used to have a field next to our house- there is a construction now and they usually start working at 6.30 am in front of your window. For us it's okay but we feel like we have to tell you***

    ***Corona-Update: We have more online-work as usual right now. That's why we need the office also in the evening sometimes and more often. Please consider this. ***

    You can use one of our bikes. Of course we share everything in our apartment with you. You can also use our W-LAN. We would love to share our meals with you. Please notice that we are eating vegetarian most of the time (not always though).
