  • Description


    Hello Workawayers!

    When you look at a map of Germany, our former water mill is in the South-East, where Germany meets Austria and the Czech Republic. A long distance hiking trail (Goldsteig) goes through our property and if you're into hiking, it can take you up the mountain to the place where the three countries meet or as far as to Marktredwitz.

    Our goal is to be as self reliant as possible. We make electricity, grow some of our own food. Some years more, some years less.

    We have several businesses - an ayurvedic clinic - a holistic health clinic - a business that sells pellet heating systems and our online businesses.

    So here is what we need:

    In weeks 30-37 we want to refurbish the clinic i.e. clean it thoroughly and put down a new wooden floor.

    We're trying to get the upper floor of the stone house habitable. Here there are floors to put in, pipes and electrical installations to be done.

    Also the outside of the building needs to be grouted.

    The grounds need cleaning all the time i. e. cutting the grass, pruning the trees, making veggie pads and flower beds. The mobile fencing needs to be collected.

    If you're good at computers and firm in German (yes, otherwise it's no use) you could look at our online shops and update / improve / SEO them etc.

    Washing, cooking meals, cleaning are all part of daily life and do not count as "work" anymore than brushing your teeth does. We just need to do it. Everyone needs to pitch in. (I'm mentioning it as we've had problems in the past.)

    If you can drive a small tractor it's a definite advantage.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You'll get to experience country living in Germany. Achim is extremely skilled in any type of building and maintenance and you're sure to learn new skills. He's also a licensed plumber and mechanic. If you're interested in Greece, we can help you make connections there. If we get time (you can help us make some) we can go for a boat ride on the Danube. The area is beautiful and perfect for hiking. We're happy to lend you some bikes, too. Should the weather get hotter again, there are lakes in the area to swim in. If you're a doctor, nurse or similar, you can experience different types of therapies that you might not have come across before.

  • Aide


    At present we really need help with the gardening and pruning of the trees but we also have other jobs like setting up our security cams and network, help building my new clinic, general work around the place, fixing motor bikes or cars, making fire wood and other stuff. As we both have jobs we can't always be there to watch every moment. Cooking and house work are not counted as "work" as that's just a necessity for you and us.
    A driver's license would be helpful as we are 4 km from the nearest town.
    A good level head is very helpful.
    An ability to cope with strange situations and ask for help if you need it (there are few neighbours) is essential.
    Don't scare easily (it's an old house so there are strange noises).
    As we have a cat, it's good if you're not allergic to them.

  • Hébergement


    You'll have a small neat and clean caravan to stay in or you can stay in the room that we are working on turning into an ayurveda clinic. We're working on the bathroom at the moment, it's working but not yet finished. When you're here, we can finish it together.

    Autres infos...

    After work you can go for walks in the forest or wet your feet in the creek, have a swim in the nearby lake, relax in the large garden, visit the museum of weaving, sit quietly in the chapel next door or go cycling. If you have a car there are so many wonderful places to go see from here, like world heritage town Czesky Krumlov. You'll never be bored. We're not far from Passau, Linz, the Danube, either. There are many hiking and cycling trails around here. Three are high gardens and a tree top path for day trips. Even without a car, you can visit 3 counties in 1 day - on foot or by bike! There is a Hindu temple 8 km away as well.
