  • Description


    We are a group of people living in a self-organized project. We are on our way to becoming a community. Our place is on the countryside in Southern Germany, close to the Swiss border.

    We are 12 adults of different age and 4 Children( 3,5,6,16) (we also have 7 tiny sheeps, 3 cats and one dog).
    The project owns 9,5 hectare of land. Parts of our land are natural habitats; forests, meadows and fields.

    We cook vegan/vegetarian. All decisions belonging to the project are made with consent, therefore we meet once a week for sharing information, and once a month for plenum to increase our cooperative feeling. We meet on Friday to do different enjoyable activities together.

    Our guests shall always be a part of us and our project. We want our guest to live and work together with us for as long as they stay here. We want them to feel at home. We want to learn from our guests and they from us.

    WE host people for at least 2 weeks on, not less. Sorry.

  • Hébergement


    Depending on how many people are at the Mühle when you are staying here, you either sleep in a simply furnished guest room (with mattress), a small site caravan or in one of the “free” rooms (normally for rent).
    For sure you will have a place where you can close the door and be on your own. We will find the best option for you to stay, depending on your needs.

    In the house we have a common kitchen and common living / eating room. Here you are welcome to be together with others and make yourself comfortable. The terrace has a rustic and pleasant view.

  • Autres infos...

    Autres infos...

    We are situated 1,5 km south of a small town called Tengen, in a beautiful valley with a small stream called Körbelbach. It is possible to arrive to Tengen by public transport from either Engen or Singen (Hohentwiel), but the connection is not great. We can usually pick you from the trainstation in Engen or Singen.

    Tengen is a small quiet town in the Hegau mountains. There you can find a bank, a pharmacy, some restaurants, and a supermarket.

    In the Mühle we have internet connection and fixed line, but no mobile phone connection. Therefore you have to walk 5 Minutes up the hill to use your data / handy.

    Our food is delivered by a local biological farm. We are using more local and ecological products, common food is vegan, at least vegetarian and we reducing our use of chemical products. Meat is not cooked in common kitchens.
