  • Description


    Ingrid works as a primary school teacher, Johannes is an independent instrument maker and occasionally on tour as a musician. He is usually flexible during the week. Especially in times when helpers are needed, one of us will work as far as possible with them.
    In 2020 we want to renovate the barnhouse beside our house. This is to be converted into a workshop for making musical instruments (currently I have my workshop 12 km from the house).
    In addition to German, we speak English and some French (Ingrid) and rudimentary Swedish (Johannes, learn more about it ...)
    We look forward to meeting people from other countries and cultures.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We live in the area called Westerwald, approx. 60 km east of Bonn. The Rhine Valley with the cities of Cologne and Bonn with their entire cultural life are about 1 hour (good train connection) from here. Here you can enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Westerwald and the Sieg-valley, go on excursions, visit old mines.
    We are a family in which music determines a large part of life, especially folk music from all over Europe, historical instruments. We also have a piano for open use.

  • Hébergement


    On the top floor of our house are the former rooms of our two adult sons (24 and 25) and a private new bathroom. Our caravan can also be used in summer.
    In the house there is a common kitchen, common living-dining area, a large garden, WiFi (no TV). Small, quiet village near the forest, the nearest shops are about 3 km away. Good rail connection (1 km to the train station)
    Ingrid is a vegetarian, Johannes occasionally also cooks meat for himself. Depending on our working hours, we try to eat together as often as possible.
