  • Description


    We are an upcycling community consisting of Kim, Torsten, Svenja, Martin and Linda , Pieter 7 years and Lotta 3 years. We live on the border to the Ruhr area in Duisburg. The Rhine, surrounded by greenery, is 1 km away and the small town center is only 300 m away on foot. We enjoy living as a community and look for others to bring their ideas and influence. Be part of our family.

    Cultural exchange is one of our reasons for joining Workaway. We all like to travel, meet new people and learn about new cultures. As a workawayer, you are not only a helping hand, but also the gateway to another country. we look forward to hanging out with you, going to your local pub, exploring Duisburg and the neighboring cities together, etc.

    We bought the house 8 years ago with a garden. Our main activities are renovation, creative decoration and interior design and gardening. It is important to us to integrate our helpers, like you, into our community. In the 300 m2 house you have your own room and access to our cozy kitchen, a living room and a shared bathroom. You would be sharing your room with another workawayer. We want you to be part of our community, which is shared alongside working on the projects. In the evening we cook and eat together. Here you can get to know another great project where we save food.

    The Ruhr region is an interesting mix of beautiful wild spaces of forests, rivers and lakes with also metropolitan city culture and industry in Duisburg, and a melting pot of cultures with large Turkish, Italian, Russian and Spanish communities. Its multicultural 5 million inhabitants makes for a very colourful and diverse experience with many unique cultural activities on offer.

    In the region you can discover exotic restaurants, cultural spaces, markets such as the middle age market and many festivals such as Carnival, Park to Shine, CSD and Japanese day. Of course in corona times some things are different...
