  • Descrição


    I live in a renovated house in the Allgäu that is over 100 years old. The proximity to the Alps and Lake Constance make our climate pleasant and the area attractive for people who are enthusiastic about sports and hiking. The next village is 2km away. Unfortunately we do not have public transport. There is a holiday apartment in the house that I rent out to guests.
    I live alone in the house, my son and his family live nearby. I have a large vegetable garden that feeds me most of the year. The meadows around the house are grazed by my sheep, except in winter. There are fruit trees and I have an apiary with 11 colonies.
    I am a teacher by profession and taught in a vocational school for young people with little knowledge of the German language. I have now retired and can organize my time freely.
    As a workaway, I would like to give you an insight into my small farm and self-sufficiency. In managing my land and keeping animals, it is important to me to work in harmony with nature, not to exploit or damage it. I do not use any chemical poisons and I orient myself towards biodynamic agriculture. I make sure to save energy and create as little waste as possible. Of course we are all learners and every year is different and there are always new challenges.
    I would like support with physically demanding agricultural activities, gardening and caring for the animals. The activities are very varied and mostly outdoors. The working hours are of different lengths. It depends on the season and also on the weather whether hay can be made, whether you can work in the garden, or whether you have to saw firewood or even shovel snow. There are days when you just can relax and others when you have a lot to do.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    There is the possibility to hike in the foothills of the Alps. In winter there is the opportunity to ski, in summer swimming lakes are close by. I live in a tourist area and there are many different attractions for tourists. The towns in the area are rather small and have beautiful old buildings and a rural flair.
    I can provide you with a bike to explore the area. Hikes are possible from the house. If it fits, we can also go to see something or go on tours together.
    You can get to know my son's family and his children when we go on trips or partying together. It will be a good way to experience our culture and customs.

  • Ajuda


    I would like help with the daily work, which can vary a lot depending on the time of year. Or there is a construction project or some other long task that can be done largely independently according to instructions.
    As a rule, it is work in the open air, e.g. making fences, working the garden, looking after sheep, looking after bees, small repairs, mowing the lawn or pasture, sawing firewood, etc.

    During leisure time, hikes can be undertaken and sporting activities. There are swimming lakes, ski lifts and trails, climbing rocks and a climbing hall. I can provide a bike. There is hardly any public transport in my place. However, I am ready to drive you to some attractions or to accompany you. A train station is 8 km away. The larger towns in the vicinity are: Kempten, Lindau, Immenstadt, Oberstaufen, Isny.
