The Experience

We need help for the work in the garden or orchard or around the house (depending on the time of the year). Also a helping hand in the house is needed (babysitting or cleaning). Sometimes some woodwork in the forest has to be done or other renewing activities (e.g. painting) at our house.

I had such an amazing time with them! The tasks and the work schedule were really flexible. In some days, I was helping out inside, cooking or playing with the little kid. In other days, I was gardening or helping with small construction work; nothing really hard or demanding. The entire family is so kind and welcoming. I was invited to be part of the home celebrations and had the opportunity to know more about their culture and lifestyle. The facilities are above standard, and the food was amazing (especially Oma's 🤤). Thank you so much for having me!

The experience was truly incredible. I have nothing but words of gratitude for everything. They are a super open family, they integrate you into their activities and lifestyle as if you were one of them. I personally experienced and felt the tasks to be carried out as part of my daily life and they are super flexible about it, it is really relaxing to be in contact with nature in such a quiet place. The kids are great, I had a lot of fun with them, they share their hobbies with you and that's great. I particularly felt at home, it's like having a German family, I learned a lot about the cultur
