About our home

Our house is a very cozy home with a small kitchen and a large living/dinning room that looks out large windows onto a small intimate and private garden. It was built in 1930 by the famous architect Bruno Taut as part of a planned community. I love our home, and find it to be a wonderful place to get away for a quiet afternoon, or for having a dinner party with a small group of friends.


More about us

  1. Our names are Erwin and Sibylle, and we are both retired teachers. Erwin taught History and Art in a high school, and Sibylle taught German and English at various school levels. We love to travel to all points around the globe, and have a special place in our heart for the US. Our first visit to New York City was in 1978, and we have loved it ever since. Although this is our first time on this site, we have had wonderful experiences in sharing our homes (we also have a property in Perinaldo, Italy in the the Liguria region) with people in the past. We view it as not only a chance to visit other parts of the world, but as a way to make personal connections with the people we exchange with.

Where is it?


Our neighborhood is a quiet and close knit group of homes filled with many families; some of which have young children while others are retired elderly couples. An interesting note is that the entire community is listed with the European Cultural Heritage Organization, due to the importance of its architect, Bruno Taut. We are very fortunate to be a 5 minute walk to the train station, and yet a short walk in the opposite direction will bring you to a secluded woods and lake that is wonderful for swimming in the summer and skating in the winter. The woods are also filled with trails to hike. A number of supermarkets are walking distance along with a coffee shop that has recently opened. On Thursdays you will find a little open air market at the train station. There is not reserved parking, but you are always able to find a spot on the street.
