About our home

**Looking for a 12 months long-term exchange between 2023 and 2025**

our house was built in 2013 and is a wooden, red-painted "Swedish"-style house. we have put a focus on using materials that are ecologically sustainable, creating a living-environment that is friendly and healthy. For more information, please visit the website of our construction company "Baufritz":

We have a total of 8 rooms (one bureau, one spacious living room including kitchen and dining area, one side room for watching TV and relaxing, one dressing room, one master bedroom, one further sleeping room (contains a baby bed in addition), one children's room (with a bunk bed) and one laundry room. In addition, we have 2 bathrooms (one family, one guest, both with a shower).

The garden has a new trampoline and a swing for 2. There is a lot of space for playing around and relaxing. We have two terraces, one wooden terrace with about 20-25m², one with stones (about 35 m²) and both may be used for barbecue and other activities. We have a big carport for two cars.

We have 2-3 bikes, a piano and a Western guitar for use ;-)

We do not have any pets and would prefer an exchange without "complicated" pets.

More about us

  1. We are a non-smoking family of five (Christian (45), working in the renewables business and being a mediator, Corinna (40), business coach and our two girls (8 and 6 years) and one boy (2 years); we like to be outdoors a lot, love to travel and to meet new people.
    We care for the environment, our work-life-balance and have a strong affection towards sports (mountain biking, running, yoga and swimming).
    So far, we have done six home exchanges with families from the Netherlands (Arnhem, Enkhuizen and Alkmaar), Denmark and Switzerland (Yverdon and Lucerne) and we just loved it. We are very keen on trying our next exchange! In 2016, we spent some fabulous time in New Zealand and are keen on getting to know a country we have not visited before.

    We can ensure that we will take utmost care of your home just as we do with our own.

  2. We believe that it is important that we care for each other and our environment, climate change shows the need and urgency for action.

our neighbourhood is rural (about 1.000 inhabitants), with horses and a local golf course in town. the landscape is ideal for biking and hiking, lots of opportunities (cultural, sports, sight seeing, nature, night life) in Hamburg.
there is a small farm shop ("Hofladen") within walking distance (3 min) from our house where you can buy fruits, eggs and vegetables twice a week (Tuesdays and Fridays).
