About our home

That house was build at about 1920, and has its own special charm. It is comfortable, clean, and spacious. It has a large kitchen with adjoining dining and living room. To the south side is a large fenced garden with trees and grass. All along the house are places to relax. There is a huge custom made picnic-table at the side of the house. A big Rosebrush and lilactree filters the sunlite with hundreds of blossoms from may to august. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, a bathroom, our office-room, a guest toilette on both floors.
We would arrange, that you can use our car for your time here. It is a VW-Golf.
We have free Telephone and Highspeed Internet and Kabel-TV at your possession.
Within 5 minute walking distance, your are in the middle of Haan-City with cosy Pubs, a nice saturday-market and shops for everything (see www.haan.de/). You can start right from door for a nice walk by Forest or Parks. We have living a friendly neigbourhood aroound us.

More about us

  1. We are Heike (36) and Robert (41), a married couple with our daughters Marla and Joy by the age of 5 and 8. Heike is running her own bookkeeping business and Robert is an employee by the germanys biggest airline Lufthansa. Beside that Robert is manufacturing rustic furniture (please see www.robwood.de)

    We have visited Canada/ USA many, many times but we still hungry to discover the land. We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to try what sounds a great way to see another country as a resident – specially because of our plans to emigrate to Canada in 2008. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in Haan/ Germany.
    When ever we have the time, we love to enjoy the nature, and it is our pleasure do so by hiking, canoeing or horse riding. Ok, not to forget our dog Gilbert, a Golden Retriever. We would love to have him with us, but we could also arrange his stay with close friends here in germany.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Ideally located as a touring base, our hometown Haan (a population of about 20.000) offers easy access by car or train to the cities of Düsselforf (20min), Cologne (40min) or lets say Amsterdam in the Netherlands (3hours). Specially the land borders to France, Belgium and Dutch are very close. The Dutch border is a 20 minutes drive.
But why wander in the distance? The are beautiful and exciting Knights Castles (www.schlossburg.de/hauptseite/) (www.tetti.de/BENRATHERSCHLOSS/index.html) and Museums like (www.neanderthal.de/) for example nearby.
Düsseldorf is well knowns for its Beer-Brewerys mostly located in the Altstadt, or its Königsallee and like Cologne it lies directly by the river Rhein. Cologne is famous for its Dome, see (www.koelner-dom.de/)
There are open-air museums that tells about the time centuries ago. (www.lwl.org/freilichtmuseum-detmold/01_startseite_uk.php). You also can do skiing in the winter month just a one hour drive away from here (www.winterberg.de/gb/index.html). We love these mountains also for hiking…

NOT TO FORGET: If you like soccer, the FiFa World Cup Soccer Germany 2006 starts 09.Juni and ends with the final game 09.July 2006!!!!!
Games are in Gelsenkirchen, Dortmund or Cologne with driving times under 60minutes or even Berlin or Munich is just a one hour flight. Prices are about 19,-€ with German Wings (one way) up to 99,-€ with Lufthansa. You may see under www.opodo.de if you are interested for flights within europe for example
