“We cannot recommend Bernd & Kristin\'s home highly enough. The house is modern, clean, super comfy and they are experienced house-swappers and well-prepared giving us lots of useful local information. The village of Sachsenkam is delightful and we loved cycling to the warm lake in August (they had various bikes for us all to use). Bad Tolz nearby is utterly charming and it\'s only 30 minutes by train to Munich from nearby Holzkirchen. Bernd and Kristin left our house exactly as they found it and were a real pleasure to communicate with and to meet in person - we are extremely grateful to them for the wonderful opportunity - thank you! Danke!”

“Premier échange, première satisfaction, maison très agréable, jolie, spacieuse et magnifique région avec de nombreuses choses à faire et à découvrir, sans oublier l'accueil chaleureux. Méme le soleil était au rendez-vous. Salutations.”
“we spend almost a week at Kristin's and Bernd's house in Sachsenkam and it was just... way beyond our best expectations. The house is great, spacious, pleasant, welcoming and really easy to manage, as well as quiet, secluded and very easily accessible. But the whole experience of exchanging with Kristin and Bernd was what made it all still better: the idea was to introduce our kids (and ourselves!) to skiing and there was literally no effort they've spared not only to make this happen, but to make it happen big time! I can't even start describing how well it all went, and how extremely generous they were, not only leaving us all of their very own equipemnt (and where not available, trying to get more from neighbors, too!) but also calling around, finding out how, where, when, what. All in all we've had a wonderful holiday, a wonderful first-time experience of skiing and... a wonderful exchange! We sure hope to be able to make it again -- so if you can, you must! And i haven't even started to say anything about the village, the area, the views, the expanses. Many, many thanks again, Kristin, Bernd and boys. Naomi, David and... boys!”
“If you get a chance to exchange with this family/house; take it! There's so much to love; the house itself is nice and spacious, the view is wonderful, the communications were really pleasant. The house is really close to a beautiful (swim) lake and wonderful beergarten in a cloister and when you're willing to drive a bit, you have so much to discover. Towns like Munchen, Innsbruck and Salzburg and the most wonderful mountain areas in Germany and/or Austria. We stayed for 2 weeks and loved it. And back home we could start in a clean house. One of our favourite exchanges!”
“Aanbeveling over de accommodatie van Bernd Steinhaus uit Bad Tolz, Duitsland (ID=47438) Hello Bernd and Kristin, thank u for swapping houses with "Antwerpen"(67092). We had a really really good time in your spacious house and enjoyed everyday the wonderfull view of the Bavarian countryside. My youngest daughter is repeatingly busy with the fact that she is going to live in Bad Tolz one day .... the walks, the sky, the snow, the space and views..... we will see were we have to go if we want to see our grandchildren when she is grown up . The comfort of your house and jour hospitality have made us feel very happy. The fact that we meet in person and took our time by spending one night together in your house and having a family diner was really nice. So here a very big thank you from me and my family. Georg Zou je aub deze aanbeveling public kunnen maken Dank je wel Georg Johannink”
“Nous recommandons particulièrement un échange avec cette sympathique famille. Nous avons beaucoup aimé séjourner dans leur confortable, moderne et belle maison située dans un ravissant village typique de Bavière. Calme, cadre reposant face à la montagne, prairies verdoyantes... tout était pour là pour des vacances agréables. Nous avons entretenu avec Kristin et Bernd des contacts amicaux et chaleureux avant et après notre échange, ce que nous avons beaucoup apprécié.”
Where is it?
Sachsenkam is a small, quiet village in the most attractive part of Bavaria near Bad Tölz upon Isar with its touristic, picturesque market street. The beautiful landscape invites to make long walks or bicycle tours over the hills, along rivers or lakesides. You can make tours in the Alps as well, Lenggries a rather famous winter sport resort is 30 min from us. Possible are lots of different trips by foot or mountain-bike not far away. Water sport is possible as well, for there are lots of lakes , the nearest lake is the Kirchsee only 2 km away, and the Tegernsee (30 min), the Starnberger See, Kochelsee, Walchensee (less than 1 h) and the famous Chiemsee (1h). There you can visit two beautiful small islands, one with a cloister and the other with a castle. The world famous castles Neuschwanstein, Hohenschwangau and Linderhof are 1,5 h from us. It`s easy to reach Munich by car and train (1h). Nice Austrian cities like Salzburg or Innsbruck (both 1,5 h) are not far as well. You see, it`s worth coming to Sachsenkam!
