About our home

Our home is a two storey house with about 300 sqm with a garden. The property is about 1000 sqm. The place is ideal for children with close to zero traffic, a great garden to play football, enjoy the trampoline, the swing, the sandpit, etc.. Nearly the whole first floor of the house (more than 130 sqm) is a play area, with mattresses, pillows, blankets and all the toys. Children will love our vast quantities of Lego, Playmobil, books, games, cars, toys, etc. and the big aquarium. The first floor also includes a fitness corner and a bathroom. On the ground floor we have a large kitchen, the living room facing the nature reserve with a piano and a fireplace, a study, three bedrooms, a bathroom and a WC.


More about us

  1. We are a family of five. Björn (47) is a computer scientist and Claudia (43) a theologian and political scientist working in development cooperation. Our boys are 9 and 7 and our daughter is 8. We love to be in the country side, exploring nature and hiking. We would also like to swap houses and at the same time meet new people. We have two very cute mice (Paulchen and Willi)and you would be able to look after them during the exchange - however they can also stay with our neighbours if that is preferable to you.

Where is it?


We live at the edge of a village, boarding a nature reserve with the forest beginning only 15 m from the house. The nature reserve offers extensive possibilities for running, walking, cycling and just relaxing. The little pond just 50 m away from the house is a highlight for children. Our neighourhood is very quiet and friendly. Public transport to Hannover is 2 km away and takes 20 mins to get into Hannover Central Station. Hannover is a mid-size city and capital of Lower-Saxony with about 600.000 inhabitants and plenty of shopping possibilities, restaurants, museums and other attractions. The location offers many possibilities for day trips to Hamburg and Berlin, to picturesque towns of Celle, Lüneburg and Goslar, to the Harz mountains and the heather plains of Lüneburg. We live about 15 min drive from the airport Hannover. Since the house is situated in a rural area a car is recommended. The nearest food store is 1km away, more shopping opportunities for food and other necessities are 2-3 km away. In the neighbouring village there is a public swimming pool.
