Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Open to offers for 2022

We live in a quiet 100 m2 flat in the vicinity of the Old Town of Graz with a wonderful view of the city and a nearby park. Our flat is on the 15th floor (2 elevators).
Our apartment has 2 bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, bathroom (shower) and separate toilet. Furthermore there is a winter garden and a balcony overlooking the park. All together 4 people can sleep comfortably in our flat. There is a double bed in the main bedroom. The girls room has a single bed and an additional sliding mattress for another person or for younger children. Since our children are 19 and 16 years old, we have no toys anymore and - although welcomed - the flat may not be suitable for small children. Currently only our daughter lives with us and most of the time only our daughter will be travelling with us.


City Center can be reached in 10 min.by tram (tram-stop is just opposite our house). A pharmacy is nearby, three grocery stores and two bakeries are a 5-10 min.walk away. There are also two bakeries that are open on Sundays - so you can go for a coffee or get some fresh bread or cakes. Every Saturday a farmers market takes place right in front of our house.Bigger shopping centers are either in the city or on the edge of town and easily reached by public transport.
Next to our house there is a playground and a small pump track for children and a small forest for taking a walk.

Graz is the second-biggest city in Austria - it has a famous old town and offers a lot of cultural highlights and mediterrean life style. Graz,being the capital of Styria, is an ideal place to take excursions to interesting places - a lot of hills, mountains and a range of thermal spas are less than an hours drive away. Day trips to Vienna (200 km)and Salzburg (280 km) are possible. Even trips to Italy and Croatia are within 4-5 hours reach.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Our family loves nature and since we live in a city throughout the year, we prefer more quiet destinations in our holidays. However we are always open to new suggestions - we love the sea, the countryside, but sometimes also big cities. Just surprise us - we will think about all ideas carefully and we will answer to all offers !

We will treat your home with care and respect and trust that you will do likewise!

For our guests we will provide a map with information at home and if you have any special interests please let us know!
