Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our house has been build in 1740 in the "new part" of the town. It is a two-house complex which has been combined as one family house with small garden & terrace in UNESCO city. We restored the house in the early nineties. The ground floor area is mainly taken by our daughters toy-shop and café, however there is an additional guest room, small kitchen and toilet in the groundfloor. We have bathrooms on groundfloor and upper floor lavel, and an additional toilet in the ground-floor shop area. Being an old house, it stays quite cool in summer times. The garden offers shade and quite a cool climate, we would eat outside in summerevening (garden or terrace). In winter we usually heat and cook with the two ovens on the upper floor level, however a gas-stove and central heating is also available. Each level, ground floor, first floor and roof have ovens to heat with wood, if desired. The house as many rooms to sit, read, listen to music or get lost in conversations.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live in the "new part" of town constructed in 1700-1800, on a quiet, green churchyard with close to no traffic (residents only). Being nevertheless in the centre of town, nothing is far and we highly recommend walking within the city (10 minutes to main square, market, and pedestrian area with shops, 2 minutes to swimming hall, 1 minute organic food store, 15 minutes to the castle and main parks).

Since this is the former Eastern part of germany, some UNIQUE SHOPS have survived the 20 years of modernization and are like a time bubble. We highly appreciate our retail shops kept by families in several generations.

However being the eastern zone of germany you will realize that COST FOR FOOD, CULTURE, MUSEUM ENTRIES, ACTIVITIVIES ETC ARE SUPRISINGLY MODEST.
