We are both highschool teachers and can only swap during german school holidays :-) BUT severeal times during the school year.
We live in a new 160m2 eco-friendly 2 floor architect house with underfloor heating supported by solar collectors and a big green garden in walking distance to the biggest lake in Germany (20min by foot, 5min by bike) AND the 3rd biggest in central Europe .
Visit three countries during your stay: Germany, Switzerland and Austria ... they all surround the lake. You can even go on a bicycle tour around the lake - it takes you one day, if you are very athletic ;-) ... if not, you will enjoy our E-bike! Visit the beautiful city Konstanz is only 20min by ferry or drive by car in 1h to Bregenz in Austria with it's amazing theater festival on the water in summer or to the stunning Rhein Falls in Switzerland. Even Bavaria with the Casle Neuschwanstein and Munich is only 2 hours away.
