Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our Appartment has about 90 qm, 4 rooms and a loggia, kitchen and bathroom. One bedroom is upstairs and has it's own toilett and sink, for example for teenagers. Downstairs there is my bedroom with one single-bed, my office with a sofa which can be changed to a comfy french-bed for couples, the kids room with a big and stabel bunk-bed, the kitchen with 5 chairs at the table, and the logia, which is used as Merlins office, but also for relaxing, with a beautiful look out to the gardens. There isn't a special living room, as we sit in the kitchen for chatting or playing board games.
You can enjoy our beautiful garden as well, with possibility for barbecue and toys for kids. We have a big out-door-trampolin, also a slide for little kids. There is a table soccer and a small table-tennis in the cellar as well.There's also a little community-garden to meet other kids, and a lot of playgrounds within walking distance, and wild-life park with a playground in the forrest nearby, just 10min by bikes or an 25 min walk. Loads of openair public pools and lakes in Karlsruhe and around, one is a 10min walk from our home.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Karlsruhe is a nice but also not too busy city with museums of history, painting, multi-media-art and more, theatres, concert-hall, opera, cinemas, fine restaurants, dancing clubs, jazz club and more. We especially have a lot of very nice public-pools (openair and indoors) and lakes for swimming and kajak around, also many big playgrounds, to enjoy a hot summer ! One of our favorite public pool is just a 10 min walk from our home. There's our Castle with a huge park and playground an a little steam-train as well. The Black Forrest is an oase of peace and invites to short trips same as for long walks. Also the Palentina Forrest with it green hills and forrests and old castles and ruins, about 1 h drive from Karlsruhe for day trips or stays. There's a ferry same as a bridge over the rhine river for to visit France, enjoy a "Flammkuchen" or a cup of coffey in the pittoresce villages.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We had great swaps with families with kids of all age allready, from baby up to 19 years old, and all went fine. We came back home and found our home just as clean and tidy as we left it, sometimes with interesting food in the fridge we never discovered before in our shops, which was quite fun. We grow some tomateos and other vegetables, you are wellcome to help yourself. We will handle your home with care and respect.
