Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our bright and modern apartment (about 190 sqm/2045 sqft in size) is located in the heart of Durach/Kempten in the beautiful area of Allgäu with close proximity to the Bavarian alps.

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Kempten, the closest city (population of about 80.000) can easily be reached by public transportation or by car (5 minutes). Kempten is considered the heart of the Allgäu with a popular farmer’s market every Wednesday and Saturday, a lot of restaurants, a beautiful pedestrian only zone, interesting museums and churches, big indoor swim and sauna complex, theatre, cinema and large indoor shopping mall.

The surrounding areas are a paradise for all kinds of sports and outdoor-activities. You can go running, biking, swimming, hiking, climbing, skiing, cross-country-skiing, back-country-skiing ( also guided! ), sailing, sky-diving, golfing, canoeing, whitewater-rafting, boating or you can charter a helicopter/small plane for sightseeing tours. A perfect place for an unforgettable year-round vacation in the mountains.

The closest mountains ( for winter sports or hiking ) are only 15 min by car. And many more mountains for outdoor-activities are reachable within 45 min.

There are numerous lakes in the surrounding area – the closest one even in walking distance.

If we have enough snow in town, there are two cross-country-courses only 5 walking minutes away.

The city of Füssen with the famous Castle „Neuschwanstein“ is about 35 min away by car.
