Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Hello, we would like to stay in the USA or Canada for 3 to 6 months (preferably in 2022). We are a family with 4 children between 7 and 15 years old. If you are interested, just contact us for more information or photos.

Our family house, built in 1939, is located in the 'garden district' Brasselsberg, a calm and noble suburb of Kassel. Kassel is the capital of North Hesse, the region where the grimms' fairy tales come from. Situated in the middle of Germany and Europe the area is rich in history and culture, but also has a very beautiful natural landscape. The central location of the city is of course also perfect for traveling in all directions.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site "Bergpark" is within walking distance from our house. During summer 2022 there will be the famous `Documenta-Exhibition` of modern arts in Kassel, attracting people from all over the world.
In our house there are three floors, 10 rooms (6 bedrooms), a garden and two garages.
