What you will love about this home

Our house is a very family friendly end-terrace house with tall windows, bright walls, wooden floors and a nice wooden staircase. For the adults there is a really nice water bed. :-) We have lots of toys and games for children: Lego, Duplo, girl's stuff and so on... Our garden is small, but really fine: with climbing tree, tower, swings, trampoline, tepee, hammock... and of course also with a big terrace and a barbecue for the adults. We have a sunny terrace and shady one under the tree where it is lovely to be if it becomes hot. The whole summer one can pick tomatoes and cucumbers from the greenhouse and berries for nibbling from morning till night (raspberries, gooseberries, strawberries, Tay-berries and japanese wineberries). Additionally: We own a canoe wich you can use if you like and have a car with roof rails (necessary for transport). It fits perfectly for 2 adults and 1-2 kids.

What you will love about this neighborhood

Our house lies in a small, calm village 17 km southwest from Osnabrück – with a small farm and baker still in the middle of the village and a pretty ancient church (basement before 1200 established). Everything is near together and to reach easily on foot or by bike. In spite of all village charme the time has not stopped and we also have a supermarket at the place. :-) The village lies near an extension of the Teutoburger Wald (7 min on foot in the wood, nature reserve) and one can easily do Kneipp cure and hiking. There are numerous nice ways (the Hermann's way, Way of St. James and peace rider's way e. g. are directly around the corner) for walking and biking. Yes biking! Here one can be on the move with the mountain bike as well as with the Holland bike or racing bike on long tours. Very near to our village are, for example, an indoor wave pool, a outdoor swimming pool near the forest, several sole baths / sauna, an (Indoor-) child's play paradise, a summer sled run, a kart course, a climbing wood (ropes course), a steam train course, zoos in Rheine, Osnabrück and Münster. In the summer we and the kids enjoy our favorite lake for bathing, the giant playground in Ibbenbüren or the childfriendly museums nearby. The climatic spa Tecklenburg with many half-timbered houses and narrow cobblestones streets is known about the borders and its open-air theatre aswell. In our direct and closer surroundings there are numerous round ways and routes, thus, e. g. , Kleipp way, Hermann's way, Way of St. James Osnabrück-Wuppertal, peace rider's way, 100-castles route, Ems-Heide-Weide-Tour, legend route. Within 5 minutes one reaches the next provincial town with all shops which one needs. The next bigger towns are Osnabrück (20 min) and Münster (35 min). To the Netherlands it is not far also, to Amsterdam about two hours.


We ask our exchange partners to feed the fish in our two fish tanks during our absence. The tanks do not need to be cleaned along the way. In addition, the care of the greenhouse plants in summer (daily watering and air) and also watering the garden plants during dry periods. Therefore one can have a rich and delicious harvest from the greenhouse and the garden ... ;-) Unfortunatelly our son is lightly allergic to cats. Therefor we appreciate exchange partners with "outside cats" or without cats. It works, if the cat lives outside and inside aswell.
