House in Tübingen, Germany

Our house, built in the 1920`s, is very comfortable and has got a secluded beautiful and big garden. For enjoying the sun in the garden there are many cosy places to sit or relaxing in a hammock or for example having barbecue.

We live on three stores. There is a living-room, a dining room, a working room with a computer and a piano and a separate kitchen on the first store. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a big bathroom and a separate toilet. The parent`s room with a small toilet is in the attic.
We have  computers with free Internet access available for your use..

We are the owner of the house, on the ground floor there are living two young ladies studying at the university.
Our home is ten minutes away from the city centre by foot

We have had four exchanges with England and France, all were wonderful experiences. For 2023 we are searching a change partner in europe!
