House Berlin (1,5 h), Germany

We are a family living in the wonderful Region of the so-called “Spreewald” (“Spree” is a river and “Wald” means the forested region). Our sons (22; 25 years) normally would not travel with us.
We live in a village (Drehnow, with 600 inhabitants) near Cottbus, a cultural town with 100.000 inhabitants.
Special for our region is the “sorbic” Language. Some people, like my mother, can speak it too.

The Spreewald is a stream landscape with a lot of small feeders, which are perfectly for canoeing- or boat-tours. You can also take good bike-tours in the Spreewald.

We have got an art-gallery and a swimming-pool on our yard.

We have also a little second house in Berlin.

The location of our home is ideal, when you want to visit some big cities: You can reach both Berlin (north) and the UNESCO-World-Heritage-city Dresden (south) in 1 and a half hour.
The Czech capital Prague can be reached by train in 4 hours.
(…and many more, like Potsdam, Görlitz and Bautzen)
There are also a lot of small or big swimming lakes near our home.
Our past home-exchange-partners really enjoyed their holidays in our home!
We have collected our personal favorite tourist attractions in our region in the links.

Feedback: Nous avons réalisé un formidable échange avec Doris et Wilfried. Nous n'avons pas eu la chance de les croiser, mais nous avons beaucoup correspondu durant l'été. Leur maison est un havre de tranquillité, exactement conforme aux photos, dans un petit village isolé. Nous avons apprécié chaque jour la terrasse, la piscine et le jardin. Les vélos nous ont permis de découvrir la région grâce à de nombreuses pistes cyclables. Le village de Dissen avec ses cigognes en août et son échoppe de glaces maison sont incontournables. Nous sommes aussi allés à Berlin, Potsdam, Dresdes, dans la vallée de la Spree faire du canoé et à la frontière polonaise visiter le musée de plastination. La maman de Doris qui vit en face de la maison est charmante et attentionnée. Luna, le chat, est très facile à vivre. Nous avons eu la chance d'être bien accueillis par les voisins, Tobias et Sellina, anglophones, ce qui était très appréciable dans cette région où il est souvent difficile de trouver des gens qui parlent anglais en dehors des très grandes villes. Pour le côté pratique, plusieurs supermarchés à proximité, boulanger dans le village le samedi matin. Nous recommandons vivement cet échange.
