1 story house in Tübingen, Germany

Hello,
Best Greetings from South Germany!
 
First, we'd like to introduce ourselves:
TILMAN,  retired teacher
MONIKA,  pensioner former nurse
ZORRO,  black tomcat
 
We live in a nice bungalow on the outskirts of the ancient university town of Tuebingen, in calm surroundings, directly near a large forest. The „Schönbuch“( beautiful beech ) is a nature reserve of about 20 km in diameter. There is a large number of hiking trails which begin directly behind our house. Two kilometers away there is a hamlet of three farms with organic farming and whole food shops.
You can reach the town - with a beautiful mediaeval centre - within 5 min (by car or by bus). There are lots of sights (see www. Tuebingen.de): In this oldest part of the town you can find – apart from many timber-framed houses - a big Gothic church, the Renaissance castle of the Counts of Wuerttemberg and the magnificent Renaissance Town Hall, the river Neckar with its enchanted tower of the poet Hoelderlin and its rowing boats and punts.
 
By car you can reach the mountains of the „Swabian Alb“ in 30-40 min (a Jurassic mountain range with a plateau between 900-1000 m of altitude) . On one of its foothills stands the Hohenzollern castle ( ancestral seat of the Prussians ). The region of the picturesque baroque churches of 'Oberschwaben' is also in easy driving distance..
 
The Black Forest and the Lake of Constance ( biggest German lake) can be reached by the Autobahn ( highway) in 1-2 hours, as well as the Rhine falls of Schaffhausen in nearby Switzerland.
( A file with lists of excursions, hiking trails, brochures , shops and supermarkets and recommendable restaurants for our exchange partners will be be prepared )
 
If you should like to breathe city air, you can visit Stuttgart, the capital of our 'Land' Baden-Wuerttemberg ( 45 min to the city centre, Stuttgart Airport 25 min by car). There you will find the car museums of Mercedes and Porsche, art galleries, the Old and the New Castle and a big pedestrian precinct, „Königsstrasse“ (shopping area ) etc.
( By the way, the factory outlets of BOSS, Escada, Esprit, Adidas etc are only 15 km away from Tübingen )
 
Our house offers all conveniences, a large garden (garden grill) and a nice terrace with sunshade. The house was modernized thoroughly in 2005. There is room for up to 5 persons ( a large bedroom, a smaller bedroom with two beds, washbasin and TV on the ground floor and a smaller bedroom next to the large bedroom) .The bathroom has a shower and a bathtub. There are of course houshold appliances like washing machine, dishwasher, microwave so that you can live comfortably an cosily.
 
 
Thank you and best greetings from,
 
Monika and Tilman

About Our Family

We like travelling together with a married couple, friend of ours (4 adults altogether)

Lifestyle

Monika has been an Intervac partner since 1981, Tilman since 2003.
We went to Denmark, France, Austria, Scotland, Switzerland, Netherland, Belgium, Spain, Iceland,-- not only for an exchange, but also for house-keeping.
It has always been a great experience. We got to know a lot of nice people without having any trouble at all.
