General description

  • Main home
We live in a small house in a village just 5 km from the lovely town of Hitzacker and the river Elbe and 10 km away from the forest Göhrde.
Our garden is relatively big and we are working hard on turning it into a forest garden.We share the house with our dog Sam and the property with our four running ducks, Mr. Rooster and the old hen Frida.
The house was built after the 2nd WW and we are slowly renovating it (ecologically) and making it cosy and inviting. It has two wood burners and a brand new gas heating system that keeps it nice and warm.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • A dog
  • Farm animals
Our dog Sam is a mixed shepherd dog (castrated male), aoon to be 6 years old. He is very cute and needs attention. We walk with him 3 times a day for between half an hour and an hour and expect you to do the same. Otherwise he spends time with us in the garden or just relaxes inside. We don't believe in or use any form of violance with him, and don't see ouselves as the dominant Alfas or anything like that, he is simply another member of our family.
We also have 4 running ducks who get food and fresh water once or twice a day and for now we replace their bathing water every 2nd day. hopefully we'll manage to build a pond for them soon so that will not be a na issue.
The chickens are old and only need to get food and fresh water once or twice a day.
The house just got a new central heating system installed so it is kept warm but there is also a wood burner on the second floor and wood has to be carried in. It is already chopped and stored outside, ready to be burned.

Our village is small and very quiet. most people would say that it is too quiet but we like it that way. We are surrounded by fields and the edge of a big forest is close by. The population is funny mixture between newcomers like ourselves who wanted to live a quiet life in the countryside and old farmers whos families have been here for over 500 years. The small town of Hitzacker is 5 km away and sits on the banks of the river Elbe. It has everything that one needs from doctors to bars and is very lively during the summer and autumn months.
We lead a "simple" life, working in the garden, taking care of our animals and renovating the house.

We love to read and have a big library that is getting bigger every year. The books are written mostly in English and are very versatile from Fantasy books to goat keeping.
Other than that we have about 20 boardgamey and an Xbox One.

Tourism and Leisure

  • Countryside
  • Forest
  • Museum
  • Cinema

The river Elbe is just 5 km away from us and offers many touristic opportunities as is the town Hitzacker. Many people ride their bicycle around the villages that surround Hitzacker since it is mainly flat.
The forest Göhrde is just 10 km away and has very old parts that are definitely worth seeing. We go for walks there on a regular basis.
The closes city is Lüneburg; it is very pretty and has a nice old part. It is easily reachable by train from Hitzacker.
