Germany / Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg
Karlsruhe, South Western Germany , very close to Heidelberg, France and Switzerland - spacious and comfortable 6-bedroom town house-style home.
Experience typical German life in the relaxed city of Karlsruhe. There are plenty of activities such as visiting the Karlsruhe palace, art museums (with original paintings by Rubens, Rembrandt, Cranach, Breughel, Monet, Degas, Kandinsky, Cézanne, Gaugin), the unique center for art and media technology and a landscaped zoo.
Karlsruhe has a wide range of restaurants serving traditional German cuisine and international specialities.
Our central location is ideal for sightseeing both within Germany and France as well as other European countries. Located very near the Black Forest we are only an hour away from Heidelberg, Frankfurt, and Freiburg. Half an hour's drive will take you to France with Paris only 5 hours away. In three hours you could be hiking in the Swiss Alps. Our spontaneous outings in the past have even included a day trip to Italy!
The regional airport of Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden offers extremely cheap flights to Rome, London, Florence/Pisa, Dublin and other cities (ryanair.com).
We are a family of six: My British wife Suzie (42), my daughters Kirsten (21, university student), Carina (18, just finishing school), Jenna (7, also in school), Emily (5) and me, Georg (46).
My wife and I work as self-employed English/German translators.
We are a mixed English/German family, and most of our books, DVDs, videos etc.
are in English.
We did an exchange in 2001 with a nice family near New York City and would like to exchange with a likeminded family, preferably in California or elsewhere in the West, or alternatively somewhere close to Southwest Connecticut.
We are all strict non-smokers and will only swap house with a non-smoking family.
