House with a spectacular panoramic river view in nature near Heidelberg old town

We have arranged exchanges in May, June and August 2022.
News: 9€-Ticket June-August 2022 for bus and regional train in Germany.
We are open to exchanges in November, around New Year 2022 and for 2023.

Welcome to our lovely home with panoramic view and 5 bedrooms near river, forest, brewery, swimming pool, philosophers path and old town/bridge/castle (4km - 10 minutes).

We are a friendly and enthusiastic family of 3, including two teenage-girls and our animals.

We live in a wonderful 220qm architecture house with 800qm garden directly outside of the city of HEIDELBERG. The historical city center and the castle can be reached by bus in only 12 minutes and the train station in 20 minutes! The house is situated in a green area, surrounded by woods, sheep, goats, deers, monastery with restaurant and brewery and public swimming pool with fantastic & relaxing view.

Our place is perfect for relaxing, exploring the area and South-Germany and for celebrating (with students) in Heidelberg old town & old bridge or Neckarwiese.

Our house has all luxury, a fully equipped kitchen, four terraces with river view, the large garden with trampoline, barbecue and fire place and the nature around our house. You can use our 3 bicycles (and car) if you like.

The living room contains 70m2 on two floors with a large wooden table and a nice TV corner besides. From there you get into the fully equipped kitchen with view on the paddock, the bathroom with view and door into the garden (sometimes you can see deers) shower, tube, 2 washing places, guest WC, the master bedroom with a double bed, morning sun and access into the garden and three teenager rooms, two with double beds and one with a single bed. From each room you can look and mostly go into the garden with its terraces. Downstaires we have one female student living there separated and lockable with extra kitchen, bath and entrance which works very good and quiete (Moving out in July 2022). You can find there the big wooden terrace, a working room with another double-sleeping-coach place and a yoga room, upstairs you will find another terrace with two seating corners and river view. Table kicker, hometrainer, Yoga corner, piano, WiFi, Netflix (TV isn‘t working), lot’s of prospects and tourist maps.

You will enjoy your stay in our house! We will be respectful with yours. We are non-smoker and do not accept smoking.

We like this way of traveling very much and we are completely enthusiastic about it! During our last 13 exchanges we made unforgettable experiences in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Belgium, London, France and we love the opportunity to be immersed in a culture and a country.

The weather in our region is mostly fantastic, warm and sunny - from April until September/October we have 20°, from June until August up to 38° - it is ideal for exploring cities and being in the nature or in one of the sees or in a public pool.

We live in a relaxing neighbourhood with beautiful houses and views. Shops, transport and leisure possibilities are close (5-10 minutes). From our house above the river you have a magnific view over the village, the river Neckar and the Odenwald-forest. Heidelberg-Ziegelhausen is one of the famous districts of Heidelberg with direct access to the famous philosophers path ("Philosophenweg") nearly behind our house, to the public swimming pool and the monastery with brewery and restaurant.

It takes only 10 minutes for 4km with public transport to be in the historical center of Heidelberg, a beautiful old town and young living city with its attractions like the castle, theatres, museums, cinemas, zoo, markets, bars and restaurants. The bus station can be reached in 7 minutes with direct access to Heidelberg train station.

Heidelberg is one of the Unecso cities of literature. https://www.unesco.de/en
There are literature festivals in summer and autumn. A great experience is the open air theatre at the castle during the summer with view and sunset above the city and the river. Also a boats trip on the river, in summer with possibility to see the castle firework, is an experience as the zoo, the different sees and public swimming pools, the old town. The Heidelberg theatre has a good orchestra with concerts, the theatre in Mannheim (30min) is after Frankfurt (1h) the best in Germany, there are famous operas with subtitles.

Please notice our two cats which are living and sleeping in-and outside the house and need to be feeded once a day and looking for some love:-) Our dog will be in a pension (or with us if you accept). Further we have two sweet rabbits in a big rabbit cage outside which need to be feeded once a day.

We are looking forward to you and new adventures! :-)

Best greetings, Kristin, Zoé and July
