Welcome to the cultural center of Germany

Welcome to the cultural Center of Germany!
We live in a little town called Bad Berka close to the well known cities of Erfurt and Weimar. We are a family with four kids and we have enough space to host 2-6 guests. We have an enlargeable table up to 14 seats and we love it when all places are needed. We like to bring the world to Bad Berka and to show more and more of the world to our kids during our holidays. Therefor we are open to host exchange students in our guest suite or to change our complete house with another family.
Our house is surrounded by apple and plum trees. We have a huge garden with trampoline, wooden kids house, climbing and swinging stuff. Soccer can be played here and at the sports center 5 minutes away. We offer to you a house with 240 sqm living space. In the basement there is a room to play table soccer, table tennis etc. In the ground floor you´ll find one large livingroom (70 qm) combined with the kitchen and the dining room. In the ground floor there is parents bedroom , bathroom and our office. In the upper floor you´ll find four rooms for the kids, bathroom and separate toilet .
It takes a 2 minutes walk to reach the next bakery and the next supermarket. All the other facilities like the very important ice cream parlour, the public swimming pool and some more shops are not more than 10 minutes footway apart. Bad Berka is situated at the river Ilm in a very natural environment. Little villages nearby can be reached by hiking or with bikes (you can use ours if you want). For example the little village Tiefengruben once gained the price as “the most beautiful village of Germany”.
The nearby medieval cities of Erfurt (30 minutes by car) and Weimar (15 minutes by car or bus // 25 minutes by train) are very worth visiting. They have very lovely and lively city centers and a huge variety of cultural events.
