Welcome to our house! We offer our typically red Norwegian house in a friendly village just 10 minutes outside Offenburg and 20 minutes away from Strasbourg, France.

Offenburg is a city with about 60 000 inhabitants, it's the gateway to the Black Forest. Strasbourg, the capital of Alsace (France), is very close (20 min by car/train). Freiburg (medieval university town) can easily be reached (45 min by train/car), Switzerland is also only an hour away.
Germany's largest theme park, the Europapark (, is only about 30 minutes away.

Our house (130 sqm) has three bedrooms, a bathroom and an extra WC. In the living room there is a TV, a DVD player and a Wii for the children. Of course there's lots of Lego, Playmobil and many games. We have books and DVDs in English and Spanish.
We have many garden toys, three bikes and a scooter, inline skates, a trampoline, etc
Offenburg is in the middle of vineyards and in the villages around you can taste some of the best wines in the world. Our region is also known for its excellent cuisine - staying here means enjoying a vacation with all your senses!

The closest airports are Strasbourg (20 min), Karlsruhe/Baden (40 min), Basel-Mulhouse and Frankfurt(90 min).
Cheap flights with Ryanair (to Karlsruhe-Baden) or Easyjet (to Basel/Mulhouse and Strasbourg)).
We offer our car, a 2011 Volvo V50 (child seats available).

Please feel free to contact us for questions! We are looking forward to welcoming you to our home :) (many pictures of our house - a construction blog) (for hiking trails)
