About Me

I love the way of traveling couchsurfing offers. It's a great opportunity to meet interessting people and locals with whom you experience so much more than on a standard tourist trip. That's why I like hosting myself. I want to show people a little bit of the way I am living and of the beauty of Europe.

I did a 4 month roadtrip through the USA and Canada in 2010 with my brother where we shared a profile . If you want to see more references, you should have a look on the profile "Michael M.". It's in my friends list.

Some facts about me (since I don't like writing long texts...):
I love dancing, doing sports, nature, being outdoors, enjoying the silcence of a forest, horseback riding, historic places, castles, historic cities, good food, meeting interessting people, practising foreign languages, travelling, watching funny movies and tv shows, reading and watching docementaries about history...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


After I surfed so many places with my brother during our roadtrip through North America and during every vacation I had in Europe since, I want to return the favor and host people and make their time in Germany a great experience!


I met many great people while couchsurfing in the USA, Canada and Europe. I always had a great time and it was interessting to experience more than just the "tourist stuff". Now, I sometimes still surf couches when I travel to get to know interessting people and have a more authentic travel.


dancing (especially Rock'n'Roll and Salsa), horseback riding, doing sports in general, hiking

The history nerd in me ventures to Campus Galli several times a year to participate :) It's a medieval construction site where they are building a 9th century monastery with the techniques and tools of that time. They will keep on building for the next 80 years... So if you are in South Germany near the border to Switzerland, you should definitely check it out! www.campus-galli.de

Music, Movies, and Books

If I read at all, it's often a book or magazine about history.
Movies: action, dancing and Disney movies. I know, it's a weird combination...
Music: Most of the time I listen to classical or film music. Apart from that I like Rock'n'Roll, 80s, black music, latin american music.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Riding through my favorite forest with my horse all by myself.
Hiking through the Earnslaw Burn Valley, New Zealand, to the foot of the glacier and camping in the wilderness being all by myself and the only person in the valley. Amazing and frightening at the same time!
Walking through the Lower Antelope Canyon, USA - what a play of colors!
Hiking up on Angels Landing in Zion NP, USA, for me a quite scaring experience (when you are not good with heights ;) )
Having a tasty birthday barbecue directly on the beach of Maui, Hawaii with my brother.
Walking the streets of ancient Pompeji, Italy.
Seeing what the Romans built 2000 years ago in real life.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I just like hearing about you and what you've experienced in life so far.
I don't like cooking too much (I prefer eating ;) ), but still I think cooking together is great way of introducing one's own culture to someone.
