Volunteer, intern, digital nomad, working holiday in Denmark?

Description:
Our Bed & Breakfast is situated in an old deanery (approx. 160 years old) in a small village.

I am 59 years old, I live in an apartment at the B&B. My son who is 34 years old also lives at the B&B in one of the apartments.

We are also using the house for other business-related activities, besides the B&B.
We run some online activities from here and have clients for psychotherapy and courses for private, companies and government. WorkAways have nothing to do with these jobs.

International travelers, volunteers, workaways, digital nomads, interns, trainees, etc. spending time at our B&B on a work and travel program (Working Holiday) will find a beautiful, peaceful, relaxing place to find yourself. Experiencing the local area or go together with bus or train to nearby interesting cities, Horsens, Skanderborg, Aarhus, Aalborg, Odense, Vejle, Fredericia, Silkeborg, Billund, Copenhagen, Hamburg, etc.

Culture:
Working and interacting with Danes allows international travelers to not only build personal relationships but also to learn about Danish culture from a local perspective.

In the B&B we have a lot of international customers, mainly from Europe, where the possibility of meeting new people also occur.

Help us understand your culture with your insight from growing up there, so we better can understand your country.

Help:
At our Bed & Breakfast, we need help with cleaning, gardening, general maintenance and renovation/building of smaller projects.
