The Vision

“How do we want to live, learn and work in the future?”

At the Alsenhof, we would like to explore this question together with different people and design and operate a laboratory for sustainable, innovative and open living and working environments.

Currently we are in the process of founding a cooperative in order to be able to offer the spatial, economic, ideational and communicative framework within which the members can actively and partially autonomously contribute.


The Alsenhof project sees itself as an evolving ecosystem. We are now looking for people to become active with us: 

    • Become part of the pioneer group as a co-living resident
    • Host your retreat or event here
    • Run our café
    • start your (learning) workshop or your business
    • support us in building up the Marktschwärmerei or
    • come to work in our Co-Working Space

The Place

The former farm is located on the outskirts of Lägerdorf and combines the tranquility of nature with good connections to infrastructure and village life.
It consists of a beautiful residential house, a huge stable with hayloft and a spacious garden.
All these areas together create a place where people from the city and the countryside contribute together to the common good transformation of our society.

The building blocks of the project

Our project consists of several complementary building blocks. These will flesh out and evolve over the course of the project. Here is an initial overview:

Co-Working: On 400 m² our coworking space allows working close to nature with rural charm for creative people and self-employed from the city and the surrounding area. Join us!
Co-Living: In our beautiful, spacious residential building with garden, we offer 7 rooms for short- or long-term roommates. If you want to be part of an innovative, warm and inspiring living and working project, you are right here with us. Join us for weeks, months or longer!
Co-Creation: In the 2000 square meter barn, in addition to coworking, a variety of co-creative, analogue creation will find space. We are looking forward to people who want to use and design these spaces on site. From workshops, makerspace, photo lab, exhibitions, seminar rooms to café/restaurant, everything is possible and desired. The space is there – here it needs you. If you want to realize your heart’s project as part of our cooperative, please join us!
Green Spaces: The residential building and the hall are each surrounded by large gardens that welcome creative, sustainable and innovative uses. Permaculture gardens, tiny houses and a hammock café are planned. If you have ideas and want to make something happen here, please join us!


You want to explore with us how regenerative living, learning and working in the countryside could look like in the future?

We invite you to come by for short or long term to

– get involved in the further development of the farm or realize your own project here or

– spend a workation here: warm community, nature and a beautiful coworking space inspire you for your work. 

Details are on our Co-Living-Page.

Come by, we look forward to seeing you!
