Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Dear Future Au Pair,

We are thrilled that you are considering joining our family as an au pair! We understand that the decision to live and work abroad can be a big one, so we want to do our best to make you feel welcome and informed about what you can expect during your time with us.

First, let us tell you a bit about our location: We live in the beautiful village of Hinterzarten, which is located in the heart of the Black Forest. The region is known for its picturesque landscapes and outdoor activities, such as hiking, skiing and cycling. Our village is particularly known for the famous Adlerschanze, a ski jumping hill that has hosted many international competitions and events, and is also a tourist attraction in summer. It's just 30 minutes away from the city of Freiburg by train, meaning that you will have easy access to all the sights and activities that the city has to offer, while also enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside. Plus, the train station is nearby (15 minutes walk), making it very convenient for you to travel.

A bit about our family, we are a family of three: Janine, 31, is a teacher; Niklas, 31, works in IT; and our lovely daughter Lou, who is 2.5 years old. We are looking forward to having you as part of our family, and hope that you will feel comfortable and happy here with us.

We are excited to get to know you, and we hope that you will take the time to get to know us as well. We will do our best to make sure that you have a great experience living with our family and that you will be able to make many happy memories during your time here.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to welcoming you to our home and our beautiful village of Hinterzarten.

Best regards,
Janine, Niklas and Lou
