Offering home stays to visitors is a long-standing tradition in the neighborhood of Threefold: Local residents rent their guest rooms to short-term visitors who come to attend courses, workshops and events on the Threefold campus. To help visitors and householders find each other, Threefold maintains a list of rooms available for rent. Please note: The Home Stay list is provided as a courtesy. Householders are responsible for the information contained in the list; the information has not been verified by Threefold. Householders and guests are responsible for all home stay arrangements.
