There’s always something going on at the Litsche Hus

There is always something going on at the farm. We take great pleasure in organizing various activities and events for young and old.

For example, in the summer of 2015, we had a big farm festival with a Low German church service followed by a handicraft market, thoroughly enjoyed a musical-acrobatic fairy tale play, and laughed heartily with the Low German "complaint choir" De Meckerkring.

There are regular cultural events and concerts at the Litsche Hus - we'll keep you informed about our events and news.

We would like to invite you to visit us at the Litsche Hus starting at 1:30 pm.

Planting: New orchard with 20 fruit trees

Garden planning at the Oste Holiday Farm

As part of a family celebration, we planted over 20 fruit trees in our old orchard "Thees-Schlossers-Garten" and "Beekwisch". Another planting campaign is planned for autumn.

These young trees need a lot of maintenance (watering, protection against game damage, protection against mice, and so on) until they bear fruit in a few years. We are looking forward to the common harvest!

Lale and Eda Oetjen in magical action

Fairy tale magic

In June 2015, a musical-acrobatic fairy tale evening took place. Margret Oetjen (formerly Lavenstedt - now Bielefeld) staged a fascinating fairy tale world with the help of her daughters Lale and Eda, as well as the violinist Piotr Miloslawski. Margret Oetjen has been appearing as a fairy tale actress for several years. Normally, she presents her program in High German; for the Litsche Hus, she performed it in Low German. The songs that she sang during her performance were also in Low German. With a clear voice and her own guitar accompaniment, she sang of love, grief and joy. The fairy tale world was brought alive in front of a fitting scenery.
