We are Els and Koos de Vos. In 1978 we first came in Franken in Lichtenberg. We were near the zone border with the former GDR. All the roads were there dead. Very strange. But Franken appeared so beautiful that we kept coming back ever. Now that zone boundary away and everything is back to normal. 12 years ago bought the house there "Fuchswechsel". Of space in and around the house and the lovely location on the edge of the stream valley we enjoy. And we also give another!
