If you are looking for a home away from home then you should absolutely visit Midwest! Midwest is an old primary school building that has been renovated into offices, a cafe, and an event space. The old gymnasium is now a place to enjoy a cup of coffee or some lunch. You will still see the old gymnastic rings and the gymnasium floor, which looks so nice.

And the best thing: they have gardens on both sides with enough sunlight, so if the weather is good you can bring a book and relax. In one of the gardens is a greenhouse, where locals can bring their compost. In the other garden are bees and apple trees. They sell their own honey and give the apples away if it is the season for it. On the weekends they have jazz concerts for free or a small fee. And if you are working remotely you can book a table for a day and work on your laptop.
