    My solution was au-pairing - you effectively don't have to pay for accommodation or food and you get a (admittedly small) wage too in return for looking after children for a specified number of hours a week.  I did this for 7 weeks one summer in Niedersachsen and really enjoyed it - I had free weekends to travel and was able to massively improve my German as I was living and working in the language almost all the time. 

    There are lots of reputable sites to find a family where you can specify certain environments and say how many children you are happy to care for. The one I used was aupairworld which was fab from my point of view. 

    If you can't bear children, however, it might not be the best idea!
