My experience in Sammatz was absolutely wonderful! People there were very welcoming and made me feel at home. I had the chance of working in different places (café, garden, shop, dairy, office), so I could learn a lot. The community of volunteers was amazing as well and I made friends from all over the world. The landscape is really beautiful and it's easy to move around by train, so I could also discover some towns around Germany. Overall a highly recommended experience. I'm very grateful to everyone in Sammatz and will definitely come back as soon as I get the chance :)

This is my 2nd time in Michaelshof, after 3 months, I decided to come back to learn new things & discover my hiding skills until now I'm not believing that I'm working as a waiter in Michaelshof Cafe, that's helping me to improve my german while taking orders. This place is amazing if you want to work in different kinds of jobs this is your area, you don't need to be an expert you will learn in a couple of days. This community is really super big, the volunteers are coming all over the world, friendly people, I feel home. I'm still here for a couple of months. مع السلامة معكم أسامة من المغرب

It is one of the places that I really like. People are very friendly and are always aware of how you feel. The place is very big and beautiful. The facilities are very comfortable and the food is great. I take beautiful moments, friendships and new things that I learned. Would return without a doubt.
