Volunteer at the community of Schwanfeld, the oldest village in Germany. Help restore the local museum and assistant a local festival.
Concordia is a not-for-profit charity promoting intercultural understanding, international peace & volunteer opportunities.
WORK: First, you will help out in the local museums (cleaning and restoration). Depending on the weather, you will also help to renovate hiking trails, possibly set up signs for a nature trail, clean out a stream, or do similar renovation and landscaping work to support the Municipal Maintenance Department.
For sure, you will also help out with the annual fair that will be taking place at the weekend. You will work with locals to prepare the festival, provide a helping hand in the stalls during the fair, and assist in dismantling afterwards.
ACCOMMODATION: The group will live in the local gym hall next to the school where they will have access to toilets and showers. The nearby community centre will provide a kitchen for you to use.
Why we recommend: If you’re after making new friends and experiencing German culture this project will give you the chance to get in touch with the people of the Schwanfeld community and learn more about local traditions. Schwanfeld is happy to show their treasures of the golden days to international volunteers and invites the group to get to know more about the south of Germany. The locals will be very welcoming and excited to meet the new volunteers after the success of previous years. Invitations by local associations and the village youngsters have led to many cordial encounters and friendships in the past.
