Arbeit

In the centre of the village of Aach there has been an area with several small ponds. The ponds were filled and now the place should become a green area for everybody to meet and enjoy life outdoors. This workcamp will mark the first step in this transformation process by creating paths, some wooden benches and a first element to attract people (maybe high flower beds or an insect hotel, but this has still to be confirmed). Please be aware that working outside in March can be quite challenging, the weather might be fine but it can still be quite cold and rainy (or even snowy). In case of long-lasting bad weather conditions you will work on the renovation of the village’s barbecue hut (indoor and partly outdoor).

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

in a community centre, in rooms called "family barn". Usually these rooms are offered to people in the village to celebrate birthday parties or similar events, or to local initiatives for trainings. Beds will be provided, but you have to bring your sleeping bag. There is also a small kitchen and you can use the bathrooms of the sport shall which is in the same building.

Lage und Freizeit

Aach is a village with approx. 1.000 inhabitants not far from Trier in Western Germany near the border to Luxemburg. It offers several pubs but no shops, friendly people and a beautiful landscape. The village is situated in a deep valley, the different houses climb up the steep hills. You can go hiking, make barbecues, discover nature, and have different activities together with locals (e.g.an international cooking event or a training session together with the local voluntary fire-brigade…). The number of excursions will be limited due to the poor local transport but for sure you will visit Trier, the oldest German city with many Roman sights (as Porta Nigra), a famous cathedral, many clubs and events ...

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Aach is a small village not far from Trier. After two great international workcamps in 2017 and 2018, the local community is really enthusiastic about workcamps. If you look for a project answering a local need combined with an intense exchange with locals, Aach is the right place to be.

Arbeit

This year, you will help with the set construction! In 2019, two plays will be performed (“West Side Story” and “The Thief Lord”) and the stage needs to be renewed accordingly: In the end, the scenery is supposed to look like Manhattan in the fifties and Venice at the same time – a very interesting and challenging task! Therefore, you will create house fronts, floors, stairs, even a building and a Venetian gondola! You will screw, nail, and paint. Smaller requisite needs to be manufactured, too. There will be a work instructor who helps you with all tasks. For sure it is helpful though, if you have a bit of experience in manual/constructional work and used tools like cordless screwdrivers before.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated directly on the project side: Next to the stage, there is huge building for administration, a workshop, a café … here you will have two rooms for yourselves, showers, a kitchen and a common room. Please don’t forget to bring a sleeping bag!

Lage und Freizeit

Heidenheim an der Brenz is a town with about 46.000 inhabitants. The area is rather rural with a beautiful countryside: since it is at the end of the Swabian Albs, there are many hills and forests. There is a castle and a wildlife park in Heidenheim, very close to your project. If you would like to visit a larger town, you may go to Ulm which is only 30km away. But also Stuttgart and Munich are just about 2 hours by train!

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Your host is the Open-Air Theatre Heidenheim, the 2nd largest one of its kind in Southern Germany. It is situated on the “castle hill” of the town, surrounded by forests, and can accommodate 1100 spectators.

Arbeit

The building itself is already finished; however, there’s still work to do in the surrounding garden area. Your main task will be the renovation of an old construction trailer: On the outside, you will add timber cladding and set up a terrace. Inside, a new floor is needed, and the walls need to be covered. Also, you will set up a ramp that allows people in wheelchairs to access the construction trailer. Once it is finished, it will be used by children to play in, and occasionally as a small “backstage area” for bands that perform in the “Adventure Land”.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will be accommodated in the “Adventure Land” itself: There are two big rooms with sleeping mats, a kitchen, and sanitary facilities – everything you need. Have a look at pictures of the new building and area here: http://faz-hochrhein.de/abenteuerland/category/blog/

Lage und Freizeit

Lauchringen is a small and pretty town in the very South of the Black Forest. It is just a stone’s throw away from the Swiss border and not far from places like Lake Constance and the university town of Freiburg. Lauchringen itself offers everything you need: shopping facilities, cafés, bars and much more.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The community of Lauchringen is going to host an international workcamp for the second time. The project will take place in cooperation with the “Familienzentrum” (family centre), an organisation that offers various programs for people of all ages to meet, exchange and educate themselves. In 2018, they built an “Adventure Land”: A big house with sleeping facilities, a kitchen, sanitary facilities, a workshop space and a big common room. This place is going to host groups during school holidays and offer an afternoon program for children and youngsters.

Arbeit

Come to Grimburg Castle, enjoy living on the castle and support the maintenance of the castles’ grounds! There will be two parts of work: 1. Maintenance of the castle’s grounds: Usually local volunteers care for the maintenance of the castle but due to the enormous workload, they really need your help. You will do various works: cut bushes and grass, protect the masonry, maintain the historic mediaeval herb garden and do some cleaning work in the castle’s and witches museum. The work will depend on the weather conditions. 2. Support the castle’s festival on May 30th: You will be involved in the local team of volunteers, help with the setting up, sell food and drinks and wash up dishes. Of course you will also celebrate together with the local volunteers. A second huge topic is your support in the preparation and organisation of the castles’ festival. You will become a part of the local festival team and of course celebrate together with them.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Your group will stay in one of the small towers of the castle – you will feel a bit like you are living as former inhabitants of the castle did. At night you will have the castle for your own; you can make a campfire and enjoy living in the nature. The conditions are basic; you will use the first floor for sleeping (bunk beds) and the ground floor for cooking and eating. There is electricity but no running water in the tower itself. Toilets and a shower are within 50m. Of course, there is also no internet available. Please bring a sleeping bag and a flashlight.

Lage und Freizeit

The castle Grimburg is overlooking the forests and valleys of the region called “Hochwald” (“high forest”). The castle is quite isolated; the next village (the name is also Grimburg) is in a 2km distance, the next shops are in Hermeskeil (10km). The castle is surrounded by nature and you will have the chance to enjoy it (just go for a walk...). Nevertheless you will also meet local people and share time with them or make an excursion to Trier, the oldest German city with 100,000 inhabitants. Here you can find many historical sights from the Roman period, many clubs and events (as it is a university town) and all other facilities.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

For the 7th year, a workcamp will take place at the castle Grimburg. Built by the Trier archbishops around 1190, the castle has been destroyed and reconstructed several times. Awakened from its centuries-long sleep in 1978, a local group of volunteers started to reconstruct the castle again, including work on the very impressive castle keep. However, most parts are still a ruin and in the past years, efforts have been made to increase the castle’s accessibility and attractiveness of this unique site. Today, the castle is still maintained by an association run by local volunteers. It has become a popular destination for hikers, as well as a site used for weddings, youth activities, historic markets and knights’ festivals. During the workcamp the local association will organise a small festival on the castle on May30th where they also need your help. www.burg-grimburg.de
