Arbejde

The projects of Open Houses are based on sustainable principles. Therefore, the activities at Lohra Castle combine aspects of cultural heritage preservation and aspects of natural heritage preservation. The participants of the Workcamps carry out works in the green areas and the forests around the castle, restoration work and collaboration in renovation works.

Kost og logi

All costs linked to the project are covered, including food, accommodation, insurance and transportation during the stay at the project. Travel costs to and from the camp place are not covered. Participants should organise their journey to and from the project place by themselves and on their own expenses. Furthermore, participants should bring their own pocket money. ACCOMMODATION In most of Open Houses' camps the volunteers will live at the same places they also work on, what means that they live more or less on a building site. In most of the Heritage Volunteers Projects the accommodation is located in a certain distance to the working site. The accommodation is usually very simple; there are shared rooms with simple beds or mattresses at most of the places. Shower, toilet and kitchen are at the place, but sometimes not in the same building. The equipment is simple but fair. After work, when everybody wants to take a shower, there can be a limit of hot water. FOOD The meals will be prepared together as they are part of the community life, what means that every participant will be responsible for the meal at least once during its stay. So it would be very nice if the participants could bring typical recipes from home in order to introduce each other to the preparation of food from all over the world.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Lohra Castle is situated in the heart of Germany in Northern Thuringia. The castle, which is surrounded by a scenic hilly landscape, is located on the edge of a nature reserve area. Being one of the largest castles in Thuringia, the history of the castle Lohra begins in the Middle Age. The castle is more than 1,000 years old. Today, it includes twenty buildings from different times: medieval fortifications, remnants of a tower from the 11th century, a Romanesque chapel, a manor house from the Renaissance period as well as stables and granaries from the 19th and the early 20th centuries. The ensemble is situated in the centre of a beautiful forest. For years Lohra Castle was vacant. In the 1990s Open Houses started to restore the castle and to revive it by cultural activities. Since that time, a large number of Workcamps, Building Weeks, exhibitions, concerts and other activities with international participants took place in the castle.

Open Houses – rooms open for those who come along. Open Houses – not empty buildings, but places with visible and invisible traces of history, places which have grown and decayed over the centuries, places which were shaped by those people who lived there long ago as well those who left only yesterday – places which will be shaped by those who live there or who come as a guest. Open Houses – rooms which want to be filled with dreams and ideas, with meetings and exchange, by people of different backgrounds, different cultures, different generations and different ideas and visions. The history of Open Houses Network dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people started to restore village churches in East Germany in voluntary work to protect them from decay. The engagement for these buildings united people who enjoyed the freedom these activities provided and who filled these rooms with life again in ways which by far exceed the craftsmen's work done – through exhibitions, concerts, making music together or just sitting by the camp fire. Meanwhile, rooms free of political and ideological pressure are no longer urgently required; however, places have become rare where people can meet without commercial pressure, free of bureaucracy and institutionalism, free of nepotism and the exclusion which it produces. What should be easy – to go somewhere in order to meet people and to work together – has become difficult. The tightrope walk between, on the one hand, public activities in a monetary and functional sense, and the retreat into private life on the other, is very difficult, and it requires a lot of power and permanent efforts to tackle red tape and financial restrictions. Free spaces are less and less understood as common property, and are permanently being cut back. The idea of public property seems to have gone out of fashion, and places of common responsible work have become rare. Open Houses Network tries to create and protect such spaces. In this process, we do not want to be the doers, but be people who have a vision, who want to initiate something, but who also are aware of depending on the co-operation of others. We understand our projects and events as offers – as offers to create space for commitment, for changes, for meetings.

Arbejde

Conservation work with sheep and cattle in great surroundings and sightseeing in the big city! Both of these can be experienced during this camp on the outskirts of the metropolis of Hamburg. You will be working in the Hoeltigbaum nature reserve, a former training ground. A varied mosaic of different habitats has developed on the nature reserve since the last Ice Age. As a result, different successional stages of open soils, grass or mule corridors, and even some shrubs, can be found here, along with many rare and endangered animal and plant species. Where there used to be tanks, there is now vast, savannah-like grassland. Today there are sheep herds, goats and Galloway cattle in the area grazing all year round. Through this grazing, the areas are kept open, bushes are prevented from overgrowing and the biodiversity is preserved. You will support the animal "lawnmowers" at work and remove foreign plants such as bracken, lupins, Jacob's ragwort or small birch trees in order to prepare the ground for the underlying and displaced heather. Through this action you will be making an important contribution to nature conservation work, since using heavy equipment for the same tasks would destroy the heath. The work will take place on the pastures in the nature reserve. If you are lucky, you will see the cattle and sheep at work too. In addition to the practical work, you will learn a lot from the “Haus der Wilden Weiden” employees: about nature and environmental protection in general, and the nature conservation concept of a semi-open pasture landscape in particular. You will also learn a lot about the local flora and fauna, about year-round grazing as well as cattle and sheep farming in the field of landscape maintenance. More information (unfortunately only in German) about the Hoeltigbaum nature reserve and the “Haus der Wilden Weiden” can be found here: www.hoeltigbaum.de

Kost og logi

You sleep in a hostel in 2- or 4-bed rooms. A self-catering kitchen is available for all guests. The group will prepare and cook meals together there.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Landscaping in great surroundings and sightseeing in the big city! You can experience both of these things in this camp on the outskirts of the metropolis of Hamburg. Amongst other things, you will be working in the Heuckenlock nature reserve, an area of around 100 hectares of tidal forests and freshwater mud flats in the south of Hamburg's Elbe island, Wilhelmsburg. The area stretches 3km along the north bank of the South Elbe and is flooded about a hundred times a year by spring and storm tides. Due to its special location between the river and the countryside, and its freshwater tides that are unique within Europe, the Heuckenlock nature reserve is an important refuge for many plant and animal species that have long since been displaced by the cultivation of the landscape in other areas. It is the most biodiverse nature reserve in the Hamburg region. In order to preserve the mudflats and the banks of the Elbe as valuable natural and living spaces, you will be removing foreign plants from nature reserves Heuckenlock, Schweenssand and Auenlandschaft Obere Tideelbe under the guidance of employees of the Tidal Elbe Information Centre. The plants you will be removing are mainly Japanese knotweed. This process will be done with both hands and spades. This workcamp offers a great opportunity to get to know the Elbe from a completely different perspective. As a change from this strenuous and monotonous work, you will also be clearing up the accumulated rubbish in these areas. In addition to the practical work, you will learn a lot from the employees of the Tidal Elbe Information Centre about nature and environmental protection in general, as well as the nature and habitat of freshwater tides and their protection in particular. You will learn a lot about the local flora and fauna, the tides and their effects, as well as dikes and flood protection. For more information (unfortunately only in German) about the Heuckenlock nature reserve and the Tidal Elbe Information Centre, click here: https://www.goep.hamburg/heuckenlock/ https://www.goep.hamburg/umweltbildung/elbe-tideauenzentrum.php

Meals: The group will prepare and cook meals together. Money for food is provided. Accommodation: You will sleep on air mattresses in a modern youth centre in the suburb Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg

Beliggenhed og fritid

In your free time you could take a trip to the second largest city in Germany, where numerous leisure activities await you.

Area: Weisbach is a very small village in the mountains of Thüringen, not far from Saalfeld and surrounded by beautiful countryside with mountains, green valleys, forests and meadows. A fortress was built on a hill near the village in the 11th century but it was destroyed during the following century. It has become overgrown with trees and bushes since then. Systematic excavations began in 1984. Please be prepared to live and work in a very remote area! www.weisbach.info/bilder/bilder-von-weisbach Leisure Time: If you are interested in history, you will have the chance to learn a lot about the region and the fortress. You can travel to Weimar, which was the well known workplace of the poets Goethe and Schiller. You will be able to find out more about history and perhaps visit the former concentration camp Buchenwald. It will also be possible to go to a nearby castle called „Schloss Burg“. Perhaps you will get to see the concert of the world famous organ „Silbermannorgel“. You could go for a boat trip on the river Saale or just enjoy the natural environment while walking around the area. Please be aware that you will be in a very rural area from where it is quite difficult to get away (for shopping etc.), but there are very nice people in the village who are interested in meeting you.

During the work camp you are invited to join our campaigns and activities for peace. There is a lot to do: design artistically posters for the actions, set up and take down information stands, accompany political performances. You can also contribute with your own ideas and actions. Participation in blockades is not compulsory, but everyone should take part in the communal tasks. We believe that campaigns for nuclear disarmament and non-violent conflict resolution are messages worth spreading through the media. We invite you to learn from best practices in peace work and help us spread these examples as peace messages on social media. Your help for translation into different languages is welcome. Participants will learn interesting things about the history of the globally networked peace movement and its efforts for disarmament and reconciliation. We will exchange experiences about different forms of action for peace. As there will be contact with German native speakers, the work camp is a good opportunity to improve your German language skills. You are welcome to stay longer at the peace camp in Büchel and participate in the programme of the international week.

Kost og logi

Accommodation will be in tents. We will cook together, our meals will be vegetarian. You will need clothing for all weathers, basic camping equipment with tent, sleeping bag, sleeping mat, sunscreen.

We fight with non-violent actions to ban nuclear weapons. With this work camp, the Peace Workshop Mutlangen e.V. supports the resistance against the last nuclear bombs in Germany. As part of the national campaign "Nuclear Weapons Free", which is supported by almost 80 peace organisations, we participate every year in the non-violent protest at the airbase Büchel in the Eifel. We invite all volunteers to join us to learn more about the peace movement and to support our activities against nuclear armament. During the work camp we will take part in the church action day, the ICAN-IPPNW week and the international week. You will learn a lot about history of nuclear disarmament, confidence building measures and non-violent concepts in activism. In addition to workshops, there will be a bicycle demonstration, storytelling cafés, concerts and hikes, as well as plenty of time for getting to know each other and personal exchange: You can expect an exciting time of working together, learning and having fun in the great outdoors. You can meet active and committed people of all ages and experience a unique atmosphere of community and peace. The campaign: 20 nuclear bombs are still stored in the military camp at Büchel. They belong to the USA and are stationed in Germany as part of NATO's nuclear sharing programme. In case of emergency, the bombs are flown and used by German pilots on the orders of the US president. Instead of banning the storage and withdrawing the bombs, as required by international law since this year, Germany is modernising these weapons of mass destruction with billions of Euros. The campaign draws attention to the issue with the action presence "20 weeks - 20 bombs". The campaign is part of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2017 for its commitment against nuclear weapons.

If you are enthusiastic about nature and protecting the environment, the come to the Märkische Schweiz Nature Park: 40km to the east of Berlin, the park not only offers unique natural landscapes, but also the backdrop to our project. By working together with the park’s administration team and the Drei Eichen environmental education centre, you will not only get to know the park and its surroundings, but you will also play an active role in shaping it. There will also be young people from the local area on-site. People and pets live on the grounds of the Environmental Education Center “Three Oaks” - and often many guests: children, families, seminar groups. Together with you we want to build some roofs as rain protection - for the summer kitchen in the tipi village and for the storage of wood and construction material. For activities in between “Three Oaks “ (Drei Eichen) with its terrain offers many opportunities to learn about plants and animals, nature conservation and alternative ways of life and to actively participate. In different nature areas in the nature park Märkische Schweiz we will carry out landscape conservation work together on several days. In doing so, we will ensure the protection of the native plants that grow there. Historically, these sites were created and maintained by a lot of manual labor - mowing adapted to the season and grazing by sheep and goats. In our workcamp, we help with that. We also renew sections of hiking trails. All work will take place outdoors. Besides this, there will be a diverse programme of environmental educational activities for you to take part in! http://www.dreichen.de/

Kost og logi

You will be staying in shared rooms in the “Drei Eichen” (Three Oaks) environmental education centre, which is located in the middle of a forest, around 4km away from Buckow (www.dreichen.de). The group will prepare and cook meals together.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Educational Activities: You could take a GPS tour of the nature park, go on a guided walking tour on the topic of “biological diversity”, visit the bat museum, go swimming in the various nearby lakes, visit local cinemas and bars. In Buckow, there is a campfire place where you can sit around at night, a climbing wall and also a canoe hire in the nearby area.

The projects of Open Houses are based on sustainable principles. Therefore, the activities at Lohra Castle combine aspects of cultural heritage preservation and aspects of natural heritage preservation. The participants of the Workcamps carry out works in the green areas and the forests around the castle, restoration work and collaboration in renovation works.

Kost og logi

All costs linked to the project are covered, including food, accommodation, insurance and transportation during the stay at the project. Travel costs to and from the camp place are not covered. Participants should organise their journey to and from the project place by themselves and on their own expenses. Furthermore, participants should bring their own pocket money. ACCOMMODATION In most of Open Houses' camps the volunteers will live at the same places they also work on, what means that they live more or less on a building site. In most of the Heritage Volunteers Projects the accommodation is located in a certain distance to the working site. The accommodation is usually very simple; there are shared rooms with simple beds or mattresses at most of the places. Shower, toilet and kitchen are at the place, but sometimes not in the same building. The equipment is simple but fair. After work, when everybody wants to take a shower, there can be a limit of hot water. FOOD The meals will be prepared together as they are part of the community life, what means that every participant will be responsible for the meal at least once during its stay. So it would be very nice if the participants could bring typical recipes from home in order to introduce each other to the preparation of food from all over the world.

Beliggenhed og fritid

Lohra Castle is situated in the heart of Germany in Northern Thuringia. The castle, which is surrounded by a scenic hilly landscape, is located on the edge of a nature reserve area. Being one of the largest castles in Thuringia, the history of the castle Lohra begins in the Middle Age. The castle is more than 1,000 years old. Today, it includes twenty buildings from different times: medieval fortifications, remnants of a tower from the 11th century, a Romanesque chapel, a manor house from the Renaissance period as well as stables and granaries from the 19th and the early 20th centuries. The ensemble is situated in the centre of a beautiful forest. For years Lohra Castle was vacant. In the 1990s Open Houses started to restore the castle and to revive it by cultural activities. Since that time, a large number of Workcamps, Building Weeks, exhibitions, concerts and other activities with international participants took place in the castle.

Arrangeret af

Open Houses – rooms open for those who come along. Open Houses – not empty buildings, but places with visible and invisible traces of history, places which have grown and decayed over the centuries, places which were shaped by those people who lived there long ago as well those who left only yesterday – places which will be shaped by those who live there or who come as a guest. Open Houses – rooms which want to be filled with dreams and ideas, with meetings and exchange, by people of different backgrounds, different cultures, different generations and different ideas and visions. The history of Open Houses Network dates back to the mid-1980s, when a group of young people started to restore village churches in East Germany in voluntary work to protect them from decay. The engagement for these buildings united people who enjoyed the freedom these activities provided and who filled these rooms with life again in ways which by far exceed the craftsmen's work done – through exhibitions, concerts, making music together or just sitting by the camp fire. Meanwhile, rooms free of political and ideological pressure are no longer urgently required; however, places have become rare where people can meet without commercial pressure, free of bureaucracy and institutionalism, free of nepotism and the exclusion which it produces. What should be easy – to go somewhere in order to meet people and to work together – has become difficult. The tightrope walk between, on the one hand, public activities in a monetary and functional sense, and the retreat into private life on the other, is very difficult, and it requires a lot of power and permanent efforts to tackle red tape and financial restrictions. Free spaces are less and less understood as common property, and are permanently being cut back. The idea of public property seems to have gone out of fashion, and places of common responsible work have become rare. Open Houses Network tries to create and protect such spaces. In this process, we do not want to be the doers, but be people who have a vision, who want to initiate something, but who also are aware of depending on the co-operation of others. We understand our projects and events as offers – as offers to create space for commitment, for changes, for meetings.
