I've now done two stints at the Kartoffel Hotel and I've had the best time 😊 The host & staff have always been kind and courteous to me which made my experience here a positive one. You get ample amount of time off to explore the local area or the major cities (Hamburg, Berlin, Hannover etc). It's a great place to be if you're interested in meeting new people from different parts of the world, love being out in nature and/or want to immerse yourself in German culture. This place is my home away from home and I wouldn't hesitate to return in the future.

I highly recommend this place to volunteer, especially if it is your first experience. The place is beautiful and very rural, trails, lakes, and rivers abound for hiking and biking. Drinks are readily available, and there's even a sauna for relaxation. The food is delicious, and weekly German classes are offered. If you're seeking to learn and gain new experiences, this is the perfect place. Olaf is undoubtedly the best host, he and his team are pleasant, I'm grateful for the time spent with everyone, including fellow volunteers. It's truly a place worth returning to.

My time at the Kartoffel hotel flew by and was way too short, but luckily I feel extremely welcomed to come back whenever I want. The management was considerate, open, and professional and the other volunteers made the experience worthwhile and made the hotel feel like home. I mainly did outdoors work (chopping wood, landscaping, moving furniture) and work constructing potato-shaped bathroom for the hotel (sounds weird, but they don't look too bad). The food was always good - make sure that you like potatoes, you will have it with every meal. Bring work boots that you don't mind getting dirty.

I really enjoyed my experience at The Kartoffel Hotel. Everyone, from the host to the workers, have been warm & welcoming from the beginning and made me feel like I was at home. There are German language classes once a week which is very helpful if you're new to the German language (like me) as it will help you to communicate better with your colleagues. The tasks are straightforward, some tasks are more physically demanding but you if you have the right attitude and a strong work ethic,
you will excel in all tasks given to you. 100% recommended to anyone looking a unique, fun experience.
