It was one of the best places I've ever volunteered, it was really cool to help in the kitchen to serve food to people who need it. You have plenty of free time to explore Germany and a room to yourself. I highly recommend it!

This was a nice experience since I got to know many locals and international travelers.
The work is actually very rewarding and the hours are the ones expected.
I’d recommend this for someone that can be proactive and also to the people that would like to travel around Germany.

Being at Petershof was a truly wonderful experience! You can make an impact in this role and get to directly address needs of local people.

As others have mentioned in their reviews, language can be a pretty significant barrier. If you have no German language skills, it is definitely important to be patient and it can be very beneficial to learn a few basic phrases.

Working hours were as expected and the days off each week allowed for a lot of time to explore Duisburg and cities nearby.

Me encanto demasiado la experiencia! El trabajo llena mucho el corazon! Este es un voluntariado perfecto si te gusta ser independiente! Las horas de trabajo se respetaron, todos fueron muy amables siempre! Tienes mucho tiempo libre, por lo que puedes disfrutar y conocer Alemania! Fue increible!

Petershof was my first experience.
We'd got a great meeting with the main organiser, who take time to explain where we are, what are the tasks and show to us all the place where're we at with kindness and a good English !
The tasks are not hard plus you're surrendered with people who just want to help us !
My best regards to Mary, Yannik, Kai.
And to all the travelers who shared with me!
