The Experience

Enjoy the stunning landscape in a rural german little town! I have a little guesthouse and many different tasks to be done here. Come and cook for me, according to my diet and for other volunteers in my old farmhouse. Help me with cleaning, painting, organizing, creative work, stone- and wood-work and whatever you might be able to do! In my house, I use renewable energy and I want to change even more! Welcome! Let's learn from each other!

I wanted to go with worldpackers in Germany, so ich found Alex place. I wrote to him and he answered quick. The coordination was good and I had tow great weeks there. Alex has often people there and so I also meet two travelers there (greetings). We worked the most time in the garden, planting, weeding etc. The hardest work was to make lite wood pieces for Energie, we worked two days for 10 hours but this big work he do just every to years and for that we got an off day. Alex is a nice, openminded person with big knowledge and an interesting life. I hab a good time there. 😁

This was my first experience and it was awesome! Alex is a great host, made me feel comfortable right away. He also helped me a lot with my German and shared great recipes. The food was tasty and the tasks easy. I would recommend this experience to anyone! :)

My experience with Alexander's volunteer program was great! In terms of the tasks and works given, the hours are not long so you can have enough rest, Alex is also flexible in giving different tasks according to your strengths and also teaching you new skills at the same time which is brilliant. Alexander is a great host and loves to talk with you and share his stories and experiences. There are certain rules you have to follow which is expected and I have no complains during my stay. Overall I enjoy very much of my first volunteer experience with Alex and hope someday I can go back again! :)

Alexander is a kind and genuine host, spending time with each volunteer! Tasks to do are not difficult and he will explain and provide you with everything you need to accomplish them. The village is quite small but surrounded by the beauty and calm of the countryside. I meet great people from around the world and got the change to improve in English!

Being a vegan my biggest struggle during the stay was with food but otherwise Alex is a great host. It’s great to work together with him. He is very friendly and engages in a lot of interesting talk about different projects that can be implemented in a farming context.
