Learning & Fun


Sammatz is a great place for a work exchange experience. All the people in this community are very welcoming, both the locals as well as all the volunteers. You can expect to get to know people from all over the world, to learn a lot with the jobs and to have an overall great time. Time really flew by me on my stay.

If you're coming to Sammatz, make sure you know that although this place has a lot of great thing to offer, you do need to work quite a bit. Also, be aware that you'll be living in a house with many people, and you will be sharing a room.

I am definitely coming back!
