It was my first time volunteering, and it was a great experience! You can learn a lot of different things during the tasks and the community in Sammatz is really good,understanding and kind ✨. You can meet people from many countries of the world, so it is also a good opportunity to practice other languages , get to know other cultures and make really good friends. Also, the nearby forest and gardens are wonderful, and the food is delicious too haha 😊. I totally recommend this place to anyone eager to learn new things and things about themselves in a safe space. Thank you for everything 💕

It was a great experience to stay in Sammatz.
The work is amazing you have a lot of different jobs that you can do, and they are really flexible, so if you don’t like any job just let them know.
I was able to practice German that was the main reason that I decide to do this volunteer. I met so many nice people, that I hope to have the opportunity to see them again.
I never tough that I would like to stay in the country side, but this volunteer exceed my expectations and for that reason I decided to stay a little bit longer.
Thanks to everyone that made my stay be unforgettable!!

There is something for everyone in Sammatz whether you'r interested to fully immerse yourself in a community close to nature or just looking for a break from the city. This place is absolutely beautiful and full of amazing people. No two days are the same as schedueles vary everyday, allowing you to learn about gardening,animal care, construction, cheese making.. The facilities are great, you have access to unlimited food plus lunch and cake in the afternoon. Rooms are shared but very comfy. I couldn't recommend this place more and hope to be back soon !!

Living in Sammatz is really, really special, you get to meet people from all over the world, you practice english, spanish and german, you learn from the locals to share, to care about people, to listen and what it really means to respect each other. Many times I felt like I was in another world, the place is so beautiful and well taken care of, the gardens and lake look perfect. In Sammatz I made friends I know I'll have forever, this place will always be in my heart. Please, if you have the opportunity go! :D

Sammatz is a very special place. I have met amazing and very interesting people from all across the world many of whom I consider very good friends and I have learned a lot of new skills. I decided to extend my stay because of the current Covid pandemic and I couldn't think of a better place to be during this time :)
This is also a great place to practice your Spanish!

The most valuable lesson I left Sammatz with is about growth. Just like how we worked together and planted seeds that grew into beautiful and rich plants and flowers, I found myself growing as a person connected with the natural reality around me during the month I spend in Sammatz.

My experience in Sammatz was absolutely wonderful! People there were very welcoming and made me feel at home. I had the chance of working in different places (café, garden, shop, dairy, office), so I could learn a lot. The community of volunteers was amazing as well and I made friends from all over the world. The landscape is really beautiful and it's easy to move around by train, so I could also discover some towns around Germany. Overall a highly recommended experience. I'm very grateful to everyone in Sammatz and will definitely come back as soon as I get the chance :)
