The Experience

If you are looking for a fun way to travel and visit the (probably) greatest City in the world, don't look any further. We offer volunteers to stay with us and explore their wanderlust! You would help 5 times a week, from helping our cleaning staff to cooking with guests. If you have special talents (like being an artist, yoga instructor, etc.) that would improve our guest's stay, even better! And you would live in the direct city center!

I'm so happy with how my volunteering in 5elementens turned out! From day one, everyone from the staff was incredibly welcoming and nice. Even though because of corona there weren't as many volunteers as I was expecting, I feel so lucky to have met and shared this experience with the people I did:). Additionally, since we had a lot of free time, I was able to enroll in a language course and visit other cities. And Leipzig is such a beautiful city!!! I will definitely come back! :))

Everything - starting with the staff, the daily tasks and the accommodation - is great. Leipzig is also a beautiful city and you have a lot of time to discover it(best is by bike). If you're in doubt when checking this opportunity, well, you should lose that doubt and charge yourself with great expectations.

It was an incredible and unforgettable experience.
There I was able to meet incredible people from the boss to the volunteer guys, every time that i found one of them they gave me a smile and made me a stay more enjoyable, while you work it is laughter and chatting all the time and so time flies by .
In 5 Elements it was my first time doing a volunteering and the truth is I just want to go back.
