The Experience

-Are you a craftsman: for example in terms of interior work, tiles, bathroom work, drywalls, laying floors, electricity, and insulation of pipes? Do you want to help build a theater or tiny houses? Then you are very welcome! We are now mainly looking for craftsmen who can build well. There is a lot of renovation work to do! -Do you like gardening/garden design? We have, among other things, a vegetable garden that must be taken care of :)

I was supposed to stay 4 weeks but I left after 2 weeks. That's because I applied for “horses and gardening”, but once there I found out the main tasks were about cleaning and preparing rooms for guests.
The work is not too hard but if you go there to learn about horses that’s not what it is about. Other tasks depend on what needs to be done.
Manfred, the host, was almost always nice and met all my specific needs in matter of food. The problem was communication, right from day one.
During your days off you can walk in the woods, and one day Manfred kindly drove me to the swimming pool.

I had a great time a Punkt XII. I improved my craft skills a lot. I recommend this place also to people who haven't much experience in handcraft, but are motivated to learn and improve their skills. On the other side you can care about the horses, help in the garden or household.
Manfred is an open minded and positive person. If you like you can be part of the daily yoga routine.
