It was a wonderful experience! The whole family is very kind and the place and the meals were amazing. It's a good place for those who want to spend sometime enjoying the nature. Highly recommend!

The stay was wonderful, the Schulze family is super communicative and cares about how the volunteers are doing and if we are good or needing something. I felt very welcomed and cared for. I enjoyed the work and the tasks! Pros: Private environment for volunteers, contact with animals, suitable for relaxing, good food. The staff is amazing, I already miss them all! I was able to train and watch football matches, if you go to join I recommend bringing football boots. Tip: bring rainwear and waterproof shoes and please take good care of my horses! Cons: I had to leave

I had a really good time in Wietzetze. It's a wonderful and lovely place, but very far awy from averything though, what makes it hard to get there and move from there. Apart from this, Max and the rest of the family are great people and sure will try to make things easy and comfortable for the volunteers. Overall, it has enabled me to travel, visit lots of places, meet new people and gain job experience, as well as practicing sport and my english. In few words, despite some problems you may have (problems are part of the normal life, can happen) I do recommend it to anyone.

This has been my third volunteer so I know what I'm talking about. They were by far the best. They give you 3 real and complete meals per day. The work isn't so hard and they perfectly understand that you're a volunteer, not a worker. Really, the family love and want to have international people there. They make their best to make you feel as at home.

Staying and working at the hotel Pferderschulze was an amazing first experience! Everybody is very welcoming and ready to help, and it's clear giving us volunteers a good experience is important to the family. The tasks weren't hard at all and every member of the staff is very fun to work with :) so it was a pleasure to help at the hotel! The time spent not working can be a great opportunity to be in nature and enjoy the peace of the location. The connections made in this time felt really genuine and I hope we'll meet again, thank you for everything, Schulze family! :D
