The Experience

Our yoga and ayurveda retreat is in the middle of nature. Your job in our garden in the fresh air is weeding, watering flowers and raking leaves. There are still a lot of other tasks in nature that have to be done. We plan with 5 days a week and 6 hours per day.

The best experience with volunteering I had so far! The workers are very kind and inclusive, making you feel at home right away. The volunteers I met here were super nice and friendly. The German teacher was also very fun to talk with! Overall it was an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend it!!!

I really enjoyed my stay at the Center. The staff is friendly and so are the other volunteers I met through my six weeks stay. I only did garden and renovation tasks but I did not want to change as my working schedule was convenient for me. Overall I think for those who want to take a break from life and have some alone time where they can breathe without worrying too much about the future the Center is a great place to rest between two traveling destinations.

This was my first worldpackers experience, and I had a magical time. What made this time so special was the amazing friendships I made with my 6 fellow volunteers. The staff at the Center made our stay equally as amazing, by planning parties for us, taking us on a special dinner excursions. The other volunteers and I planned movie nights, game nights, and talked late into the evening. The accommodations were comfortable and the food was awesome (especially breakfast)!! The work is clearly structured. There are 3 shifts: 6am-12:30pm, 8am-2pm, 3pm-9pm. I'm forever grateful for my time here

I had a good time in the Center, the place is amazing, the room, the food, german lessons, all very good. My colleagues are also amazing and we had good moments together. On the other hand, there was a misunderstanding about the task. On the platform I applied to the kitchen, but they put me on housekeeping. Then I said that I would leave if I had to do one more week of this task and they said that I could choose between housekeeping or go away and that's what I did. The boss said that he had sent me a message before about different tasks but I understood that that was a standard message.

Unfortunately, you didn't explain this misunderstanding correctly. To explain briefly, every intern is allowed to get to know and carry out different tasks with us. The goal is to get a good overview of the work in a hotel. For this reason there is a job rotation every two weeks, so that no intern has to feel disadvantaged and has the opportunity to try out and get to know different things. I explained everything to you in writing before you arrived. The problem was this: You just didn't want to help with the housekeeping. And you gave us the choice, either you can work in the kitchen again or you leave us before the agreed time. Since we want to treat all interns equally and we don't want to be blackmailed, we didn't respond to your request. To be honest, your behavior also reminded me a bit of my daughter, but she is 12 years old and not 30 years old and she is in the middle of the defiance phase ;-) Completely independent of this incident, we were happy to have you with us and them We will never forget the New Year's party together :-) Sunny Greetings from Germany, Olaf



I had a really good time at the Center. Found a beautiful group of volunteers from different countries which made me live a very special experience. Its a good place to be in contact with nature, out of the noise and hurry of the cities. Gives the chance of spending time with the creative side of yourself. The tasks are clear and working hours very respected, I think it's important to make a rotative timetable between all the volunteers, because some of the tasks are more demanding than others. The team is mostly welcoming, the volunteers room is very comfortable!
