The Experience

We are a community of potato lovers in the north of Germany. Our passion is cultivating potatoes from all over the world, cooking tasty dishes and serving them to our guests. We run the one and only potato farm hotel in Germany. Every day we repair, renovate and finish building things. In addition, we fell trees and chop wood. If you are a handyman, then you are more than welcome to help us. We plan with 5 days a week and 6 hours per day.

I really enjoyed my experience at The Kartoffel Hotel. Everyone, from the host to the workers, have been warm & welcoming from the beginning and made me feel like I was at home. There are the hostel language classes once a week which is very helpful if you're new to the hostel language (like me) as it will help you to communicate better with your colleagues. The tasks are straightforward, some tasks are more physically demanding but you if you have the right attitude and a strong work ethic, you will excel in all tasks given to you. 100% recommended to anyone looking a unique, fun experience.

I would recommend this as your first volunteer experience. People were great, work was as accorded, and I left the place with plans to come back. It is noticeable the help provided by the "workies manager" and the patient of the kitchen ladies with me because I didn't speak practically a word of the hostel. The only thing I can complain about (apart from the lack of sun) is that somedays I had to work under the rain, something that they changed during my stay. In general, I recommend the potato hotel, it is a good place to meet people and get to know yourself better.

My experience as a volunteer in a hotel in Germany, taking care of maintenance and housekeeping, was incredibly rewarding. The teamwork atmosphere and the friendly vibe among the staff made each day fantastic. Helping out with the hotel's maintenance while enjoying good times with my colleagues made my volunteering experience the best. The friendly environment and the hotel's commitment to quality made my time there both productive and enjoyable. I highly recommend the experience for those looking for something enriching. It was awesome!

I really enjoyed my time! I met lots of wonderful people, connected with nature and learned new skills while working with the Hausmiester. It is a beautiful part of Germany where one can really connect either nature and skill meet travelers from around the world. I stayed almost 2 months and even though it was winter, I found a good amount of activities to do to stay busy.
