In Wietzetze, very close to the village of Hitzacker, emerges the Landhotel Pferdeschulze,
the alma mater of hundreds of people in search of a green, rural ecosystem and
However, this is not just a hotel, but an equestrian centre full of vibrant activities that attract
people from all over Germany and even as far away as Australia, with a constant stream of
nature and equestrian enthusiasts coming and going.
This family business has Welsh roots, so we embrace any kind of multiculturalism. If you
want to come and help us, you are more than welcome!
We receive a variety of volunteers on a monthly basis who are looking for goals as varied as
a sense of freedom or the intention to practice their German, which is made possible by both
the Schulze family and the staff who are willing to help.
We offer a full range of daily meals (with vegetarian and vegan options!), accommodation
and two days off per week. In return, we simply ask you to help with some of the hotel's
chores; from cleaning rooms and kitchen work to maintaining the horse stables. Of course,
we are willing to listen to what your predispositions are once you are with us.
And remember, if you are one of those who love to wake up with the morning dew and go to
bed with a brilliant array of star constellations, the Landhotel Pferdeschulze is the right place
for you. Go ahead!
you'll get out, what you put in! Only together can we rock the boat!
Hi!, I am Max, one of the managers of this family business. For many years we have had a
strong interest in promoting volunteering at the Landhotel Pferdeschulze, a nice way to
integrate, enjoy and learn from other cultures of the world.
If you have a great love for nature and animals, I have no doubt that we are the perfect place
for you, where you can fulfil your volunteering goals in a respectful, peaceful and pleasant
Regarding the language, some of the staff speak English fluently, but if your goal is to learn
German while helping us, there are workers who only know German who are willing to help
Finally, once you plan your trip to Wietzetze, I recommend going from Hamburg. There you
will need to take a train to Lüneburg, and from there you will see several buses that will drop
you off within an hour in the vicinity of the hotel. Nowadays in Germany there is a monthly
ticket with which you can travel on any public transport in the country, so you have no
problem taking the various transfers.
The Schulze family and the other volunteers are waiting for you!
