Fairytale Castle Becomes Cultural Space (Neufra near Ulm)
Description: Help with garden- and renovation- work so that the beautiful fairytale castle and the historic vaulted cellar can be used for cultural events. Last year, volunteers cleared many cellars of rubble and brought many hidden treasure like antique tools, lanterns and benches to the light of day, but much remains to be done. The castle garden is laid out in Renaissance style and is often used for weddings, dance evenings and yoga workshops. You can help revitalize it and make it blossom once again.
Type of Work: Removing centuries-old rubble from the historic vaulted cellar, maintenance work in the garden, planning a flea market.
Study Theme: Learn more about the history of the hanging garden, monument conservation, and architecture.
Accommodation: On camp beds, toilet and outdoor shower. You will cook together. If the weather is nice, you can eat together outside and enjoy the beautiful view. Otherwise, you can stay in the cozy tower room.
Requirements: Outside, the temperature can reach 30°C, but in the vaulted cellar, it is always 9°C. So bring work clothes and gloves for the garden and vaulted cellar. You can also bring your musical instruments for cosy evenings. In your free time you can go on excursions to Riedlingen, Ulm or the nearby Lake Constance. So feel free to bring your bathing suit.
