Work and Travel, Workaway and Working Holiday at the 1. German Potatoe Hotel


Who we are:

We are a community of potato lovers, situated in Wendland in he east of the Lüneburger Heide in Lower Saxony. The region is in the north of Germany from where you can easily go to Berlin, Hamburg, and Hannover (about two hours).
Our passion is cultivating potatoes from all over the world, cooking tasty potatoe dishes and serving them to our guests. Besides, we publish the best recipes in our internet blog. We run the one and only potato Hotel and restaurant in Germany and need help with any tasks related to it.

With us you can make experiences in organic agriculture and gardening. You can get to know the regional Farmfood and delicous potatoe recipies. The focus of the workaway internship is cultural exchange and volunteering.

Paid jobs are also possible, so it is a good idea to take a look at the various work areas first and then commit yourself to a longer period of time. If you like to stay with us, you talk to us during your volunteer time and we think together, which job opportunities you have with us. For all our workawayers, we take over the costs for accommodation, eat, drink and German lesson.


In advance, some words about us and our work:

We are a small hotel miles from anywhere in the countryside.
We offer you an internship, which gives you a perfect view behind the scenery of an Hotel & Restaurant, but you will not earn money. We take over the costs for accommodation, eat, drink and German lesson in our hotel. This is an internship which is completely in accordance with German legislation. We need help in the kitchen, service, room service and gardening, all in all simple jobs. We plan with 5 days a week and 6 hours per day.

We strongly recommend the conclusion of a travel health insurance, as we find it irresponsible to travel abroad without this. You should stay at least for 4 weeks. Please let us know when you would like to come.
