Everything about potatoes is the motto of our potato hotel, and our guests can enjoy the potato in the restaurant and in the wellness sector, too.

Helping with Tourists
We are looking for friendly people who like potatoes and would like to get to know the work in a hotel and restaurant. This means you can help us with any kind of activity and gain experience in dealing with our guests.
You can experience hotel work in all aspects, from the service in the restaurant to kitchen works and room service.
It is like an internship which gives you a perfect view behind the scenery of a German hotel.
We always try to find a project for you that hits your interest and your abilitites.
For example: We have an own potato field, where we cultivate different ancient sorts of potatoes and a herbal garden. If you like it, you can work outside with our caretaker and learn a bit about agriculture.
We love to have some extra-helping hands here and you will be part of our team soon.
We offer one of our guestrooms for accomodation. Some time in the year, when the hotel is fully booked, you´ll have to share a room or appartement with others. All rooms have a private bathroom.
We provide three meals a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Drinks like mineral water and fruit juice are also included.
If you want to learn or improve the German language during your stay, you can visit our language course, which mostly takes place once a week. The teacher is coming to the hotel. The language school is for free. Depending on your interest, you will work on social and ecological subjects.
Please consider that the language school is not always offered during holiday times.
Besides: You can practice your language skills with all of us during your daily work and free time.
All of our workawayers have made a book together, where you can find lots of ideas of what you can do during your free time (cycling and hiking tours, bus trips, places to see). This book is to be completed by everyone who stays with us.
We offer bicycles to go to the next town (Lüchow, 4kms) or even further. There are always possibilities to organize a car ride to Lüchow, sometimes also to Dannenberg, Hitzacker or Lüneburg. All of these towns have picturesque medieval citycentres and are worth visiting. The river Elbe is also near, part of the former German-German border and worth visiting for all those who are interested in the history of Germany.

The region where our hotel is situated, is known for its artists, artisans and many open-minded people with alternative lifestyles. There are lots of cultural programs around, e.g. the "Kulturelle Landpartie" in May, where we also take part with an Open Air Concert.
The county "Lüchow-Dannenberg" is known for its beautiful nature, its social commitment and alternative energy production. You will like the welcome culture all around!
