Important information about volunteering in: Austria
If you are from outside the EU and planning to visit Austria solely as a volunteer and not as a tourist you will need the correct visa. To find out more information you need to contact the embassy in your home country before travelling.
Meaning of the colours:
Possibly volunteers needed
By default (toggle switch to the left) hosts who have both yellow AND green indicated for the months
you have selected will be shown. If you move the toggle to the right ONLY hosts who have indicated
green will be shown.
Meaning of this:
By default (toggle switch to the left) will show hosts who have ANY of the months you have chosen
marked as available. This means that some of the months might be marked red (no availability.) If
you need to see ALL of the months you have selected as available move the toggle to the right.
Our guestroom is momentarily free for the month of September and yearning for engaged workawayer(s) with a tendency to lots of work, good food and an active lifestyle!
René (42, economist in a think tank in Vienna), Elke (35, veterinarian for swine & poultry), Raphael (4, unemployed philosopher) and Ilja (2, baby rebel) are the happy inhabitants of a small and very old farm on the edges of the Dunkelsteinerwald (dark stone forest) in the province of Niederösterreich near Vienna. Our horses Mia (OneEye), old Flora and two original English Welsh pony moms with their kids Humphrey & Ruby (born this May) who will be the basis of our Welsh pony stud, a flock of chickens, a herd of turkeys, seven cats and two undeniably charming Dalmatian Dogs (Nathan The White & Nervous Nelly) make our home quite lively (not to forget the bird families, hedgehogs and other little critters that made our inner courtyard their homes).
Coming originally from Vienna, which both of us dearly love, we can provide you with good recommendations on where to go and what to see - sightseeing, museums, going out to nice cafés and bars, to the theater and of course you can join René to games of SK Rapid Wien, if you like football. The city is only a 10 min car and a 25 min train ride from our tiny village.
For those wanting to take short trips to the surrounding area (E.g.: the famous region of Wachau at the river Danube) to trek/cycle from winery to winery, to old castles on the hills alongside the river or just visit gorgeous towns like Krems and Dürnstein by foot, we can provide you with useful maps, tips and mountainbikes.
And if you like spending time strolling/running over fields and meadows or take a mountain bike up the wooded hills behind our farm, you'll love it here. We also just finished building a small gym for body weight training. We might just join you on a few excursions, as we are very enthusiastic about those pleasant things in life. At least as long as Raphael and Ilja let us...
We grow our own fruits, veggies and meat and have a keen interest in permaculture and enhancing our grade of self-sufficiency. Thus, we've built the horse, cow and chicken stables ourselves and are continuously renovating and upgrading the farm, therefore the range of work needed (see below), is wide and of course also depends on the interest of the helper.
After a busy day. both of us like to spend an evening cooking with/for friends and having lively discussions about interesting topics like politics, economics, music, life and whatever comes to our mind.
Please consider us as your hosts of choice only if you really are energetic adults, that take initiative, are reliable and willing to join the family rhythm (and don't smoke)! We'd also love to hear your ideas on tackling things, since we are far from being real farmers, yet...
