The numerous historical castles and parks in the Berlin-Brandenburg region are managed and preserved by the Prussian Castle and Garden Foundation. The town of Potsdam, with its historical assets (such as the Sanssouci Castle and its grounds) is one of the central points of this cultural landscape, which has been developing for over 300 years. You will be involved in the extensive gardening work in the Park Sanssouci and can get a strong insight into this diverse field of work. In the Charlottenhof Park, which was created in 1883 by P. J. Lenné, you will help to maintain paths, flowerbeds and lawns in order to sustain the garden’s current beauty. Through your different contributions in the parks, you will learn about the many diverse aspects of garden and park facilities. There is an additional administration fee of 50 € for participants who are not from Germany.
You will be staying in a school with the possibility of showering at the nearby sports pitch.
The group will prepare and cook meals together.
Since you’ll be so close to the region’s capitals, Potsdam and Berlin, you’ll have many opportunities during your free time to visit the numerous tourist and natural hotspots, such as the many lakes and forests around. For the duration of the camp you will receive a travel ticket which is valid for all public transport around Potsdam.
