Support a Franconian village in the organization of their annual wine festival (“Weinfest”)! In one part of this workcamp, you will help the community of the village of Tauberzell in the organisation of their 2020 festival. This includes setting up the tents and stalls, running different shifts during the festival as well as dismantling the whole structure again in the end. Another task for your group will be to work together with a local association in maintaining and preserving the natural landscape surrounding the village.
You will be accommodated in the villages’ old inn. In this vacant house there are several rooms you can use for sleeping, as well as a kitchen and bathrooms. The accommodation is picturesque, but quite basic and there is no WiFi available. Please bring your own sleeping bag!
The village of Tauberzell is part of the community of Adelshofen in the southern German region of Franconia. The region is known for its wine, a rich tradition of beer brewing and other local culinary specialities. Nature lovers can find several hiking trails in the beautiful surrounding landscape. Rothenburg ob der Tauber, well known for its well-preserved medieval old town, is just 10km from Tauberzell. The cities of Nuremberg and Bamberg are not too far away either and might be visited on weekends.
The Franconian village of Tauberzell is hosting a group of international volunteers for the second time this year. From June 10th until June 14th, the village will organize a wine festival to celebrate the local tradition of wine making. Each year, around 10,000 visitors come to the festival, so the community is happy to have some supporting hands in setting up and running the festival. The local youth is very much involved in the running of this big event and is looking forward to introduce you to local traditions and festivities.
