Werk

Carpentry – Restoration and Conservation works on the roofs of Historical Buildings
Medieval constructions and architectural relics from this period are still standing tall overlooking the Thuringian landscape. However some of the structures are in dire need of some restoration work, especially the large hall with a history dating back to 1574. The volunteers will get a chance to participate in preserving these historical structures working this year on the roofs. The works will be led by a master of carpentry who has additional education as “Restorer in Handicraft”. Within the framework of the educational part other historic roof constructions in the village and the region – in the manor house itself, the village church and in the town nearby – will be studied and discussed.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

ACCOMODATION
In Lohra castle: Shared rooms with 2 - 5 beds in 3 guest houses, warm shower (limited hot water), 1 camp kitchen (cold water), coal-burning stoves.

FOOD (also to be used in other texts)
The meals will be prepared together as they are part of the community life, what means that every participant will be responsible for the meal at least once during its stay. So it would be very nice if the participants could bring typical recipes from home in order to introduce each other to the preparation of food from all over the world.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Lohra Castle is situated in the heart of Germany in Northern Thuringia. The castle, which is surrounded by a scenic hilly landscape, is located on the edge of a nature reserve area. Being one of the largest castles in Thuringia, the history of the castle Lohra begins in the Middle Age. The castle is more than 1,000 years old. Today, it includes twenty buildings from different times: medieval fortifications, remnants of a tower from the 11th century, a Romanesque chapel, a manor house from the Renaissance period as well as stables and granaries from the 19th and the early 20th centuries.
The ensemble is situated in the centre of a beautiful forest. For years Lohra Castle was vacant. In the 1990s Open Houses started to restore the castle and to revive it by cultural activities. Since then, a large number of Workcamps, Building Weeks, exhibitions, concerts and other activities with international participants took place in the castle.

LEISURE TIME
Lohra Castle is situated on a hill surrounded by forest area near a small villages in rural Thuringia, so the participants should not expect busy places and normal city activities for the leisure time during the working days. Small trips in walking distance are possible in the afternoon. On the weekends it is possible to organise an excursion to nearby cities or to have other leisure activities.

Usually average temperatures in Germany during the summer time are about 20º C to 30º C; during the night it will get colder. It is possible that there may be three weeks of non-stop sunshine, but every day rain is not impossible either. In September and October it's about 8º C to 18º C.
