We invite 12 volunteers to come to Mariaberg and build a bakehouse together with students with disabilities. The bakehouse will serve as an outside pizza oven for visitors of Mariaberg, as well as for training baker apprentices. Mariaberg is a complex where people with and without disabilities work and live together. Part of the complex is also an ecological farm where cattle, a few pigs, geese and therapeutic sheep are raised and different grains are cultivated. Students with disabilities from local schools regularly come working on the farm, which is located a bit outside of Mariaberg’s centre. Your job will be to build a small bakehouse on the farm, which you will be doing with and for these people. In 2020 the foundation was already prepared and concreted, so now you can start building! That includes: • bricklaying of the oven • inserting the baking chamber and the ash pan • erecting the roof with wooden rafters and roof tiles. The work will be led by a professional instructor, so no previous experience is needed. During the work you will be joined from time to time by some local people with disabilities.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Accommodation will be in a gym hall in the centre of Mariaberg. You will sleep in one big room on safety sports mats. Please bring a sleeping bag! In the gym hall you will sanitary facilities with hot showers and toilets. Right in front of the gym hall, you will find space to sit, a park, a playground and barbecue place. In the gym hall there is Wifi access. In Mariaberg, there is a laundry service where your group can bring the clothes that need to be washed. You will not prepare meals for yourselves since there is no kitchen close to your accommodation. Instead, you will eat breakfast and lunch at the local Café and restaurant of the “village” everyday! They offer a big buffet with a large choice of food, suitable for vegetarians or vegans as well. For dinner you can order food from the restaurant and eat it in the communication centre. You will also have the possibility of doing some barbecues.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Mariaberg is a part of Gammertingen, which is situated 80 km south of Stuttgart, nestled in the Swabian Alb (not Alpes!)– a beautiful mountain chain with spectacular nature. An old monastery overlooks the village from atop the surrounding hills and lush forests of the Swabian Alb. Without doubt, you will find enough to do in Mariaberg itself (barbecue, gym halls, bowling, restaurants and cafés!) but the region also offers its nature, typical Swabian villages and small towns as worthy day-trips. The locals are looking forward to the cultural exchange with you and will be happy to organise trips to Lake Constance, to the Hohenzollern Castle or to the University city of Tübingen with you.


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all volunteers need to be either fully vaccinated (2 to 3 shots of one of the following vaccines: BioNtech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or Johnson&Johnson) or recovered (date of infection must be at least 28 days old and max 90 days old).
