Help the community of Leibertingen make their village even more beautiful, using ecologically friendly methods! The municipality of Leibertingen needs your help on two different projects, which will both benefit their population and respect the environment. • The first project will be about paving the alleys, in one of Leibertingen’s four cemeteries. Indeed, in each district of Leibertingen, there is a cemetery and in all but one of them, the alleys are paved with cobblestones. Now it is time to compensate this, by paving the alleys of the fourth cemetery. Doing so, you will use an eco-friendly type of cobblestone, which lets the grass grow around it. In addition, you will put up two wooden banks, where visitors can sit. Your work will contribute to the lives of the district’s inhabitants, by enhancing this important place. • The second project will be about bringing flowers to Leibertingen! Your job will be to convert public grass strips all around the village into flower beds. This will have many advantages: First, it will make the village more colorful, second it will require less water and third, the native wildlife like butterflies, bees or hedgehogs will be happy! The work will be led by a professional instructor, so no previous experience is needed. You will work around 30 hours per week and your group will commonly decide on how to spend your free time.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

Your group will stay in the building of the aviation club in Leibertingen. From there to the work place, it takes about 5 to 10 minutes on foot. You will sleep in shared rooms with single beds. Pillows and covers are provided but please bring your own bedsheets (ie: pillow case, fitted sheet and comforter cover in size 90x190cm)! In the building there is an equipped kitchen, several bathrooms with showers and several toilets. You will also be able to enjoy the large outside area around the building. Your group of volunteers will be responsible for grocery shopping and cooking together. The food will be bought with the camp budget and everybody will take turns for cooking, washing the dishes and cleaning. In order to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, we encourage volunteers to reduce meat and try more sustainable dishes.

Locatie en vrije tijd

Leibertingen is a village of about 2,100 inhabitants, nested in the the “Upper Danube Nature Park” (Naturpark Obere Donau). It is located directly over the Danube valley, about 600m to 870m above sea level, and very close to the old mountain chain of the Swabian Alb. Coming to Leibertingen, you can expect spectacular scenery and wonderful hikes through forests, hills, rocks and along the Danube river. On the outskirts of the village you can visit the Wildenstein Castle, which overlooks the Danube valley. In the castle, there is one of the oldest youth hostels in Germany! During the weekend, you might go on excursions to the famous Hohenzollern Castle, to the city of Sigmaringen which also has a beautiful castle or to Lake Constance.


In the municipality of Leibertingen there are four different districts: Altheim, Kreenheinstetten, Leibertingen and Thalheim. You will most probably get to know them all during your stay. In the past, there has already been a workcamp in Leibertingen, working on a pedagogical train in the forest. This year, the inhabitants are looking forward to greeting international volunteers again! Your work will satisfy needs, which have been expressed to the municipality. Also, they are looking forward to introduce you to their beautiful region.


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all volunteers need to be either fully vaccinated (3 shots of one of the vaccines recognized by the World Health Organisation: BioNtech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson&Johnson, Serum Institute of India, Novavax, CanSino, Bharat BioTech, Sinopharm, Sinovac) OR 2 shots of the vaccine and one infection after that OR recovered (date of infection must be at least 28 days old and max 90 days old).


As it can already be quite cold in Leibertingen in October, be sure to bring warm clothes, warm shoes and raingear!
