We invite 8 volunteers to come to Grimburg Castle this spring to live and work in the medieval castle and support a team of local volunteers at a small festival.
Grimburg Castle was built around the year 1190 and has been destroyed and reconstructed several times. Today, volunteers of a local heritage association take care of the castle and organise a small festival there each year. Since this is a lot of work they can really use your help. So every spring, a group of international volunteers meets at the castle to support the renovation and the festival work.
Continue the tradition, join this workcamp and…
• …support the Grimburg Castle festival on May 18th: 500 to 1000 visitors come to the castle’s spring festival each year. Together with the local volunteers you will set up a tent and benches for visitors, sell food and drinks, organise small games for children and wash up dishes. Of course, you will also celebrate together with all the volunteers and visitors.
• …work on the castle’s area: Before and after the festival, you will cut bushes and grass, clean the stone walls, plant and weed in the historic herb garden or clean the exhibition in the castle’s and witches museum. The tasks for each day will depend on the weather conditions.

You will live in one of the castle’s towers and feel like a former inhabitant of this medieval place. At night you will have the castle to yourselves, so you can sit around a campfire, listen to music, share food and enjoy living in nature. The conditions are basic but very cosy; you will sleep in bunk beds on the first floor. Please bring a sleeping bag. On the ground floor of the tower, you will have a space to cook and eat. If the weather is fine, you will have meals mainly outside. Toilets and a shower are within 50m. There is electricity but no running water in the tower itself. Please be aware that, just like in medieval times, you do not have an internet connection at Grimburg Castle. As usual in old buildings some animals might visit you, last year there was a very curious dormouse (not dangerous at all!).

Grimburg Castle is surrounded by nature, overlooking the forests and valleys. In your free time you can go for a walk or a hike, enjoy the spring outside or make a campfire at night. Grimburg Castle is quite isolated. The next village is not far, but you will find the closest shops 10km away (in a town called Hermeskeil). So, volunteers interested in outdorr activities are especially welcome. But even though it is isolated, in this workcamp you will meet local people, share time with them and get to know the area. You can also visit Trier, the oldest German city, on an excursion day. In Trier, you will find many historical sites from the Roman period. Since it is a university town, there are also many clubs, shops and events.

Grimburg Castle was a ruin for centuries until in 1978, when a group of local volunteers formed an association and started reconstructing the medieval castle, including the impressive castle tower. Still today, they continue with the renovation work. In the past years, the association has been trying to increase the accessibility and attractiveness of this unique site. Many hikers visit the castle during the spring and summer season each year. People also come here for youth activities, weddings, historic markets and knights’ festivals.
Apply now to support the local heritage association and join this year’s workcamp at Grimburg Castle.
