Potato lovers wanted for the potato hotel

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe are a community of potato lovers, situated in Wendland in he east of the Lüneburger Heide in Lower Saxony. The region is in the north of Germany from where you can easily go to Berlin, Hamburg, and Hannover (about two hours).
    Our passion is cultivating potatoes from all over the world, cooking tasty dishes and serving them to our guests.
    Besides, we publish the best recipes in our internet blog. We run the one and only potato Hotel and restaurant in Germany and need help with any tasks related to it.

    You can improve your German language during your stay in our hotel and while working with us. Everyone who wants to have a career in this field of work should have experience in a foreign country and this is what we offer.

    All of our workawayers have made a book together, where you can find lots of ideas of what you can do during your free time (cycling and hiking tours, bus trips, places to see). This book is to be completed by everyone who stays with us.

    We offer bicycles to go to the next town (Lüchow, 4kms) or even further. There are always possibilities to organize a car ride to Lüchow, sometimes also to Dannenberg, Hitzacker or Lüneburg. All of these towns have picturesque medieval citycentres and are worth visiting. The river Elbe is also near, part of the former German-German border and worth visiting for all those who are interested in the history of Germany.
