Betzenstein und Plech

Unterstütze die Gemeinden Betzenstein und Plech bei Verschönerungs- und Umweltmaßnahmen!




12 Freiwillige inkl. Campleitung (WICHTIG: Als Campleitung benötigst du einen Führerschein und solltest es dir zutrauen, einen 9-Sitzer zu fahren.)


Betzenstein, a small Franconian town, has been inviting international workcamps into their community since 2010. Now, for the third time, they are organizing a workcamp together with the neighbouring town of Plech. Various tasks await you in this project, since your work-time will be split evenly between Betzenstein and Plech. By participating in this project, you are supporting the sustainable development of these communities and help protect the environment (UN SDG 11 sustainable communities and SDG 15 Life on Land).


There are lots of different tasks awaiting you in both Betzenstein and Plech: In Betzenstein you will be working mostly on creative and ecological tasks which will have a sustainable impact on the town, such as working on environmental protection, playgrounds, plantings and embellishments of the town. In Plech, you will help to build and decorate new benches to accommodate citizens and visitors. You will also plaster the ground in front of the kindergarten with new stones in order to create a space where the children can park their bikes and you will work on the entry area of the gym that you will be sleeping in. In addition, you are going to maintain the biotope which is also situated near the Kindergarten. Here you can build flower beds and plant flowers in them.


The group will be accommodated in the sports hall of Plech. Here you will be able to shower, use the sanitary facilities etc. and change in separated dressing rooms. You will sleep softly on the gym mats which are provided for you, but you will need to bring your own sleeping bag. Your group will also have the possibility to cook. There is a bakery inside the village and the supermarket is reachable by foot (1,2km). From the accommodation you can easily reach all of Plech by foot; for the tasks avaiting you in Betzenstein, transport will be provided.


The Bavarian region in which Betzenstein and Plech are located is called “Little Switzerland” for a reason: Its beautiful surroundings invite you to various adventures and hiking trips in the region. There are all kinds of trails and possibilities to experience the unique nature. On the weekends, there are busses to nearby cities like Nuremberg or Pegnitz. Your hosts will be happy to help you plan activities such as exploring the local cave system, testing your bravery in the climbing garden or simply visiting the camera museum. You will be allowed to use the local swimming pool for free.
