26.07. - 09.08.2020


12 Freiwillige inkl. einer Campleitung


The town of Heilsbronn has been hosting workcamps for 12 years already and is looking forward to welcoming another international group of volunteers this summer. The local community is a big fan of workcamps and international volunteering and has introduced other neighbouring cities to the workcamp idea as well. In this year’s project, several construction and environmental tasks await you in and around this beautiful town in Bavaria. Your support will help the community to maintain the green areas in the town and foster environmental education opportunities (SDG 11 sustainable communities).



In one part of the project, you will help with the maintenance of the Vita Parcours fitness trail. Your task will mainly be to clear the trail of over-grown plants. Another part of the work is to help set up gardening spaces in the “Naturlehrgarten”, a small park that explains environmental issues to visitors. In this park you might plant herbs and trees as well as set up new paths. There will also be cleaning and construction work to do for you along the famous St. James' Way and other green areas in the town.


You will be accommodated in the local youth club called “JUZ”. The building includes a kitchen and all necessary facilities. Please bring a sleeping bag! The local youth who usually visit the club are looking forward to welcoming you and getting to know the international volunteers.


Heilsbronn with its 9300 inhabitants is located in the idyllic Bavarian region called „Franken“(Franconia). The town lies along a path known as the “Way of St. James” or “Camino de Santiago”. For this reason, the town is frequently visited by tourists as well as pilgrims. Apart from the traditional, half-timbered houses the town has a couple of unique sites, such as the Romanesque monastery and the local cathedral. A guided tour might be organised for you. Besides, the town can arrange free entrance to the outdoor swimming pool for the group. Nature-lovers can find several hiking trails in the beautiful surrounding landscape. The worth-seeing cities of Nuremberg, Bamberg and Rothenburg ob der Tauber are not too far away and might be visited on weekends.
