A medieval small town expects us – We work together, we experience nice things and find friends
Kyritz is a medieval small town located in Brandenburg. Surrounded by many lakes, the environment offers many opportunities for recreational activities. Apart from that Kyritz is a Hanseatic city and worth to have a look.  Additionally a pilgrimage route between Berlin and Bad Wilsnack passes through Kyritz and invites us to follow a short distance.

The Protestant Parish Kyritz is looking forward to be supported by volunteers to renew and remodel the graveyard. The graveyard  is situated in landscaped grounds und will be transformed into an open forest graveyard. Participants will work for six hours per day, e.g. from 8 am to 2 pm, but of course there will be breaks, too.

In our shared free time we will go swimming and boating. Trips to Berlin or Hamburg are also planned. We will not only do excursions, but also do group activities depending on your interests and your ideas. We are happy if you bring with you games, songs, music, dances, workshops, topics and pictures. We are looking forward to your ideas for our free time and group activities. With your engagement our afternoons and evenings will be a great experience for all of us.
The accommodation is placed in the Parish Hall. Therefore you need a sleeping pad and a sleeping bag /a blanket.
