Persbytery gardens, cemetries and a former Stasi-Bunker
The local Protestant community of Sommerfeld, which is located in the eastern part of Leipzig, has invited us to into their pilgrim guesthouse. We will do landscaping work in the persbytery gardens and on the cemetery. We will also spend several days helping with repairs and conservation work on the grounds of a former “Stasi-Bunker”, which was built as the regional headquarters of the Leipzig secret service. We will be working for about 5-6 hours per day, for example from 8.00 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. Of course there will be breaks in between.

In our leisure time, we can visit Leipzig, go swimming nearby or make trips to sights of interest. We will not only do excursions, but also do group activities depending on your interests and your ideas. We encourage you to bring along games, songs, music, dances, workshops, topics and pictures. We are looking forward to your ideas for our spare time and for group activities. With your input our afternoons and evenings will be a great experience for all of us.
