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 of Kyritz is pleased about the support in maintaining the park-like cemetery. Work is also to be carried out on the area around the parish hall and a shed is to be renovated. In cooperation with the local history association, work is being done on a historical project.

The working hours are between 8am – 2pm. Of course, breaks are also planned. In good weather the lake invites you to go boating or swimming. A well-developed rail network makes excursions to Berlin, the surrounding area and the Baltic Sea possible. Accommodation is in the community centre and on the grounds of the community centre. You will need to bring a sleeping mat and a sleeping bag. Sleeping is in tents.

Apart from the excursions we plan group activities, which depend on your interests and which you help to create, e.g. games, songs, music, dances, workshops, themes, photos.
