Open/Closed. Michaelshof in lockdown times

The Café at Michaelshof is closed until 14 March. Most recently, we still provided refreshments for determined garden visitors at weekends and ‘to go’. Now we are taking a break. In two months – when crocuses, hyacinths and other early bloomers populate the gardens again and the health situation has hopefully eased a bit – we will be back in the café. In the meantime, we are already working on new cakes!

The farm shop has a clear hygiene concept and is still open during regular opening hours. (Mon – Fri 9:30 to 12 am and 3 pm to 6:30 pm, Sat & Sun 10:00 to 1 pm and 2 pm to 6:30 pm). We also offer delivery service and pre-orders – feel free to ask Caro on 0170/9214385 how this works!

The Arche-Hof farm is open all day as a place to experience sustainable organic farming and species-appropriate animal husbandry, as long as current regulations allow you to visit. Just like the Gardens at Michaelshof, which on some days now have their own special winter magic and here and there are already heralding spring with the first snowdrops!

Michaelshof Onlineshop in a new design

Six weeks ago we opened our community’s online shop. Based on the experience we have since gained we have done a relaunch of the entire website and improved many details. We have also reduced the assortment of our goods. For now we will fully focus on Michaelshof goods, ranging from yummy bread and cheese to our beautiful postcard collections: many great products which are available online only in this shop.

We like the relaunch a lot, now it’s even more fun to go on a virtual Michaelshof shopping tour. What is your opinion? Have a look for yourselves and check the results here! (German only)

Event Season 2020 Terminated

Haus der Natur am Michaelshof Sammatz

Dear visitors and friends!

Due to the current situation no more events will happen in 2020.

Like all hosts and promoters we look back on a year full of canceled events. However, a few beautiful concerts at lake Waldsee and successful seminars like for instance the weekend on mushrooms in October leave our visitors and us with precious memories.

We are happy that we were able to carry on with our biological and environmental research projects without restriction.

We are looking forward to present our many event ideas centered around the Arche-Hof farm, the community and the marvellous worlds of plants and animals we wanted to share with you in 2020 again next year.

We hope that from March on it will be possible to host seminars and events again. You are all invited! We will display the programme soon on this website soon.

So – let’s knock on wood: See you next year!
Your event team

Major Press Coverage

• Surprise: An attentive Spiegel Online reader has discovered an article with travel tips for autumn, which begins with an enthusiastic recommendation of Michaelshof: “If you ask Elisabeth Frenz where the perfect place is to end the summer on the Elbe, the Hamburg native immediately has a tip ready: “At Michaelshof Sammatz, a meeting place in Wendland that is more of a village than a farm. I could spend days here – at any time of the year”. Two paragraphs tell of the place with such verve that one really feels like going there.

We are very happy about the great appreciation!

At the beginning of August there was an article in the HAZ (Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung) with the inviting title “The Michaelshof in Wendland is a paradise and costs no entrance fee”, which has inspired many people to visit us.

We know, of course, that Sammatz is imperfect at every turn and in need of improvement (therefore far from being a paradise). But we think that this refers to a certain atmosphere in nature and around the place, which also pleases us ourselves. If others experience this in a similar way – wonderful!
