Our small special school in the neighbouring village of Wietzetze is officially entering its second year – after opening in February 2020, this is now the first ‘real’ school year.
Every morning at a quarter to eight, children from our Peronnik child and youth welfare centre and the first “external” pupils arrive at the school, which is set up in a beautiful old farm house, and can look forward to lessons tailored to their needs.
Selma Lagerlöf School – named after the Nobel Prize winning author of ‘Nils Holgersson’, who was herself a teacher – is a special school for emotional & social development (in Germany: Förderbedarf E/S) and still accepts pupils.

The Sammatz goats are having babies right now
• Stop by and enjoy the wonderful sight of the little ones. The kids jump lively through the stable and climb goat style on everything that comes in their way. For example the mummy … 🙃
The Thuringian Forest Goats are an old breed of domestic animals, which is on the Red List of the GEH (Society for the Preservation of Old and Endangered Domestic Animal Breeds). At the open stables of our Arche-Farm you can get very close to them.
As a “real” farm with milk processing we are also an adventure farm for young and old, because humans and animals have a long common history and should know and like each other well. There must be a reason why your heart can so open up when you just watch our farm animals living their lives.
With a lot of respect for the great animals we still have a lot of things to do together!
Roses in full bloom
– every instant anew they enchant us with their abundance, their colours and scents. These days wandering through the Sammatz Gardens is like wading through a sea of flowers and roses.
The rose touches the human soul in a special way – for instance when it is ‘worth a thousand words’ whenever a lover hands it over to the loved one. The roses, too, which radiate their colours in the gardens now tell us more than we’d be able to express verbally.
A special time of the year – visit us, look and smell for yourselves! (-;
• Until further notice events are still cancelled. However provisional bookings are possible any time.
It depends on the future regulations issued by the government of Lower Saxony whether seminars and other events can take place again.
We will promptly inform you of any changes and will then tell you how we shall proceed with our seminars in the House of Nature, our experience days at Michaelshof and the concerts at the Waldsee.
Important: You’re welcome to book any future event. We will treat your booking as provisional. In case the event will not take place your payment will be returned immediately.
