Update 8.4.2021: Due to the current pandemic restrictions, we have postponed our café opening to 29 April.
The Café at Michaelshof is expected to open on 29 April 2021
We are pleased to announce that – as far as the situation will continue to allow – we will open the outdoor area of the café to our guests on 29 April.
When the white parasols shine over the inviting wicker tables and chairs, visitors to the gardens and the Arche-Hof will once again be able to comfortably fortify themselves with coffee and cake, hearty home-made food or even the popular ice cream. Of course, as before: everything organic and everything delicious. And for us that means: wherever possible, always in Demeter quality.
See you soon at the Café am Michaelshof!
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!
On the weekend and to-go: Since Nov 16th we have new opening hours in the Café am Michaelshof
Dear customers! On Monday, 16th of November, we have readjusted the opening hours of the Café am Michaelshof again.

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
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
• The days are becoming shorter, autumn is entering our gardens – and in Café & Hofladen – our farm shop – we have new opening hours! Ab sofort sind wir zu den folgenden Zeiten für euch da:
