In Sammatz, the roses are blooming all around, the evenings are warm and we are looking forward to a very special concert event:
On Sunday the 16th of June from 7 o’clock there will be music from Beethoven and the modern French composer Fancis Poulenc on the pontoon stage at Waldsee, presented by five internationally renowned woodwind virtuosos: Matthieu Gauci-Ancelin, flute, Maria José Garcia Zamora, bassoon, Juan Pechuan Ramirez, oboe, Daniel Gatz, clarinet and Sarah Ennouhi, horn, accompanied by Anna Kirichenko on piano.
After the first concert of this season was affected by the weather, we at Michaelshof hope, together with many music lovers, to be able to listen to the warm woodwind sounds in the enchanting environment of the Waldsee. The forecasts are favourable but in the event that it rains, our culture barn is available with its own acoustics as a substitute.
Concert tickets can be found here on the website, in the Café am Michaelshof or in the farm shop at the Archehof – and of course from 6 o’clock onwards at the box office. The entrance fee is 18 €.
We are looking forward to your visit!
House of Nature and Youth Hostel
Two new big buildings – the yellow house (officially named the House of Nature) and the blue house (our Youth Hostel) – blend harmoniously into the landscape. At the House of Nature the events program begins at the end of March with a variety of seminars on the subject of nature. Programs can be found in the café and shop, as well as on our new website. We would be pleased if many visitors attend the courses held by interesting foreign and local lecturers.
The blue house is our Youth Hostel for volunteers from all over the world, as well as for students and interns who want to work and study with us for a while. There is always a lively international life, where young people from all over the world meet.
Both houses are closed to the public. Naturally, the House of Nature is open to all participants of the courses. In summer, the life of the two houses certainly extends through the whole campus garden!
We have just renovated our playground in the late autumn; it is designed in a colourful way, just as the name suggests. A number of new toys, from the big railroad to the high slide and much more, are sure to bring joy to the hearts of all children. You often hear cheers of delight from the playground. In spring, everything will be completely finished. We’re still missing the small animal enclosure just behind the entrance. Guinea pigs, hamsters and others should soon be having a good time there. The happiness is certainly contagious for the hearts of all children.
Café am Michaelshof – the season has begun!
The Café am Michaelshof has reopened. Since the 9th of March we are open to all guests. As always, you can expect a wide selection of cakes, a varied ice cream assortment, coffee specialties, cold drinks and a savoury snack in between. Soon the garden season starts again: at this time it is especially nice to sit under the white umbrellas, surrounded by flowers, in the pleasant atmosphere of a real garden café. We look forward to your visit.
