Become a volunteer at the Shoe Quarter

The Shoe Quarter cannot do without the efforts of volunteers in any department. Therefore, in our museum you can do what you are good at! There is room for your own input and you decide when and how often you want to work. The current group of volunteers is looking for new colleagues, people who share their pride and enthusiasm for the Schoenenkwartier and want to contribute to the museum.

There is a wide variety of activities: welcoming guests, working in the café, preparing lunches, giving guided tours to adults or schoolchildren, assisting in the manufacturing labs or workshops, helping "behind the scenes", in short: there is something for everyone! Of course, you will be well prepared for your task.

Does that shoe fit you? Then step into it!
