Ostseebad Binz – on the tables of the RUIANI Restaurant in the Private Palace Grand Hotel Binz on the Baltic Sea there is a bandam leaf in the flower vase this evening. “It is a typical Indonesian plant,” explains Henny Tirta. Together with her fellow Amanda Nabila and Virginia Chrisya, she studies at the privately funded “Swiss German University” in the Indonesian Bumi Serpong Damai “Gastronomy Management” – until the end of July the three young ladies complete an internship in Private Palace Grand Hotel Binz on the Baltic Sea.


“We cooperate closely with the ‘ Swiss German University ‘ in Indonesia and eleven other International Hotel Schools,” says Rachel Armstrong, Human Resources Manager of the Private Palace Grand Hotel. “Both sides benefit from the cooperation: the students get to know the high standards of our houses with us and we are fortunate to win very committed students.” It looks similar to Private Palace Grand Hotel Director Markus Wölflik: “The students from Indonesia are highly motivated and also give our house an international flair.”


This could even taste the guests of the five-star house last. Together with chef Heiko Philipp, the young women conjured up a traditional Indonesian dish of beef – called “Rendang”. “This was very good for the guests – the three students designed extra table cards for this evening, on which they explained their dishes to our guests,” says Heiko Philipp.


The three young ladies who all come from Jakarta smile. “This was a great evening,” says Virginia Chrisya, who appreciates Binz above all “The beach, the atmosphere in the hotel and the very nice staff”.


Whether you and your fellow to complete another study internship at the Private Palace Grand Hotel is still available. “We would definitely like to,” says Amanda Nabila.


That’s what Birte Löhr likes to hear. The General Director of the Private Palace Hotels in Binz, which includes the Rugard & Arkona Strandhotels, is already looking forward. “Our company has always been very international – 22 nationalities work in our homes.”


There are still limited positions available for the coming training period. “We are looking for the best candidates both in Germany and the world,” says Birte Löhr, who contradicts a prejudice: “It is often said that the gastronomy is based on international employees, since they would have less money than German employees. That’s definitely not true. The minimum wage must be adhered to, regardless of the nationality of the employee. ”


For the coming training year, which starts on 1st September, the Private Palace Hotels in Binz on the island of Rügen still offer jobs for the occupations Hotelkaufmann/Hotelkauffrau, Koch/Köchin and Hotelfachmann/Hotelfachfrau
