Kulturinsel Einsiedel

Neißeaue, Saxony, Germany

Aren't we all looking for happiness? Most of us, probably. In the memories it is often the time of childhood that we consider to be carefree and happy. But the way back to childhood is blocked. For real? There is a place that is like a portal to that longing time: The Secret World of Turisede.

The Turiseder lived a thousand years ago in the Neisse meadows as the happiest people under the sun. They had kept their children's hearts, resolved their disputes with games and chose children as kings. A thousand years ago, that was a long time ago and the old Turiseder were long forgotten, one could answer that. But that's not true. Because the people of the Neisseau are not completely forgotten. Her heritage is explored and preserved in the Secret World of Turisede. A trip there is like a little adventure in between, without having to travel halfway around the world.

Already at the west portal, the originally rebuilt entrance gate Turisedes, visitors get their personal lucky number, with which they can immerse themselves in the world of the legendary people. The journey may go through the hundreds of meters of underground labyrinths. The adventurers encounter mysterious beings like the Turehser, who are considered ancestors of deer and rabbit here. Quirky houses grow in the trees, where you can spend the night wonderfully.

In general, all the buildings here are constructed as if the mythical ancestors themselves had wielded the ax. A forgotten world is brought back to life and the cheerful serenity of the old people is transferred to the visitors, making their hearts beat unexpectedly in the cheerful rhythm of Turisees.

Many families are there when in spring, after the ritual of the Neisse meadows, flower bulbs are planted in over a hundred mystical oracle places. The wishes of the families are also fulfilled, as the plantlets in colorful blossoms fulfill throughout the year. So it is handed down from ancient times. And in autumn everyone meets again to build problem goblins together. You can then put all your needs under them before they are burned in a mighty fire. Many secrets can also be discovered beyond the Neisse. Here is the summer house of the first tourism researcher Graf Welldone. On his trail, particularly brave people can try to discover the mystical treasure of the legendary floodplain dwellers.

And then we have to tell you about the Krönum, the grandiose dinner show that shows legends from the early days of the Neisse people almost every day. What the Turiseder did at the Tabularasum, the most mysterious of their festivals, is not known. Sure, there was an abundance of delicious dishes and it was definitely loud and cheerful. But nobody knows exactly what happened. Not yet. Curious researchers, fun-loving families and all kinds of adventure seekers can now close this knowledge gap in the Krönum and take a trip back in time to the happiest era of the Neißeauen. But be careful: tickled palates, strained diaphragms and increased blood pressure cannot be completely ruled out! And lazing around, the spectacular wellness facility in a turquoise style and also ... Oh. There is definitely not enough space at this point.

Kind suggestion: Go there yourself and see with your own eyes. Ultimately, this has a decisive advantage over every report: It probably makes you happy.

ArchitectureThe basic material of the artistic design is wood. All tree houses, castles and other accommodations were developed and built by the artistic wood design Bergmann GmbH - specialists for large, crazy things made of wood - themselves, mainly raw materials from the region were used. Old rubber conveyor belts from the surrounding lignite mine were also used, so that they did not have to be scrapped in this way.

FoodForest and meadow dishes have also recently been served on the cultural island. Most comes from regional providers.

There are always activities on the cultural island that benefit children in particular, such as the promotion of kindergartens and free admission for children. A special focus is on promoting the Polish neighboring village of Bielawa Dolna to help it get on its feet economically. Terrain improvements are being organized for the village to make it a tourist attraction. International gathering of Poles and Germans is also a concern. It is reflected in the employees and the amount of joint celebrations and events, as well as in the holiday camps.

EnvironmentDealing with the natural basic material wood is very careful. Of course, garbage is separated on the entire island. ,
