Come on a journey into the magical world of the culture island - Kulturinsel Einsiedel!
Surrounded by deep forests and sunny meadows - at the most Eastern point of Germany - lays an uncommon (maybe a bit crazy) Funpark without rides but with real adventures.
A park full of green-ringed adventure wilderness with over 500m long secret tunnels, houses in the trees, an enchanted castle, as well as animals from all around the world. Here you can let your mind wander and relax. Or you crawl, climb, explore, learn, experience and try out. An "island", where myths and stories from the people of Turisede await you on every corner. Their spirits create a living history and experimental archeology on the island. In this huge open-air museum one can follow the traces of the almost forgotten tribe.
It's a place for body and soul, a place where you may meet your inner child - in case you are usually mistaken as an adult.
More than a thousand years ago, a Slavic high culture, which called itself the PEOPLE OF TURISEDIA, lived in the meadows of the river Neisse. At the same spot today their history is blossoming to new life! For here, in the adventurous leisure park Kulturinsel Einsiedel, one can not only let the mind stray away, but also look for the traces to the history of the Turisedians. With the help of the ancient spirits of Turisedia we created an open-air research project that reconstructs the art, culture and nature of this almost forgotten people.
At this magical and historical location, young and old find fascinating discovery worlds, underground secret passageways, tree houses, climbable architectures, treetop walks, funky animals, archaic wellness facilities, wild water games, numerous festivals and events as well as the Turisedian ceremonial hall "The Krönum". All of these prove how turbulent it must have been during the times of the people of Turisedia.
All this can hardly be experienced in a single day. Therefore it is a good thing that many of the unique tree houses also invite you to an adventurous overnight stay.
The cultural island - Kulturinsel Einsiedel - is constantly changing and growing until the former empire of Turisedia is completely reconstructed. Even beyond the river Neisse, in the Polish adventure village Bielawa Dolna, you can find new and unique attractions, like the EscapeRoom in the View-Cafe.
Here you will find all the information about the leisure park itself and its deep history.

The cultural island Kulturinsel Einsiedel is a labyrinth in which the secrets of a lost culture are hidden at every corner. A world for explorers, adventurers and anyway for the whole family!
The people of Turisedia were governed by the childish king, they possessed a mysterious source of energy, and developed numerous techniques that made Turisedia a high culture a 1000 years ago. Take a look at the history and discover the secrets of Turisedia in the museum Historum.
Lately it seems some inexplicable sightings were made in the midth of the adventure wilderness. We are still investigating if there's any truth to these rumors. Anyways, it's for sure that the nights on Kulturinsel Einsiedel are more magical than ever before.
After long researches it was possible, to breed the animals of Turisedia. They were regarded as companions, offered oracle-like predictions for weather and harvest, and often had an aesthetic significance.
On the hottest days the Turisedians stayed in the splashy valley of the water demons. Originally, this place originated out of their leaking water system.
Bowling - okay. Billard - alright. But way better is the Bowling-Billard on Kulturinsel Einsiedel: Try to hit all the bowling-pins while hitting the cushion. A game for all those who never get enough of harder and harder challenges. You only have to get the key at the TreeTrunk Restaurant and clean up afterwards.
The wild East is calling! Walk from the adventure park Kulturinsel Einsiedel over the swimming bridge above the river Neisse into the exciting neighboring world. There you will find the adventure village Bielawa Dolna.
Deep down into the earth leads a network of secret passages. The whole land of Turisedia must have been been undermined. The goal was to confuse enemies and menacing animals. The children of Turisedia knew how to use these tunnels as a shortcut between two exciting play areas. Be careful! In some tunnels you can still find the ancient spirits of the ancestors!

On the Kulturinsel Einsiedel you will only get really "hot" at the wellness-area "Faulenzum" - meaning "Lazynarum". Here you bath above the wood fire in "cannibal cauldrons" under the trees. If the bathroom is not enough, the doors to the hot oven of the cannibals - the sauna - are open.

The Kulturinsel Einsiedel is linked to the Oder-Neisse cycle path. Furthermore it is also a good starting point for various cycling routes, which wind through wonderful landscapes in Germany and Poland. It is also worthwhile to take family trips by bike to other tourist attractions in the surrounding area.
Give your feet a break and take a ride in our cozy Ciuchcia train through the neighboring world of Poland! It will be even more exciting if you combine the train ride with a rafting trip on the river Neisse.
Food & Drink
The ancient people of Turisedia are omnipresent on the Kulturinsel Einsiedel. This is especially true for the
Culinary traditions. The most surprising, original and delicious tastes of the traditional dishes, such as matie (fish) on the rod, partridge on the spit or unusual vegetarian dishes from the forest and meadows of the region, can be found in the tree trunk restaurant, in the fire water play - restaurant with the legendary ball ordering system, in the Tree house Café, at the temple of fire - where you can also cook your sausage over the bonfire -, at the floating Neiße Café or in the view-café in the Polish village Bielawa Dolna.
Coronation of all culinary delights is the dinner show in the Krönum - with theater and variety while feasting on delicious food.
Many trunks, one location and a peerless atmosphere. In this restaurant you will find delicious food àla carte. The "green" menue offers an exquisite selection of meals from the meadows and forests of our surroundngs. The Tree Trunk Restaurant opens the whole year - during high-season as well as in winter.
Our Dinnershow seduces all sences. One whole evening it is possible to try all the creations of turisedian cuisine - for vegetarians and carnivores - and in between our artists will enchant you. It's a must see attraction!
This is real adventure gastronomy. Sitting around crackling fire places or rentable grills you can grill appetizing skewers. A special highlight: Catch yourself a trout! The kitchen staff helps preparing it. In the evening the gastronomy trolls also serve those who relax in the cannibal kettles in the turisedian Spa "Faulenzum" entspannen.
Surrounded by european pines the Tree House Café with its cozy fireplace and wild suites offers some rest. Those who don't want to linger and continue their explorations through the park or those who are on a long biking trip may also just enjoy the waffle with ice cream.
In the realm of the Fire Temple Turisedians already ate in the circle of their families and friends in front of the fire places between big sandstone blocks. This place is still appropriate for larger groups who want to eat fast and economically priced or munch their bread on a stick or their saussage while having a great conversation in front of a burning fire.
The Neißecafé floats on Neisse River and attracts guests from both sides of the waterfilled border. It's no wonder since a similar place can't be found that easily. So we call everyone lucky who spends his time with a hot cup of coffee, flavoured lemonade, beer, cake, sandwiches or grilled food. Extraordinarily yummy: The trout that can be fished by yourself.
True discoverers will be well pleased in the so called Turius' Corner (Turiuswinkel) in the Polish Bielawa Dolna. Here they await lots of surprises and revelations. It would be too simple to expect only opulent drinking and gluttony in the View-Café. Because here the researcher of the land of Turisedia was lingering and left some secrets... The Café is open during the summer season of the Kulturinsel Einsiedel from 10am till 6pm.
