Kulturinsel Einsiedel A place for adventure seekers and explorers Situated in Europe’s largest forestland, Kulturinsel Einsiedel is more than a theme park. It is a place for young adventurers and adult explorers who have preserved their sense for childhood excitement. Themed around the 1,000 year old legendary Turisede culture, visitors not only try to reveal their secrets but can also enjoy leisure time – for example in Germany’s first tree house hotel.

Kulturinsel Einsiedel is a place for the soul and is surrounded by nature. Situated at a woody hillside facing the Neiße river the tree houses offer adventurous nights in nine different houses – ten meters high between branches and connected by wooden bridges. There are six tree houses for up to four people (constant hot water included) and three even more spacious houses with space for six people, a little kitchen and a comfortable bathroom. Guests can also stay in adventurous accommodations on the ground and even under the earth’s surface. The earth house for example is a cosy retreat especially for those normally working in an office. Here a wooden structure creates a safe cocoon, shielding from constantly ringing mobile phones and blinding computer screens.

Mattresses are laid out on a platform surrounding the entire earth house, up to 28 people bringing along their sleeping bags will find a place to sleep or listen to the sounds of the night.

The name Faulenzum is a wordplay and refers to the German term for lazing about. Culture also plays an important part, not only speaking of the dinner show or special events on public holidays. On the first weekend in September Kulturinsel Einsiedel houses the FOLKLORUM – Germany’s second biggest festival for folk and world music. Kulturinsel Einsiedel is a multicultural place: Situated directly at the Polish border it blends into the Polish adventure village Bielawa Dolna. www.kulturinsel.com

No matter if you're staying in an oriental tent in the so-called Waldsiedlum or in a tree-bed, the entertainment programme, daily and nightly adventures make staying on Kulturinsel Einsiedel truly special. It is a unique place with more than 500 metres of underground tunnels, a magic castle, a tree house village and animals from all over the world. While children might enjoy an evening at the bonfire or a midnight adventure, many adults may prefer the sauna or a long relaxing bath in one of the Faulenzum tubs.
