The Kulturinsel Einsiedel is located on mythical land. Around a thousand years ago the legendary Slavic people of Turisedia lived here. Every end of the summer they celebrated their Festival Games (today called the Folklorum - Turisedian Festival Games).According to ancient, recently discovered records, political and social questions were playfully answered during the games. And this is to be taken literally!With help of the games, offices were filled, hierarchies were determined, and even strangers could acquire Turisedian civil rights through the victory in the games, if they were skilfull players.

In the context of the competitions of the Turisedian Games was held a festival of music, laughter, and dance. For 2 and a half days the Turisedian could be "different".
