See you soon!

Dear audience, with the event Finding Peace. A Meditation with Paul Kohtes and Markus Stockhausen, the tenth came to a successful close on June 14. 2022. We thank all our guests on the stages for their impulses and deep reflections.

We thank our audience for their curiosity and willingness to open up to deeper discourse in confusing times. We were able to welcome about 9000 visitors during the festival week and we are happy,

that our program was so well received, especially by children and young people in the KLASSE DENKEN program. Our heartfelt thanks go to all the dedicated teachers who organized the visits of their classes.
Big thanks also go to all our partners and sponsors for their support and for making this unique festival possible. 11 will take place from June 6 -13, 2023.
