Letcho from the Poesta
The Hungarian kitchen is based on onions, tomato and peppers. Letcho is the traditional meal with these ingredients. It is cooked in a special kettle on an open fire. In Hungary the quality of your letcho is reflecting your personality.
is a traditional Brazilian drink which is popular all over the country, especially at the beaches, where it is the favorite drink to go with some delightful appetizers and creates a sensual and relaxed atmosphere. Enjoy a cold cocktail made of cachaça!

Golden Temple
"In its fourth decade of tickling meat-shunning palates, this temple of taste is still one of the best vegetarian (and vegan) options in town." - Frommer's Review
Golden Temple also offers Yoga Workshops at the market.

  Raclette & Swiss Wines
Traditionally, the Swiss cow herders used to take the cheese with them when they were moving cows to or from the pastures up in the mountains. In the evenings around the campfire, they would place the cheese next to the fire and, when it had reached the perfect softness, scrape it on top of some bread or potato.

Dutch Shakuhachi Society KAITO
KAITO is a small organisation that is involved with the SHAKUHACHI.

The shakuhachi Is a very old Japanese instrument. Learning to play the shakuhachi is not easy: it is difficult to develop the right power to make a strong sound. We need advisers and teachers from original Japanese traditions to play the HONKYOKU correctly.
I think this very old instrument can be a strong teacher for today's society to teach us patience, strong breathing power, spiritual intuition, etc.
"It is not me that is playing the shakuhachi: the shakuhachi is playing me…"
Workshop between: 18:30 and 21:00
Concert between: 21:30 and 23:30

Bridging Diversity - an Art Workshop
by Job Romijn
Reshape your brick according to taste, on the spot. The different "bricks" from all the different people will join together to form a very diverse bridge. Look how your brick fits in and stands out at the same time.
Workshop between 18:30 and 21:00
  Bubbels from Budapest
Hungary is one of the oldest wine producing countries. The Romans loved the Hungarian wines, and the worldwide famous Tokaji - "King of the wines and wine of the Kings" - was drunk by many kings, queens, emperors and conquerors.
Due to both world wars and the communistic period, the Hungarian wines became a forgotten treasure.
We bring the Torley pezsgo, sparkling wine with double yeasting. Brut, sec, demisec and Tokaji.
Wine Tasting:
Welcome to India
Considered as one of the most ancient civilizations on the planet, India’s gift to the world is its unique spiritual wisdom, yoga, meditation and the message of Vasudhaiva Kutumbhakam – A One World Family where Harmony in Diversity and Human Values form the basis of this multi-cultural nation which has a rich diversity of languages, customs, cuisines, religions, literature and arts. Within this kaleidoscope of immense variety there is a thread of continuity that has determined Indian civilisation and social structure. Come explore with us – A Passage to India!
