Fragrant spices, shimmering jewels, flowing silk - these are sensual impressions that make Europeans think of India. A touch of this exoticism blows through the open-air museum Archaeological Center Hitzacker on the evening of July 26th. Already at the entrance, guests are greeted with a respectful "Namasté" (I bow to you). At 7 pm, the curtain rises for the "Indian Night". On stage, in colorful costumes, the dancers of the Bollywood Dance Motion and the drum group "Drum a Holic - Mittran Da Dhol" can be seen and heard. At the stands, chefs of the Hamburg restaurant "Indien Tempel" serve curry chicken and a vegetarian dish; Ayurveda therapist Andrea Wallosek informs about gentle ways to a healthy way of life and body artist Christiane Pabberaju paints with Henna powder decorative motifs on hands and arms.
Prominent guest is Ajit Pal Singh, director of the Indian Tourist Board, who wants to discover India with films, photos and reports. Travel agency partner Jana Maria Matzke informs about popular travel destinations on the subcontinent
