The Indian Village and the Karl-May express[Absatz]
Right next to the open air theatre is the Indian Village. Painted tipis, totem poles, a dancing site and a fireplace are situated in front of the Nebraska house, where an exhibition displays the life of the Native Americans in the prairie of the Mid West, in the woods, at the Great Lakes and in the perennial ice.
The exhibition at the Karl-May house grants you "a peep behind the scenes" of the festival. Among other things, you can see pictures of past performances and a documentation of the artistic posters of the festival.
You can also explore the old town centre of Bad Segeberg with the Karl-May express, a small western train – guided by the local sheriff, of course.
