Dear Handpan friends,

The time has finally come again. We are hosting our second Handpan Gathering on the weekend of July 12-14, 2024 at the idyllic Waldbad in Babben near the Spreewald.

Interested parties and absolute handpan beginners without their own instrument are very welcome. We have enough hand pans on site.


Friday arrival, jamming and getting to know each other at the pond with a fire bowl and night forest hike, Saturday a varied and relaxed program with surprise guests, Sunday breakfast together and a relaxed end to the day with lots of free time.


Babben is only about an hour from Berlin and 40 minutes from Cottbus. If required, we can offer you a shuttle service from Calau station.

We want to celebrate the summer at the idyllic edge of the forest with a cozy gathering and a relaxed program with forest bathing, swimming, yoga, Reiki, Qi Gong, Taiko drumming and handpan night hike together with you. You can camp with us, park your bus directly at the campsite or spend the night in one of the nearby affordable guesthouses. We want to have a potluck party… so everyone brings something healthy and we share. A well-kept kitchen, showers and toilets are available. We’ll cook together and there will be a talk about healthy eating. There will also be an ice cream van with 130 varieties of vegan ice cream 🍦🤪

Inka Galaktika rolls in with the “PANTARAI” and invites you to actively Sein❣️ There will be a playground with an open stage, various skill and circus games for young and old Klein❣️ You can also enjoy practicing mantra yoga here. 🧘 Inka will accompany yoga exercises with harmonium and mantra singing, which can create healing resonance in deep layers of your being 🧘. So pack your yoga mat as well as your swimming trunks 🙏.

All on a donation basis. We donate any surplus donations to a regional children’s hospice.


We are looking forward to a great and sonorous weekend with you.
