Communal dancefloor energy from the world's
best artists at a sustainable music festival.

It's called Paradies Garten for a reason.

Let's uncover one of Austria's most beautiful festival locations.

Paradies Garten takes place in the beautiful castle gardens of Prugg Castle, right in the center of Bruck an der Leitha. It's right at the border of the vast Harrach Park, which also houses the Sweet Harmony camping. The natural beauty of this location is perhaps Paradies Garten's biggest headliner. With respect to its history and in collaboration with the current owner, we are proud to organise a sustainable festival that entirely runs on green energy (powered by the nearby windmill farm) and leaves a minimal ecological footprint.

As one of the greenest festivals in Europe, we're always looking for ways to decrease our impact on the environment. Traditionally, car transport is the single greatest contributor to the total carbon emissions of a music festival. That's why it's so important to double down on alternative modes of transport, like trains. Luckily, we have found a great mobility partner in ÖBB.

ÖBB offers our visitors a seamless journey: a swift 30-minute train ride between Vienna and to Bruck an der Leitha, followed by an E-Postbus shuttle service ready to transport attendees and their luggage directly to the festival grounds. And when the last artists have finished their sets, a complimentary night train service ensures a safe and convenient return trip.

Prugg Castle

The first stones of Prugg Castle were initially constructed in the 11th century as a fortress to protect against Hungarian invasions. Strategically located near the Leitha River, it held significant military importance to whoever could hold on to it, rarely changing hands in medieval times. Despite enduring several sieges, it was only abandoned once due to lack of provisions in 1484. Ownership shifted through noble families over the centuries, undergoing significant renovations in the 18th and 19th centuries. Plundered in 1945, it since remains in the possession of the Harrach family.

Harrach Park

The Harrach Park, formerly a Renaissance garden, was transformed into a baroque ornamental and pleasure garden around 1700 and was designed by Hildebrandt. Extending within and northeast of the fortifications, it featured bosquets, utility, and orchard gardens reaching the Leitha River and beyond into a hunting ground. The gardens gained renown across Europe. Redesigned as a landscape garden in 1789, it incorporated rare botanical specimens curated by Johann von Harrach. Despite its decline in the mid-20th century, extensive restoration since 1999 returned the park to its 1800s splendour. Protected as a significant Austrian landscape garden, it contains diverse wildlife habitats.
