About Grafenegg

The Grafenegg Festival is one of Europe's most important orchestra festivals. Music, nature and architecture blend into an all-embracing work of art.

High-calibre classical concerts against a wonderful backdrop: Grafenegg, situated between Vienna and the Wachau valley, has risen within the space of a few years to be a festival venue of international renown, delighting people from all over the world season by season with its unique atmosphere. In the middle of the enchanting castle park stands the impressive Wolkenturm (Pillar of Clouds) open-air arena, rated one of the best outdoor stages in the world for its acoustics. Grafenegg matches this excellence with the region’s best wines, like Grüner Veltiner, and dishes. These can be tasted at various locations on the Grafenegg estate, such as the new garden pavilion «Wolke 7» (Cloud 7) and the Vinothegg or, say, at a picnic in the castle park.

Alongside a full summer programme of classical and modern music, beginning in mid-June with the star-studded Midsummer Night’s Gala and ending in mid-September with the Grafenegg Festival, Grafenegg is an all-year-round venue for a wide variety of events attracting more than 150 000 people annually to the romantic castle campus. For decades now, the «Grafenegger Advent» has been one of Austria’s liveliest Christmas markets; with its «Schlossklänge» cycle, the Tonkünstler Orchestra of Lower Austria provides orchestral concerts throughout the year. The highlights are the festive concerts for Christmas, New Year’s Eve and Easter.
