The third 'Stars in the Park' Garden Dreams Festival will be taking place in Elbauen Park in Magdeburg from 23 to 25 August 2013. It is a classical concert and pop event rolled into one that takes visitors on a journey through more than 300 years of musical history, accompanied by the Magdeburg Philharmonic Orchestra. The programme will include popular baroque melodies that are an intrinsic part of Saxony-Anhalt's tradition as well as more recent rock and pop songs. The Garden Dreams Festival is expected to attract visitors from all over Germany and provides the perfect opportunity for a short holiday in Magdeburg.
Around a hundred hectares in area, Elbauen Park is a leisure park for families that was created for the Federal Horticultural Show in 1999. One of its main attractions is the millennium tower, which, at a height of 60 metres, is said to be the highest wooden building in Germany.
