'Stars in the Park' Garden Dreams Festival

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.
