Waldfrieden Wonderland 2017
From August the 24th to 27th the gates to Wonderland will open again at a clearing at the Stemwede mountain. For the 21st time we are digging this rabbit hole. Every summer in the middle of the woods in-between trees and mushrooms, caterpillars and centipedes the valley transforms into a fairytale forest where everything is possible. Countless DJs and yogis, artists and shamans will gather to enchant the forest with you. On four dancefloors all genres of psychedelic music are played and our open spaces invite for camping on meadows and fields.

It is our desire to limit the damage to nature as much as possible. Therefor all of our electricity is supplied by renewable energy sources and we ask the food shops to sell organic and veggie food only.
Please help us to also keep the direct environment of the Waldfrieden clean by using garbage bags and pocket ashtrays. Also please use the toilets instead of going in the forest or elsewhere for that purpose.
Dogs are not allowed on the area. Unfortunately we can not allow you to bring your dogs due to spatial conditions of the nature reserve and the animals that live here.
