The Noonday Witch in a Tower of Clouds

Grafenegg Castle, situated between Vienna and the Wachau in Lower Austria, has developed into an internationally renowned festival location in the last few years.

There are several concert halls in the middle of a spacious park on the grounds of Schloss Grafenegg: the spectacular open-air stage Wolkenturm (the ‘Cloud Tower’), the modern auditorium and the historic riding school. Open-air concerts also take place in the park.

Visitors appreciate the top-class programme as well as the impressive setting and classical music can be heard in Grafenegg all year round.

The Chamber Orchestra of Europe conducted by Rudolf Buchbinder (01 September), the Königliche Concertgebouw-Orchester Amsterdam (05 September) and the Vienna Philharmonic, for example, will give guest performances between 01 and 08 September.

On 08 September, they will perform the symphonic poem “Die Mittagshexe” (‘The Noonday Witch’) by Antonín Dvořák in the Wolkenturm.

Tip: If you want to combine your visit to Grafenegg with a wine tasting, you will find numerous wine taverns and vineyards nearby. Grafenegg lies on the edge of the Wagram wine region. Only a short distance away are the famous wine regions of the Wachau, Kremstal and Kamptal.
