The gates to Wonderland Festival will open again at a clearing at the Stemwede mountain. 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.

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.
Graffiti & Confetti
Graffiti, markers and confetti may not be brought to any of our events! It is simply too much work to get rid of the garbage and paintings. Confetti also causes unnecessary environmental pollution. If you are interested in participating as graffiti artist you are welcome to apply and contact us. However, it is not permitted to bring spray cans and markers with you without permission!
