The castle

Castello is an early XIX century castle, located in a small village in the middle of nowhere surrounded by beautiful nature. It is a 4-storey building with an area of 5,000 square meters and over 100 rooms and 25 bathrooms.

Originally built for nobles and aristocrats, it will now be turned into the most outstanding location for an electronic music festival ever thought of.


The castle offers various beautiful types of accommodation.

Every room is individual and composed lovingly with furniture and objects of famous hotels and special places from all over the world - every room has unique characteristics and extravagant features.

We have around 70 cozy rooms you can choose from: Luxury double rooms with own bath or the mind-blowing King Suite for the real connoisseurs - 3,4,5,6 or 8-bed rooms for your funky festival group or spacious dormitories with up to 20 beds for the people who like it easy.

There are five residential zones within Castello:

When buying the ticket you can select which zone and combination of bedroom you would like to book.

It´s not possible to buy a Festival-Ticket without booking a bed.

If you have any questions concerning accommodation please feel free to ask and write an email to
