We celebrate the 6th year of the Genuss Arena with an extension to our second stage of the Red Stage. Thus, starting this year, there will be a Genuss arena (Blue Stage side) and a Genuss terrace (Red Stage side). Therefore double the pleasure for you!

Back then already an absolute milestone for the food development at the Nova Rock, the connoisseur island is now an absolute benchmark, which we do not want to miss anymore! Our Genuss terrace in the center of the core area at the Blue Stage with sun sails and seating! With the second Genuss island it is possible for the first time to eat relaxed and comfortable on both stages.

Like last year, we could win Star chef Max Stiegl for you again who will serve you as usual in the Genuss Arena (Blue Stage side). With his affinity for Pannonian delights, he swings the wooden spoon for you. Burgenland bonnet cuisine meets Asian timelessness! With its "PHO GA" soup, "Pita & plucked organic chicken" and for the gourmet in you try the "Melanzani from the ashes" lovingly prepared by the top chef.

Schmankerl: Tasty and high-quality meals with ingredients from the region are important to us. Together with our farmers and producers, we have spared no effort for you again and process different regional products to delicious dishes. What you can look forward to: Pig Roast, Alpenkebap, Kässpätzle, Strudel Variations, Leberkäs-Semmerl and much more.

Here you can sit and enjoy your meal in peace and quiet. For your thirst we recommend a Red Bull Organics Simply Cola or Red Bull Organics Ginger Ale.

The food courts are kept clean by our diligent cleaning staff.

Open daily until midnight.

For the wine lovers among you we have prepared a very special bar. At our wine bar in the Genuss Arena you get a variety of selected noble wines from Burgenland as well as a wonderful Uhudler. A very unique special is the "Kräuter STERNDERL" - social drink! This organic herbal lemonade is an excellent refreshment as well as a delicious wine blend. The proceeds of each sold "herbal STERNDERL" box will benefit the children's hospice Sterntalerhof!
