Paradies, wo bist du? (English translation: "Paradise, Where Are You?", sometimes, but not always, attested with a question mark) was the German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1965, performed in German by Ulla Wiesner.

The song was performed fifth on the night (following Ireland's Butch Moore with "Walking the Streets in the Rain" and preceding Austria's Udo Jürgens with "Sag ihr, ich lass sie grüßen"). At the close of voting, it had received the dreaded nul points, placing 15th (equal last) in a field of 18.

The song is a dramatic ballad, with Wiesner wondering if she has found paradise as a result of a romantic experience.

It was succeeded as German representative at the 1966 Contest by Margot Eskens with "Die Zeiger der Uhr".
