"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 zero points, placing 15th (equal last) in a field of 18, earning Germany the unwanted distinction of failing to score in two consecutive years.

The song is a dramatic ballad, detailing the tragic turn a relationship takes after a promising beginning.

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