The university town of Bayreuth, primarily known by the Richard-Wagner-Festival, famous worldwide, offers myriads of sights worth seeing to its visitors. The margrave’s opera in the centre, not far from the pedestrian zone, is considered to be one of the most beautiful well-preserved baroque theatres of Europe. The margrave residence, consisting of delightful castles in the inner-city, as well as the historical park “Eremitage” with its dreamy grots and trick fountains are evidence of the history of the Baroque around 1750. The festival hall with its stupendous acoustics and many interesting museums et al. the Richard-Wagner-Museum, procure a peculiar experience of art.
Numerous festivals of music and theatre in front of historic scenery offer a cultural enjoyment at the highest stage.
