Famous as the site of the ever-controversial Wagner Festival, this glowing Bavarian town on the Red Main River is home to lovely parks and gardens, magnificent courts and castles, a variety of museums, and a deep tradition of church music. Bayreuth offers museums in honor of both Wagner and Franz Liszt, as well as a rich literary past. A stately architectural style, a typically Bavarian surround, and a history beginning from the twelfth century all contribute to the sense of wonder one feels upon entering the magical world of Bayreuth. From the legendary Markgräfliches Opernhaus to the Rococo splendor of the Steingraeber Haus – and from gorgeous golfing to relaxing hot springs – Bayreuth offers a truly unforgettable experience for all.
