Wagner Village !

I love Bayreuth - I studied there. The story I like best about Bayreuth is how the archduchess Wilhelmine, favourite sister of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, came to the place in the 18th century, found it incredibly boring and decided to build some sights like the Hermitage to make it more attractive. She was very successful indeed!

    In addition to Bamberg, we are to try and stop here for the lovely sites. You must have enjoyed the college days taking in the beauty of the city.
