"BAYREUTH" Germany Things to Do Tip by Juliet67

Germany Things to Do: 1,233 reviews and 1,985 photos

Bayreuth (pronounced by-ROYT) is, in many people's minds, synonymous with the composer Richard Wagner. Every year, beginning in late July, this historic town hosts the Wagner Festival, during which 10 of the composer's operas are performed in the spectacular Wagner Festival Hall. Reservations should be made well in advance-the waiting list for tickets has exceeded a year. While there, you can also visit Wagner's home, grave and countless shrines related to his life.

Address: 40 mi/65 km northeast of Nuremberg.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
