Bayreuth is a festival city in Upper Franconia (Oberfranken) a region of Bavaria, Germany. It is best known for being home to the famous classical musician Richard Wagner and for hosting the Festspiele.
Drink some of the local wheat beer - Hefeweizen - it is perhaps the best sipping beer in the world.
When traveling in summer, make sure not to miss the beautiful Theta beergarden. It is located in the hills above Bayreuth and it's hard to get there. But even taking a taxi would be worth it. For active people it is possible to do a very nice hike here from the Festspielhaus
