Get around


  • Bayreuth Hermitage (Altes Schloss Ermitage), Eremitage Haus Nr. 1, (09 21) 7 59 69-37. On the edge of the city there is an old hunting hermitage with a small castle and lush maze gardens. Very pleasant.


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

Nightlife is not the thing Bayreuth is famous for. A really good place for concerts and parties is the Glashaus on the university campus.
