BAYREUTH - THE WAGNER FESTIVAL
Last year we were pleased to have been able to provide a client with tickets and accommodation at the Festival with little notice but last minute booking is not recommended for this oversubscribed event. This annual festival is held in the famous theatre created by Wagner himself specifically for the performance of his own works.
The location of Bayreuth was made for many reasons not the least of which was the view that the town had no other cultural strengths which would compete with the work of the Wagner Theatre. The theatre opened in 1876 and the many architectural innovations were responses to Wagner’s demand for a more ‘democratic’ seating arrangement, a clear view of the stage for all the audience and for the accommodation of the huge orchestra required in Wagner’s operas. It is the dream of Wagner enthusiasts to hear his works at the Festival.
Bayreuth has many attractions including:- the Museum, the Castle Tower, the Margravial Opera House (a baroque theatre, very different from the Wagner Theatre), the New Castle with its Margrave Fountain and Wagner’s House, where Cosima and Richard Wagner are buried.

Hotel Arvena Kongress ****
This is a comfortable, modern four star hotel with a good restaurant and it is well located for visiting the opera house which is only 0.84 miles away.
Other hotels are available; there is a traditional family-run hotel which is not quite so close to the opera house for the same price, a Ramada hotel in the city centre also for the same price or a more luxurious one at a higher price.
