welcome back on my blog. Today I’ll show you some pics from a trip to Bayreuth, a city in northern Bavaria, which is famous for its Bayreuth Festival, at which performances of operas by the 19th-century German composer Richard Wagner are presented. Wagner himself conceived and promoted the idea of a special festival to showcase his own works, in particular his monumental cycle “Der Ring des Nibelungen” and “Parsifal”.
The first place we visited in Bayreuth was the park of the Eremitage. Too bad it was (and is) still in its winter sleep so we could not see the buildings from inside as well as the famous trick fountains.
Afterwards, we visited the inner city of Bayreuth. Unfortunately, most places for sightseeing were also closed – not because of winter, but because of actual refurbishments. One of them is the Old Castle.
Another building which was and still is closed because of refurbishments, is the Opera House, which must not be confused with the Bayreuth Festspielhaus, which is located on the Green Hill.
Have a wonderful time!
