One of Germany’s most prolific centers for the arts, Bayreuth today offers a rich mixture of history, both physical and cultural. Though heavily damaged during Allied bombing raids during World War II, Bayreuth underwent a committed process of postwar reconstruction to restore it to its former glory. Originally rising to prominence as a festival city, it is perhaps most famous for its music and opera houses, owing many of its sites and fame to former resident Richard Wagner. Despite being relatively small by national standards, the town still manages to offer a large selection of fine dining and local beer breweries, along with a surprisingly bustling nightlife thanks to its sizeable student population. Bayreuth’s place as a nexus of higher learning coupled with its luxuriant palaces and green spaces, make it a microcosm of a high-class urban center. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Bayreuth and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
