Search Radius (Miles)

Perched atop the hill, Plassenburg is a magnificent castle offering breathtaking views of Kulmbach. A prominent landmark of the city, the castle originated in the 12th Century and has served many royal families as a residence. Dismantled during the Margravian war, the castle was reconstructed by architect Caspar Vischer. Apart from being a notable attraction of the city, the castle is mostly visited for the in-house museum showcasing Prussian military antiques and portraits. It also plays host to several cultural events of the area.

Burg Parkstein

Situated on top of a basalt outcrop and looking over the sweeping valley below, Burg Parkstein was once a magnificent castle of unknown origin, which was inhabited since at least the 12th century. The structure was damaged during the Thirty Year War, and was eventually razed to the ground, with a beautiful chapel now taking its place. Explore the few sparse remnants of this once majestic castle and enjoy the admirable views of the verdant countryside.

Altes Schloss Eremitage

Eremitage is one of Bayreuth's prime tourist attractions, known for its history and architecture. The park includes the old castle or Altes Schloss, smaller residences and sprawling gardens. One of the many homes of the German monarchy, the Altes Schloss was built during the 18th Century by Margrave Friedrich and later expanded by his wife. Known for its distinct architecture and prized Baroque interiors, the Chinese hall of mirrors, the orangerie and the magnificent Sun Temple are some of the most breathtaking attractions on the site. Closed during the winters, it is advisable to call prior to planning a visit.

Margravial Opera House

The Markgräfliches Opernhaus is an architectural treasure. Designed by Joseph Saint-Pierre, this grand structure was built circa 1744. Since its opening, this venue has had the honor of being the premier location for the city's major events, including some royal weddings. Built of wood and canvas, this magnificent Baroque structure is remarkably well-preserved and is a rare treasure indeed. With its lavish décor, acoustical sound design and rich paintings, the opera house's designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site should come as no surprise. The opera house is open to visitors and also provides tours.

Bayreuth Festspielhaus

Conceived of and constructed at the behest of Richard Wagner, the Bayreuth Festspielhaus exclusively showcases the composer's operatic creations. The opera house first opened its doors in 1876, and has since been the venue of choice for the annual Bayreuth Festival. Built upon a rather unusual design, by 19th-century standards, the main hall features a steeply rising seating area that is designed to ensure that every member of the audience is afforded an unobstructed view of the stage. The hidden orchestra cave is an innovation of Wagner's own design, further adding to the ethereal quality of his operas by creating the optical illusion of distance. As one of the world's largest, freestanding timber structures, the Bayreuth Festspielhaus is as much an architectural wonder as it is a haven for fans of opera. The opera house is also sometimes referred to as the Richard-Wagner-Festspielhaus.

Neues Schloss Bayreuth

The Neues Schloss (New Palace) Bayreuth was constructed in 1753 as the seat of the ruler Margrave Friedrich von Brandenburg-Bayreuth. It has numerous attractions within its confines such as the Italienischen Schlösschens (Italian Palace) and the Palm Room, both of which exhibit magnificent Rococo architecture with trellis and walnut panels. It also boasts of Gallery Rooms with historic German and Dutch artworks, two museums exhibiting local history, and prominent rooms such as the Old Music Room and the Cabinet of Fragmented Mirrors. After visiting the palace, make sure to stop by the Hofgarten, a splendid garden that forms a part of the palace grounds.
