Bayreuth is a town in the northern Bavaria, Germany, located on the Red Main River. It is famous for its annual festival, where performances of operas by Richard Wagner are presented. The town was probably founded sometime during the twelfth century, although it was referred to as a village back then. The major turning point came in the early seventeenth century, when the son of the elector John George of Brandenburg moved to Bayreuth. This was followed by the building of places like New Palace, Hermitage Castle, Margravial Opera House, and others.

Since then, a lot of notable people have lived and worked in Bayreuth. Among them was the famous German composer Richard Wagner, who moved there in the nineteenth century. Wagner was responsible for founding the Bayreuther Festspiele Festival, where his works were performed in a special opera house, the Bayreuth Festspielhaus. The festival is still held every year nowadays and is considered one of the main attractions of Bayreuth. A particularly popular tourist spot is also Richard Wagner's residence, Wahnfried, which servers as a museum today. Some of the interesting sights also include Maisel's Brewery and Coopers Museum, Historical Museum, Castle Church (Schlosskirche), Castle Fantaisie (Schloss Fantaisie), and many others.

There is a decent bus network in Bayreuth, although most of the sights can be visited on foot or by bicycle. A Beyreuth hostel is perhaps your best option if you're planning on staying in the town for a few days. There is quite a lot to see, but in case you get bored, the towns of Bamber and Nürnberg, which offer a couple of very exciting sights of their own, are not located too far from Bayreuth.
