Hotel Bayerischer Hof****


It is not by chance that the hotelss guest books contain the "Who is who" of the world of music and acting from the past and the present, because the hotel is the closest to the festival theatre.

Due to the central location of the privately owned hotel the historic Old Town with the Margravial Opera House and the Villa Wahnfried can also be reached by foot within a few minutes. Individually designed rooms, fitness and wellness area with various saunas, a small garden and last but not least the GENDARMERIE - our bar, wine tavern or brasserie - provide the frame for a pleasant stay.

For guests of the hotel there are parking spaces for cars and bikes as well as a parking garage available. Cyclists, who start their tour on the Main Cycle Path or on the Castle Road Cycle Path here, will receive the entire range of services of a "Bed and Bike" certified hotel.
Just a few steps away, explore the Bayreuth of the Markgravine Wilhelmine with the New Palace and the historic Hermitage, take a walk to the Richard Wagner Festival Theatre on the "green hill" or to the Richard Wagner Museum in the inner city.

What we are proud of

"French atmosphere paired with Franconian products", e.g. the original Alsatian tarte flambée; either classical with ham and onions, Franconian with bratwurst and cabbage or sweet with apples from Seulbitz...enjoy our many variations of this French delicacy - try them!

Sustainable and regionally linked

We purchase and serve home-brewed beer from the Herold brewery in Büchenbach, the Franconian wines are from the Juliusspital winery of Würzburg and the Wirsching winery in Iphofen. We buy our fruit juices (apple juice partly pressed from our home-grown apples), schnapps, water, bread, vegetables, meat and eggs from producers and suppliers within a 50 km radius whenever possible. The exceptions are our direct suppliers and producers from France - because it’s just not the same without French wine and cheese.
