Hotel Bayerischer Hof****


The "who is who" from music and drama in both past and present displayed in the guest book of the hotel is not surprising, because you cannot spend the night closer to the festival hall in Bayreuth.

Moreover, due to the central location of the privately-run hotel, it is possible to reach the historical old town with its Margravial Opera House and Villa Wahnfried in only a few minutes by foot. All rooms are different; the wellness area with the Finnish sauna, steam sauna, relaxing area and fitness area, the small garden and last but not least the GENDARMERIE - our bar, wine- or beertavern - provide the framework for a pleasant stay. Wines from Franconia, France and Austria are being served, as well as Franconian beer and snacks.
The garage of the hotel and parking spaces for cars and bikes are among the amenities of the house. Cyclists who start their tour on the Main cycletrack or on the Castle Road cycle track are offered the complete range of services of a "bed and bike" certified business.

Within only a few steps explore Bayreuth from margravine Wilhelmine's point of view with the New Palace, the UNESCO world heritage Margravial Opera House and the Hermitage, walk to the Richard-Wagner-festival hall located on the green hill, and visit the Richard Wagner museum in the city.
