Fodor's Review

Opera lovers swear that there are few more intense operatic experiences than the annual Wagner Festival in Bayreuth, held July and August. You'll do best if you plan your visit several years in advance. It is nearly impossible to find a hotel room during the festival: try finding a room in Kronach instead of Bayreuth.

Bayreuther Festspiele Kartenbüro. For tickets to the Wagner Festival, write to the Bayreuther Festspiele Kartenbüro by the middle of October

the year before, at the latest. Be warned: The waiting list is years long, and they only offer tickets by mail or online and will ignore any other inquiries. 0921/78780.
