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.

For tickets, obtain an order form from the Bayreuther Festspiele Kartenbüro and submit the completed form by the middle of September 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.
