Bayreuth City & Area
The former Margravial residence Bayreuth is today world famous for the annual Richard Wagner Festival, its baroque old city and its modern University. The largest city in Upper Franconia has a strong economy and is well on its way to becoming the high-tech centre of the region, with many “hidden champion” specialized companies located in close vicinity to Bayreuth.
Bayreuth´s Margravial Opera House is the most beautiful baroque theatre in Europe and was appointed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2012. Visitors are welcome to visit fascinating palaces, the historic gardens of the Eremitage with its mysterious caves and water fountains, the Richard-Wagner-Festspielhaus with its unique acoustics and more than 20 unique museums. Bayreuth is the gateway to the tourist regions Fichtelgebirge and the romantic Fränkische Schweiz, and to other famous cities like Bamberg, Nürnberg and Munich.
Comfortable hotels and guesthouses invite you to relax and to forget everyday troubles. Franconian and international restaurants provide a variety of gastronomic delights.
The conference will be hosted on the modern campus of the University of Bayreuth.
