Summer Night Festival

The annual summer night festival will take place on July 27th 2019. The Bayreuth Marketing & Tourism GmbH is pleased to welcome you to the 50th anniversary this year!


We are counting the days until the next summer night festival. With hopefully nice weather, the Bayreuth Marketing & Tourism GmbH, will again present a diversified program.

Your children will not be bored either. Last year the little ones had the opportunity to let off steam in the meadow next to the Parnassus. With various games, mini golf, and face painting, the fun was great.

The offers of our restaurants were very well received. Although during rush hours the lines of people waiting for their food were long, we hope, the wait for langos, pizza, porchetta, bratwurst, prawns and sausages, was worth it. Look forward again this year, to a variety of offers of food and drinks!

Look at our facebook page regularly! Here we keep you up to date and informed of the newest things on the 50th anniversary of the summer night festival at the Eremitage!

Background knowledge about the summer night festival: the festival was re-established in 1969. About 250 years ago, the margraves invited their subjects to come to the former hermitage, to enjoy a fun summer party, where the margravian society hoped for dispersion from the court etiquette.
