View from the tourist information center right into the heart of the Wagner city Bayreuth
The tourist information office is located directly at the Canale Grande, the beginning of Bayreuth’s pedestrian zone. From this perspective the webcam captures special sights of the city.
The Iwalewa House can be seen on the far left of the image. The house is pursuing the educational mandate of researching and documenting the cultures of Africa. You can listen to lectures and visit exciting exhibitions during your stay in one of the conference rooms.
The Redoutenhaus is located next to the Iwalewahaus. Currently under construction, the new Opera House Museum will soon move into this building as soon as renovations are over. An exhibition about the creation and use of the Margravial Opera House will then await it’s visitors.
The Margravial Opera House,which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2012, is located right next to the Redoutenhaus. The opera house is among of the most beautiful baroque theaters in the world. We highly recommend a guided tour through the historic building to immerse yourself in the exciting world of the margraves in Bayreuth.
Opposite the opera house you’ll find the Wittelsbacher fountain and the castle church, a church from the time of the margraves.
The adjacent pedestrian zone in Bayreuth invites all visitors to a relaxed shopping experience. A variety of shops from Opernstrasse to Maximilianstrasse are waiting for your visit!
