    Hofgarten

    by MichaelFalk1969 Written Aug 9, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A beautiful yet small public parc with sculptures, fountains, canals, bridges ... a nice place to lay down on the lawn and read a good book in summer. The Richard Wagner museum and the Markgräfliches Schloss (palace) are very close.

    The Festspielhaus

    by MichaelFalk1969 Written Aug 9, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The composer Richard Wagner was able to create this concert house exclusively dedicated to his own works, due to sufficient funding by the bavarian king Ludwig II. No other opera will be performed here. You will find the Festspielhaus on the "Red Hill" (Roter Hügel) well outside the city centre. It is not quite easy for music lovers to get tickets - you have to apply for tickets years before you actually will see a concert (if you`re lucky). A visit to the interesting and wortwhile Richard Wagner - museum might be an alternative.

    The favourite sister of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, built this remarkable rococco palace and garden. The park is stuffed with romantic grottoes, lakes, fake classical ruins and especially romantic in autumn. In summer, there are concerts, festivals and theater performances.
