  • The Markgräfliche Opera House, which has been a World Heritage Site since 2012
  • The New Castle
  • The Old Castle/Hermitage
  • The Festival Hall. Listen carefully – the atmosphere still allows traces of Richard Wagner's ghost to be felt. But Bayreuth is more than just Wagner's green
  • hill.

Ideal for sports groups

We are not just a mecca for culture-loving girls and boys though. Sports groups will also get their full money's worth. The next competition is coming up and you still have to prepare? Is your youth team planning an active weekend? Maybe you want to combine concentration with skill – then off to the climbing park in Hof. The Kreuzsteinbad right next to our youth hostel offers a mixture of relaxation and sport. We are happy to help you compile your individual programme.

Relax and take a stroll

Let your imagination run wild in and around Bayreuth. You will find plenty of romantic places not far from our hostel. Stroll through Fantaisie Castle and Park with its Garden Art Museum. Also very popular: the Sanspareil rock garden, Zwernitz Castle and the Ecological-Botanical Garden. Fill up with fresh air in the great outdoors. In the nearby Fichtel Mountains and in Franconian Switzerland, there is much to discover, even for the very littlestnature lovers. Our hostel is an ideal starting point for excursions into the countryside.
