beautiful Bayreuth, Germany

Bayreuth ("Buy-roight, hah) is a gem that flies under the radar and feels larger than its population of about 75,000.

about 40 minutes north of Nuremberg, of it's best known for the Bayreuth Festival which features works from Richard Wagner who purpose built an opera house in the city (32). there's also palaces (17), a university, large hospital and surprisingly awesome street art.

pics taken from several trips since it's nearby and a city i frequent often for work.

soundtrack; i couldn't resist

Bah, why trying to resist? It just still sounds great. Although a bit excessively crushing, said more subtle Claude Debussy. But in fact, Debussy himself was kind of his follower no matter what he claimed, and he came a little later. So criticism was easy for him, huh.

It must be nice to live in a small city in Western Europe.

One of my favorite joints in Bavaria. Maisel Weisse: one of the best beers, if not, the best ever in my opinion. Thanks Natasha for the tour after the rump.

Yep...

Wouldn't mind living in Pittsburgh for awhile either though. Actually come to think of it, I would rather live in Pittsburgh than Bayreuth.


Great pics LSyd!

It's a charmer all right. Looks so......tidy, too. Nice set L.

I love the smell of napalm in the morning.
Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Thanks for the tour.
