The Hermitage and Hofgarten Margrave Georg Wilhelm had the Old Palace built in 1715 near the royal town of Bayreuth as the center of a courtly hermitage. In the year of his accession in 1735 Margrave Friedrich made the terrain of his wife Wilhelmine a gift. Intrigued by the uniqueness of the plant, the Margravine immediately began extensive expansion measures.
World Heritage Site
In the 18th century, an opera house was built in the small residential town of Bayreuth, which was in no way inferior in size and splendor to the most famous houses of its time. Above all, the Margravine Wilhelmine operated emphatically the new building. In just four years of construction, the Opera House was built from 1744 to plans by Joseph St. Pierre. The façade design was based on northern Italian models and set the opera house distinctively from the adjacent houses. The interior was designed by Giuseppe Galli Bibiena, probably the most famous theater architect of his time.

It is considered one of the opera houses with the world’s best acoustics.
