3. The city
As a city with a population of around 75,000, Bayreuth is the perfect place for an unforgettable student experience. In addition to its famous opera festival, Bayreuth offers a remarkable range of cultural activities such as street festivals, concerts, and museums. The city’s historic town centre – with its many pubs and cafes – is only a few minutes away from the campus. And don’t forget to taste the popular beer from local breweries!
Extending your stay after the conclusion of the Bayreuth International Summer School is highly recommended, as it gives you more time to enjoy the beautiful landscape around the city and to explore the castles, waterfalls, caves and forests. The surrounding region is also perfect for hiking, mountain-biking, climbing or canoeing.
