This town, situated in Upper Franconia, has almost as many canals as Venice and – so people say – can easily match the beauty of the old town of Prague. The name Bayreuth is music to the ears of Wagner fans: the five-week-long Richard Wagner Festival delights visitors from around the world year after year. The Festival Theater on the “Grüner Hügel” (Green Hill) has become the city trademark. Frequently under siege, but never taken: Sparrenburg Castle, Bielefeld trademark, has never been conquered. This indefatigable spirit is often attributed to the people of eastern Westphalia as well.
