The resplendent baroque Margravial Opera House in the southern German town of Bayreuth has re-opened after a six-year renovation. And it's worth a closer look. It’s been on UNESCO’s world heritage list since 2012.
On April 12 the Opera House will be reopened after a lengthy renovation. Built by famous theatre architect Giuseppe Galli Bibiena, it is one of the most spectacular buildings of European Baroque festive architecture.
The renovation cost 30 million euros - but the Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth now shines brighter than ever. The original baroque theater has opened its doors again on Thursday, 12 April.
Neuschwanstein Castle, built by King Ludwig II, remains the biggest tourist magnet in Bavaria. Bayreuth and Munich are also popular with visitors.
42 World Heritage Sites in Germany invite you to guided tours and events on UNESCO World Heritage Day on 3 June. Soon there could be two new UNESCO sites.
