“CLOSED FOR RENOVATION”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We were very disappointed that this little gem of an operahouse was closed to visitor and will stay closed for a couple of years. We can only see a small model of the interior but they did not charge admission. Would love to see the real thing sometimes n the future.

“We are not amused”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

The Operahouse is under renovation. Fair enough, it's probably necessary. But luring tourists inside to see almost nothing maybe on the verge of cheating. The first room is with historical fact in German end English, and is about the renovation of the opera. The second (and last) room is filled (well, not filled but anyway) with posters on the authors of music and operas. Good if you German, but sucks is you don't.

And you get to see the opera from the Royal Lounge - - you think, but no, you get to see a large poster of the opera, and behind those, are different working areas - that you can only sparsely see.

2 Euro for that is........ mnayby contributing to the renovation, but not to my satisfaction.

“This gem must be visited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is the exquisite 17th century opera house: one of very few of its type still surviving and a 'must' for every visitor to Bayreuth.

“Fabulous place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

This is a beautifully decorated opera house. If you only visit one place in Bayreuth, make it Matkgrafliches Opera House. It is stunning.

“A must for opera goers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

A beautiful baroque opera house - probably the finest in Europe. Check if it is closed for forthcoming renovation
