Germany Trip 2007 - Bayreuth

Return to Germany trip main page.

The last day of our trip was in the town of Bayreuth where my partner's office is located.  This is the home of the composer Wagner and the world famous Bayreuth Festival.  We toured Wagner's home and the world famous Opernhaus.  The evening was at a private castle where a local Bavarian band greeted us at the bus and marched us to an evening of wild boar, ale and beer along with dancing to a second true Bavarian band.  At midnight a special surprise visit from Dracula topped it all.
