Margravial Opera House: World Heritage & Museum

The Margravial Opera House: A world-class theatre monument and a testimony of court festival and music culture!


Margrave Wilhelmine and Margrave Friedrich III of Brandenburg-Bayreuth had it built by the star architect Giuseppe Galli Bibiena on the occasion of their only daughter Elisabeth Friederike’s marriage. The free-standing building from the Baroque era with its impressive wooden interior construction foreshadowed the large public theatres of the 19th century. Since 2012 the Margravial Opera House has been a UNESCO World Heritage site. As you will see for yourself:
