Questions & Answers

Where do the guided tours start and end?

Does the guided visit include a tour of the Grosse Festspielhaus?

As such, it may happen that tours do not visit all of the sites due to rehearsals or ongoing renovation work or are rescheduled altogether. We kindly ask for your understanding.
