At the Margravine’s Table

Schloss Colmdorf

When Margravine Wilhelmine arrived in Bayreuth in 1732, she was little impressed by the situation she found there, and least of all by the “dire cuisine” set before her. In the following years Bayreuth advanced under her guidance to become a most distinguished princely residence, with magnificent feasts and banquets and correspondingly opulent dining culture.

You, too, have the opportunity to dine like royalty in Baroque manner: to round off the thrilling opera performance of Handel’s Flavio in the Margravial Opera House with a grand gastronomic finale, you can reserve a table for 9 September at 11.30pm for a gourmet gala dinner at Schloss Colmdorf.

Shuttle included: Departure at approx. 11.45 p.m. (we guarantee reaching the shuttle for visitors of the event taking place before).
Wölfelstr. 4 at the Iwalewahaus (approx. 50 metres from the Opera House)
Return at 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. to Wölfelstraße / Iwalewahaus
