Bayreuth, city of Richard Wagner, Germany

I found this beautiful card while visiting the city of Bayreuth during our Pentecost trip and sent it home for my own collection.
It shows the Festival Hall and Villa Wahnfried, the residence of Richard Wagner. The villa was home to the Wagner family until 1966 and has now been turned into a Museum. The Festival hall dates back to the 19th century and is exclusively used for the Bayreuth Festival. Only works by Richard Wagner are put on stage there.
