Liederhalle cultural and congress centre, Stuttgart
The name Liederhalle is a legacy of the 19th century concert hall that was destroyed in the Second World War. Stuttgart's new Liederhalle, a notable post-war cultural building that is now heritage-listed, opened on the same site in 1956. Following expansion in 1991, the Liederhalle cultural and congress centre now includes five large auditoriums and 18 smaller venues.
Richard Wagner Festival Theatre
The Richard Wagner Festival Theatre in Bayreuth is one of Germany's most famous opera houses. Only 30 performances are staged here each year, during the Wagner Festival in high summer. The festival theatre stands on the Green Hill and opened in 1876. In keeping with Richard Wagner's ideas, its architecture combines classical Greek and medieval German elements.
