The catering of the festival guests in Bayreuth in 2023 is again in the hands of wahnfood GmbH from Bayreuth. As in 2022, Wahnfood will provide visitors with various catering offers around the Festspielhaus to offer a culinary range on the green hill before, during and after the performances. In doing so, the concept will change somewhat after last year’s experience and offer an even better service for visitors. The “Feel-Good” should also be in the foreground outside of the performances and enable the guests of the festival to enjoy a complete and high-quality opera experience.

A pre-paid concept with a high-quality buffet area under the name Festival Garden will once again move into the former Steigenberger Festival Restaurant. Guests will be catered for with small, healthy and regionally sourced portions – from cakes to starters, main courses to desserts. The outdoor area will be redesigned once again and will be exclusively available to visitors of this gastronomic concept.

On the terrace above the restaurant, in the last year of the Ring Lounge, Wahnfood will redevelop another gastronomic concept and offer visitors a special service here. More is not yet to be revealed.

The former self-service restaurant to the right of the Festspielhaus will remain a self-service food court under the name “Green Hill Kitchen”. Here, guests will be served at various buffet stations and, of course, there will again be a special festival bratwurst as a special creation.

In the outdoor catering area to the left of the Festspielhaus, there will once again be the “Walk of Fame” with various gastro stations. Here you can enjoy small dishes and drinks at high tables that are weatherproof and can be used even in the rain.

The concept will be rounded off with “Wagner-To-Go” bicycles, which will be distributed across the festival grounds and into the festival park, and will have drinks, coffee, sparkling wine, etc. ready and waiting.

For picnic fans, there will again be the special Festival basket including blanket and dishes for the breaks, this time in 2 versions. The PickNick station will move to the Walk of Fame for this purpose.

The gourmet card will no longer exist in the form of 2022, however Wahnfood will rely even more on EC cards and electronic means of payment at the cashier stations to enable faster processing of the payment process. The aim is to enable visitors to spend as little cash as possible on the green hill.
