    At the foot of the Belvedere rock next to the siren and calypso grotto is the only preserved staffage the ruins and grotto theater. Due to its location immediately in front of the orchestra pit of the ruins theater and its expansion, the calypso grotto was usable as a rain-proof auditorium. Even today, theatrical performances still take place in this special atmosphere of the rock garden.

    The caves were given by Margravine Wilhelmine of Bayreuth exclusively names from Greek and Roman mythology.

    In 1746, at the behest of Margravine Wilhelmine von Bayreuth, the work on the ruins and grotto theater was modeled after the Bayreuth ruin theater in the rock garden of Sanspareil.

    Today, however, is still the ruin theater - a mixture of grotto and ruin. The auditorium is under a powerful natural rock arch; The orchestra pit, the backdrop arches and the back wall are made of quarry stones.

    The rock garden is the hotspot of the region. Great backdrop for cool photos. The circuit is beautifully landscaped, free entry and ample parking.

    In autumn (October), the possibilities to stop (beer gardens) were unfortunately very clear.

    We got inspired and were rewarded with a wonderful hike. We were there on 21.10.17, the autumn forest is already a highlight in itself, but unfortunately the beer garden season is already over. The gastronomic possibilities were unfortunately only limited available. No problem - we could rely on our travel catering. Thanks for bringing.
