For bargain hunters: The Bayreuth folk festival thaler

You want to get a 10% discount at the folk festival? Then the “Volksfesttaler” are perfect for you. You can buy these at the Tourist Information or at the Info-Point at the main entrance of the event and act as their own currency at the event. Each thaler has a value of €1. However, if you buy 10 pieces, you only pay 9€. So you save 10% on your visit to the festival. You can still redeem the thalers at the Bayreuth folk festival in the following years.
