Making Friends

Normally friendships develop naturally over the years, and don’t have to be sought. Moving to another region, however, means settling in to your new home and building up a new circle of friends and acquaintances.

To ensure that settling in in Bayreuth runs smoothly, the Economic Development Agency and Bayreuth Marketing und Tourismus GmbH offer meetings for new citizens, excursions and club fairs. We have listed these and numerous other opportunities to quickly get to know people in Bayreuth here.
