Lighthouse

In 2023, the opera “Madame Butterfly” by Giacomo Puccini will be performed on the largest lake stage in the world. Secure your tickets now for this extraordinary performance as part of the Bregenz Festival!

By boat to the lake stage

Let yourself be inspired by the 2023 game on the lake: tickets for the Bregenz Festival and for the boat trip to Bregenz and back can be obtained at the Lindau Tourist Information Office at Alfred-Nobel-Platz 1.

Start the festival evening glamorously on board the “MS Schwaben” and be taken in style directly to the lake stage. The festival ship departs on all performance days of “Madame Butterfly” at 19:30 in the Lindau harbour and at 19:55 at the Hotel Bad Schachen. You will reach the Seeb├╝hne Bregenz at around 8:20 pm, so that you will have enough time to enjoy the stage set, the lake and the evening sun. The return journey to Lindau will take place after the end of the performance (arrival in Bad Schachen at approx. 00:15 hrs, arrival in Lindau harbour at approx. 00:30 hrs).

By railway to the lake stage

With the Festival ticket you can travel free of charge on the day of the performance with the Austrian S-Bahn (suburban railway) back and forth between Lindau-Insel or Lindau-Reutin and Bregenz station. Whether you are an overnight guest on the mainland or a day tripper – use the convenient connection from Lindau-Reutin station with its parking facilities to get to Bregenz. If this parking option is already exhausted, the P1 car park in Reutiner Stra├če is about 850m away on foot. Enjoy the atmosphere of the Bregenz Festival after the performance and catch the special train back to Lindau from Bregenz station in peace and comfort.

Here you can find the timetable of the Austrian railway.

2024 and 2025: Der Freisch├╝tz

When the 2023 festival summer comes to an end, the elaborate stage set of “Madame Butterfly” will be dismantled in Lake Constance.

By then, everything will already be prepared for the next act: “Der Freisch├╝tz” by Carl Maria von Weber will be performed in 2024 and 2025. Here, too, you can already look forward to a unique, spectacular and detailed stage set and a fascinating production.
