EasyJet flies from Edinburgh or Manchester to Munich, Ryanair flies from Edinburgh to Memmingen. It's then 3 or 4 hours on the train. Air Berlin flies from Gatwick to Nuremberg which is closer.

Closest airport to Bayreuth is Nuremberg Airport (NUE).

Otherwise you could fly to Munich (MUC) or Frankfurt (FRA).

E.g. flybe.com fliest from Glasgow to Frankfurt.

Easyjet flies from Glasgow to Berlin-Schönefeld (SXF). That's however 5 hours from Bayreuth.

You can check the travel times to Bayreuth with the DB timetable


Start: NUE

Start: SXF

Destination: Bayreuth Hbf
