We greatly enjoyed out tour of the Wagner house. There is a wonderful collection of original manuscripts and you get a feel for Wagner's life style. The walk back along the lake was very pleasant. check for concerts on the grounds in the summer.

Good: -I did my research, I took the right bus to the bus stop & after walking for more than 10 minutes, the place was still out of sight, thus pls do not waste time visiting this place. The good thing is, at the bus stop which I alighted, there is a big sign that reads "Richard Wagner Museum". Bad:... More

The house where Wagner lived for 6 years and composed some of his most memorable works, including the Siegfried Idyll, first performed on the staircase of the house as Cosima Wagner's surprise birthday present.
