Like Bayreuth, one of those places which attracts Wagnerites. Unlike Bayreuth, there isn’t much here. Still, they have Nietzsche’s death mask, some of Wagner’s clothes, portraits of der Meister, the inevitable piano... And, believe it or not, the original communion bread used in the 1899 performance of Parsifal, in Bayreuth. It’ll take you about an hour to see the museum,... More

Take the small boat from quay near train station. The surrounds of the property are superb a picturesque and tranquil location. The house has some fascinating memorabilia, sadly not easily understood for English speakers but enough translated to pique ones interest. A walking path can lead you back to Lucerne.

My partner is a Wagner fan and found the house fascinating. Lots of history and interesting information about the Wagner family as well as the man himself. The lady who manned the house was a wealth of information and a pleasure to chat with Swiss Pass gave us free entry

Opening hours: Tuesday - Sunday 10 - 12 am and 2 - 5 pm. Unfortunately we arrived at the place at 4:30 but the woman ( of Australian origin) taking care of the place was so kind with us. She told us that she will stay 20 minutes extra just for us and indeed she did! These things make your... More

As a fan of Wagner operas, I could get a glimpse of how his life was like when he lived there. The mansion was pretty well preserved with various objects related to the composer. The cashier(?) was very welcoming and kind and told us an interesting story about Wager and Cosima. The mansion is located at a very quiet and... More

A beautiful old house with a wonderful park. If you have time at hand, take your bathing suite and take a dive. The prettiest way to get here is via a little Rütli boat from just outside the trainstation.

This summer home of Richard Wagner is a bout a 1 km walk from town. It sits high on a bluff overlooking Lake Lucerne. The lady in charge spoke perfect English, she was from Australia. There is lots of Wagner memorabilia and paintings here such as his piano, original score for Meistersinger which was written in this house and portraits.... More

Picturesque house in a beautiful setting. We heard a very professional recital by piano and cello. Quite a few stairs to climb but worth the effort

Take the time a stroll or bike to this home restoration Interesting history and changing exhibits as well. Even though I was not a Wagner fan it was just the right amount of classic music for me

My husband is a huge Wagner fan, so we walked from the city center to his house on the lake (about 25 minutes). It was a lovely walk on a sunny day, but you can also take a bus if it is raining or if you are not up to the walk. it was pretty walking along the lake and... More
