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

We took the boat down the lake to visit the house, which is about a 35 minute journey (and a very pleasant one). It stops at the jetty at the bottom of a small hill front of the house and you have to walk up. The first boat left Lucerne at 10.45am so we arrived to find the Museum closed... More

Just a few minutes away from the City of Luzern, if you can imagine the perfect place to set a house, this would be it. This grand stone house, with some elements, dated back to the 15th century, but rebuilt in the 1800's, stands at the tip of a small peninsula. There are paths to walk around the property, along...

A great little museum in the villa Wagner spent part of his life. There is a small boat service from the pier outside KKL in Lucerne, and its a fab thing to use that to get to the museum and to afterwards stroll back by the lakeside paths, having first had refreshments in the cafe outside the museum. A great... More

But we enjoyed our walk out to the Museum. the location is very pretty, and there are benches for you to sit on, and take in the view. Also there was a stand there to grab a drink or have an ice cream. It seemed like a very Swiss thing to do on a Sunday afternoon.

The area around the Richard Wagner Museum is very nice to chill in summer :) It's a nice walk from the city all along the lake to the museum. Don't take the bus :)

This mansion is where Richard Wagner lived for several years with his wife, and inspired him to write the ring cycle - It was here that he wrote ' Siegfried' and 'Tristan and Isolde'. An inspirational location, with fantastic views across the Lake

For fans of Wagner this is the next best thing to going to Bayreuth as he spent six years here . The house , Triebschen is on the lake about a twenty minute walk from the centre of Lucerne It reminded me of Grieg's house at Troldhaugen in Norway. We just followed the lake around . The museum is well... More

A medium walk from central Lucerne along a beautiful path along the lake. Wagner was a controversial character and this small but well thought out museum provides some fascinating insights in the man. This house was his home for several years. Situation on the lake, one can understand where he got the inspiration for the sets of the Ring Cycle... More
