“Artistic History.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

The home and final resting place of Richard Wagner is not altogether that impressive unless you take into account his notoriety. During my visit there were droves of people, from independant walking tourists to large groups receiving guided tours. Wagner's home is impressive as are so many from that era but it was not open to the public during my visit in April 2012. I was unaware that Wagner and his wife were burried on the grounds until I had already left so I immediately returned to investigate. While I believe I found their resting place without much fanfare, I was delighted to find a rustic marker for what I believe is the grave of the Wagner family cat. Anyway, I had a good time and this attraction should be included in any Bayreuth tour, particularly for lovers of music.
