The walk to the Wagner House is very nice along the shore of the lake. The House is lovely with some great displays. Much of it is in German which makes understanding some of the items not so easy for English only tourists.

A couple of years ago my wife and I were lucky enough to see a magnificent Metropolitan Opera production of Wagner's ring cycle at our local cinema, while many years ago we rented a small apartment in a Palazzo in Rome where he wrote The Flying Dutchman. We are Wagner fans so it was a wonderful experience to visit the... More

We walked the lake trail, which was beautiful. The grounds of the museum are beautiful and relaxing. There are various places to sit near the lake. There were also bathrooms and a small cafe outside, which was very helpful. We chose not to go into the museum after deciding to spend time on the grounds.

You'll probably have to be a fan of Wagner to enjoy this visit. The house, just outside Lucerne along the Swiss Path and overlooking the lake in Tribschen, bear a lot of history about Wagner, his family, and his music. If you read German you might spend several hours. There's lots of information on his wife Cosima, daughter Isolde, mentor... More

You can take a car or bus to this historic home. It is well over a mile from downtown. We recommend, though, using the lake trail. The walking trail passes several interesting parks, a small boat harbor and through a beautiful wooded area with chirping birds. The house sits on a low bluff overlooking Lake Lucerne. Today his home is... More

just a large house/mini old 3 storey mansion. Idyllic spot next to Lake Luzern, with peaceful views, but getting obstructed by large trees. Where he wrote Siegfried. Easy walk from Luzern, along road by lake starting from KKL ( concert hall)/ Radisson Blu

This museum is off the beaten path, but it has great lake views. Wagner is presented in a very different way here than he is in German museums. It's worth a visit. Get a bus pass. It's easy to do with a credit card at any bus stop. Day pass is 8 francs.

The wagner fans would definitely find this museum delightful. Having a Swiss pass will get you free entry.
