This was unexpectedly excellent - my companion is the Wagner fan, and I went along out of general musical/cultural interest, but found it fascinating.

Off the beaten path, Richard Wagner’s home is beautiful. Even if you’re not a fan of his music, take a walk to this picturesque location. The woman at the admission desk was very friendly. Before you go, check the opening hours. The museum is closed...More

One of my favorite walks when in Lucerne is the 45-minute trek from the city center out to Tribschen. The last stretch is uphill but you are rewarded with views out over the lake. The house has an idyllic location overlooking the lake, with a...More
