Beautiful museum, lots of interactive displays, movies to watch, and the special exhibit "Wagner in cartoons". The grounds are well kept, nice place to have a picnic right along the lake.

It was beautiful to walk around the grounds of this home on the lake, but don't pay to tour the museum itself unless you are a Wagner enthusiast. Not much to see inside the house itself. Covered with Swiss Travel Pass. Limited accessibility by boat...More

Great but long walk from town. Do the walk by the lake and take in the beauty. The home itself is in a great setting overlooking the lake and mountains. Worth the walk even if not a Wagner fan.

The house of Richard Wagner is a representation of how the house look when he lived there and by that I mean most of the interior pieces are reproductions due to loss or damage. However the tour is difficult because they lead you through his...More
