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.

Like Bayreuth, one of those places which attracts Wagnerites. Unlike Bayreuth, there isn’t much here. Still, they have Nietzsche’s death mask, some of Wagner’s clothes, portraits of der Meister, the inevitable piano... And, believe it or not, the original communion bread used in the 1899 performance of Parsifal, in Bayreuth. It’ll take you about an hour to see the museum,... More

Take the small boat from quay near train station. The surrounds of the property are superb a picturesque and tranquil location. The house has some fascinating memorabilia, sadly not easily understood for English speakers but enough translated to pique ones interest. A walking path can lead you back to Lucerne.

My partner is a Wagner fan and found the house fascinating. Lots of history and interesting information about the Wagner family as well as the man himself. The lady who manned the house was a wealth of information and a pleasure to chat with Swiss Pass gave us free entry

As a fan of Wagner operas, I could get a glimpse of how his life was like when he lived there. The mansion was pretty well preserved with various objects related to the composer. The cashier(?) was very welcoming and kind and told us an interesting story about Wager and Cosima. The mansion is located at a very quiet and... More

A beautiful old house with a wonderful park. If you have time at hand, take your bathing suite and take a dive. The prettiest way to get here is via a little Rütli boat from just outside the trainstation.
