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

Peaceful situation in splendid setting. Interesting information about the great man's complicated life. The music speaks for itself.

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.

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...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...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...More
