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

This was unexpectedly excellent - my companion is the Wagner fan, and I went along out of general musical/cultural interest, but found it fascinating. An excellently curated collection of documents and objects (labelled in German, French and English) in a beautiful building. Definitely worth leaving...More

There is a bit of steep walk up to the promontory on which this "summer" house is situated where Wagner spent a number of years. There are a few items of furniture which belonged to him, along with a piano and a number of his...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.
