Former residence

Wagner was one of the most renowned composers in the history of music. The country manor in Tribschen, on Lake Lucerne, was his residence and the place where he worked for six years (1866–1872).

This manor, in which Wagner accomplished many of his works, is open to the public. Photographs, paintings and a valuable collection of letters and musical scores testify to Wagner’s life and work here. A highlight of the collection is the Erard grand piano on which Wagner completed his works, including The Mastersingers of Nuremberg. Concerts featuring this piano are still given today. Apart from the main Wagner exhibition, the museum holds temporary exhibitions on various aspects of the composer’s life and environment. During the summer there is a café on the forecourt, where visitors can enjoy the views. Come and visit us!
