Museum Richard Wagner



Richard Wagner is one of the most famous composers in the history of music. For six years (1866–1872), he chose to live and work at the Tribschen Landhaus by Lake Lucerne.

The Landhaus, in which Wagner created a number of his works, is now a museum containing photographs, paintings and a valuable collection of scores and letters illustrating the life and work of the artist. The centrepiece of the collection is Wagner's beloved Erard grand piano. Concerts featuring the piano still take place.

The museum also puts on temporary exhibitions alongside the permanent Wagner collection on display. These focus on aspects of his work and times.

A summer cafe on the wonderful museum forecourt invites visitors to sit back, relax and enjoy the views of the lake and mountains.
