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.

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.
