  • Good visit for those interested in classical music and life stories. Great views over the lake of Lucerne and nice coffeteria outside.
  • A short walk from the center of town. A small and specialized museum. Contains original scores, personal stories of the family and even critical material. A peek into both their musical and personal lives.
  • Walking from the train station the view of the lake and the surrounding nature continually got more spectacular. Arriving at the museum I saw the mountains, swans in the lake and a beautiful manor house. The environment seemed to scream inspiration. The museum is small but well kept and not too crowded. Seeing letters and scores in the composer's hand was fascinating. Some of the paintings and the death mask added a little camp to the day. Worth a visit and a lovely place to picnic or grab a coffee.
  • Took a ferry tour to view nice open scenery
  • Very peaceful and intimate place
