Public and private guided tours

The Richard Wagner Museum offers a regular public guided tour programme. Registration is only required for the tour guided by the Museum Director – otherwise just drop by and buy your tickets on site!

If no guided tour is currently taking place, we offer extensive commentaries explanations of properties, buildings, rooms and exhibits in the form of a media guide in several languages (currently German, English and French) and free of charge against a deposit at the museum box office.

The structural conditions of the rooms in Wahnfried House and Siegfried Wagner House whose original floor plan and layout have been preserved, lead relatively quickly to inconveniences caused by overcrowding when visited by larger groups of visitors or several groups at a time. Therefore we ask groups (even unaccompanied and under 10 persons) kindly to book in advance. Please understand that unannounced groups may be asked to visit the exhibition individually.
