The Franz Liszt Museum is located in Liszt's dying house, near Haus Wahnfried, the home of his son-in-law Richard Wagner. Liszt died in 1886 while attending the Bayreuth Festival.

Visit to the museum

The exhibition is structured chronologically and tells of Franz Liszt's life and work. In biographical panels, individual stages of life are summarised in an interesting way. The tour through the museum is accompanied by the music of the artist.

Among the exhibits are private objects, a diary from his youth and valuable Liszt portraits. The silent piano, the death mask and the pianist's correspondence with Richard Wagner can also be seen there.

Historical Information

On the 182nd birthday of the great pianist and composer Franz Liszt, the Franz Liszt Museum was opened in Bayreuth in 1993.

The museum is based on the extensive collection of the Munich pianist Ernst Burger, which comprises about 300 pictures as well as manuscripts and prints. The exhibition was supplemented by loans from the Richard Wagner Foundation.

The Austrian province of Burgenland, where Franz Liszt was born, presented Bayreuth with a bust of the artist and a cast of his baptismal font for the opening of the museum.
