Participants of the guided city tour “on the trails of Franz Liszt” will find out what traces Franz Liszt has left behind.
Besides visiting the museum in the house where the composer died and his piano virtuosos, the focus is on his life and work, as well as on the, not always unproblematic relationships with his daughter Cosima and Richard Wagner. The trails take you through the palace park (Hofgarten) by the new palace, via the residence- and Jean Paul square to the Friederichstraße, past the piano manufacturer Steingraeber & Söhne, who were, already to Franz Liszt times, an institution in the musical life of the city of Bayreuth. After that, the walk continues to the city cemetery and the tomb chapel of the famous Burgenlander, where you have reached the end of the tour. The route on foot, from the Liszt museum to the tomb chapel is around 2,5 km long.
