In a true creative frenzy, Richard Wagner created the musical draft for the romantic opera »Lohengrin« in Graupa. Wagner‘s career began in 1843, when he was appointed Royal Saxon Conductor at the Dresden Court Opera. A summer vacation took him to nearby Graupa three years later, where he rented a room on a farm and sought inspiration in the idyllic natural landscape between Pillnitz and Saxon Switzerland. The »Lohengrinhaus« offers insights into the composer’s life, as visitors can explore his reconstructed living quarters and offices before checking out the »Lohengrin« exhibition. Another attraction within walking distance is the Graupa hunting lodge, where a multimedia exhibition portrays Wagner’s life and career – and visitors can even try their hand at conducting. Listening to the sounds of his music, many people start dreaming.
