WAHNFRIED, vän'frēt. The residence of Richard Wagner at Bayreuth, built in 1873 by Wöltle. The front bears the inscription "Hier wo mein Wähnen Frieden fand, Wahnfried sei dieses Haus von mir genannt." The grave of the great composer is in the garden.

This work was published before January 1, 1926, and is in the public domain worldwide because the author died at least 100 years ago.
