Place of origin of Richard Wagner's "Parsifal

The mixture of villa and white knight's castle, built in 1868 as the country house of a Russian "landowner", was once used as a hotel. Even back then, artists and musicians came and went here; Richard Wagner, for example, completed his opera Parsifal here. Today, Balmoral Castle is an institution of the Rhineland-Palatinate Foundation for Culture, which serves as a place to live and work for visual arts scholarship holders from all over the world. Events and exhibitions are regularly organised here.
