Friedrich Nietzsche meets for the first time with Richard Wagner at Tribschen, Germany. Nietzsche will also spend his first weekend and Christmas at Wagner's home in Tribschen later this year.

Friedrich Nietzsche is at this time a great admirer of both Richard Wagner and his wife, Cosima. Later, however, Nietzsche will become repulsed by Wagner's celebration and promotion of German nationalism and German culture, and even more by how popular this becomes.
