This is a staggering hideaway of connected mansions, with fields as vast as a dozen soccer pitches, an aquatic park that rivals the Bellagio fountains, and miles of interlocking walkways that encircle and cut through the property.

Siegfried Fischbacher ordered those rails built, once more providing support to his friend, life companion and performing partner.
