The Nibelungen Museum Worms

The Nibelungen Museum is not a museum of the traditional kind that collects and displays exhibits. Its concept is based on modern media, and the museum belongs to a long tradition in the interpretation of the Nibelung legend

It is itself an example of a “Nibelung creation”, and it provides information on the centuries-old legend, interprets this legend and, with its futuristic architecture, fascinates and inspires its visitors.

The Nibelungen Museum is housed in two magnificent towers on the city wall, which dates back to medieval days of the Staufer dynasty. 

Equipped with a multimedia guide, visitors make their way round the museum as if they were in a walk-in audio book


Tours of the museum

In the reception area of the Nibelungen Museum, visitors must first decide which tour to take:

Whether to follow the unknown author of the Song of the Nibelungs text (tour in German, English or French)?

Or whether to find out more about Richard Wagner and his life’s work "The Ring of the Nibelungs" (tour in German, booklet in English)?

If you find it difficult to choose, then just plan more time for your stay so that you can look at and listen to everything. 

Or even better, come back for another visit!
