The action of the most famous German epic "The Song of the Nibelungs" takes place in Worms. No wonder then, that in the city there are the Nibelungen tower and the Nibelungen Bridge and to all main heroes of the epic are set the monuments. But a museum dedicated to the epic legend? I was afraid that the idea will... More

In this very modern museum built in part of the old town wall, they take you back into the world of an "unknown author" of the 12th century, and he narrates all of the stories and circumstances of the Neibulunglied. We enjoyed the creation of this persona for this narrator, this unknown author. The Burgundian Kingdom settled here in Worms,... More

This is a museum that tells a story rather than shows exhibits. The Nibelungen is a romantic saga of heroes, rather like our tales of King Arthur. Not recommended for young children as they wouldn't find it interesting.

This museum will best be enjoyed by people who already have some knowledge of the Sigfried legend, or the epic poem The Nibelungenlied . The "museum" puts the story in its historical context in an absolutely brilliant way which can be experienced either in an hour short form, or two and a half hour long form. I read the poem... More

Perhaps if I had been familiar with the Nibelungenlied ahead of time I would have enjoyed the visit more. As it was, the Wagner fan in our group was disappointed and the rest of us were just baffled. There is an audio guide - if you have time to listen to the extra bits they are helpful, but they do... More

After reading some of the tripadvisor reviews I wasn't expecting much from the Nibelungen Museum, but I walked away wishing I had more time to finish the entire tour before I had to catch my train. The audio guide, which comes in English, is very good. The narrator explains the saga in an entertaining way and explains the history behind... More

I went in knowing very little about the Nibelungenlied, and came out eager to read it and hear more of it. Very interesting museum, even though it's just an audio tour. Make sure you listen to it all! It takes some time, but I thought it was very worth it to stick with it to the end.

The museum is set in the old town wall, which makes it very atmospheric. It consists of two towers joined by a walkway. As you go up the first tower there are screens playing short clips from the original silent film of the Nibelungen, directed by Fritz Lang. As you stop at each station, the audio-guide gives you a paraphrased... More
