Our group was split, 2 loved it 2 did not. History buff and literature lover were on the pro side...10 year old and Mom not so much. Felt silly walking up a flight of stairs listening to 3-5 minutes of narration for a short film...More

This is a museum about a poem. Admittedly, it is a very long poem, which has historical significance, but it was written anonymously, and there are few tangible artifacts in this museum. The sole item of interest is the audio program and the fact that...More

I thought this museum was amazing. That said, let me start with a caveat: The Nibelungenmuseum is NOT going to be for everyone. If you know what the Nibelungenlied is, find the story of Siegfried and the Burgundian treasure fascinating, and/or really enjoy Germanic history,...More

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....More

This is a museum without artifacts - we were warned as soon as we entered. Within the city walls tower are set up small stations displaying short movies. At each station you listen to the Niebelungen story on an audio guide. Additionally some historical background...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...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...More
