Nibelungen Museum in Worms

Opened in Autumn 2001, the Nibelungen Museum is located in Worms, a small town on the Rhine, in Germany. Focussing solely on the legend of the Nibelungen, the Nibelungmuseum of Worms is a wholly virtual museum, with no collections and only using virtual objects for its presentations. According to the song of the Nibelungen, a vast treasure lies under the town of Worms: a Golden Ring - the inexhaustible source of precious metal, love and joy for whoever holds it. This 12th century German legend was immortalised by Richard Wagner in his dramatic tetralogy: Das Rheingold, Die Walküre, Siegfried and the Götterdämmerung, also known as the Ring Cycle.
