The Audio Tower

The Audio Tower is the scriptorium of the unknown poet. Here he is completely in his element – language. Visitors take a seat on one of the wooden “thrones” and listen to parts of the Song of the Nibelungs in the original language. The author names the sources of his work and gives information about literature and its readers in his time. He also reminds us of famous fellow-poets such as Snorri Sturluson, who wrote down the “Prose Edda”, and Wolfram von Eschenbach, the author of the medieval epic poem “Parzival”.

In the upper part of the tower visitors can enjoy a fascinating view of the Nibelung cíty of Worms and take an imaginary journey across the lands of the Nibelungs, from Brunhild’s Iceland to King Etzel’s Hungary.

The museum tour that begins in the Tower of Vision is currently being enlarged to include the mythology of Richard Wagner’s Ring cycle. This new tour is planned to open in autumn 2017.

On leaving the Audio Tower, visitors can reach the Myth Lab via the battlement walkway along the ancient city wall.
