Nibelungen Museum

  • The rediscovery of the Nibelungenlied’s C and A manuscripts at Hohenems Palace in 1755 and 1779, respectively, marked the starting point of its renaissance and rapid establishment as the German national epic. Eventually, Richard Wagner led the story about the dragon slayer Siegfried to worldwide fame by means of his four-part music drama Der Ring des Nibelungen. Wagner’s magnum opus stands at the centre of the small museum, which also informs about other realizations of the Nibelungen theme on the stage and in film.


    Open during the concert periods in Hohenems and Schwarzenberg. Visits can be arranged for groups and individuals throughout the year by appointment (by the preceding working day at the latest).
