Hagendenkmal

Worms · Rheinhessen

In addition to the north portal of the cathedral as the venue of the momentous dispute of rank between Brunhild and Kriemhild and the "Siegfriedstein" on the south side of the cathedral, visitors are attracted above all by the Hagen statue erected in 1905. The bronze work standing on the banks of the Rhine reminds us of the sinking of the legendary treasure of the Nibelungs into the waters of the Rhine. Because of its numerous references to poetry, Worms is the starting point of the Nibelungen Route leading via the Lorsch Monastery in the direction of Hungary. In its course it follows the settings of the work. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
