Pure love of life and more than 2000 years of cultural history

Nibelung city Worms

In Worms, the ancient capital of the Nibelungen, history is up-close and omnipresent: here, queens quarreled, held court and were defended theses.

The "City of Religions" offers its visitors highlights of European cultural history between the Middle Ages and the modern era with topics such as Jewish history, the Reformation and the cathedral. In addition to the Romanesque cathedral, Europe's oldest Jewish cemetery and the world's largest Reformation monument testify to the city's rich cultural heritage. The annual Nibelungen Festival in the shadow of the cathedral also makes Worms a visitor magnet. Many varied events, from the jazz festival "Worms: Jazz & Joy" to the medieval "Spectaculum" enrich the cultural life of the city. In addition to all the culture, the best climatic conditions, many hours of sunshine and a charming environment in the largest contiguous wine-growing region in Germany provide the perfect setting for your stay.
