The Architecture

The architecture of the museum building at the World of the Celts at the Glauberg is deliberately reserved, so as not to disturb the historical landscape. On the one hand the stark geometrical central element contrasts with the gently rolling hills of the countryside, but on the other hand it blends in perfectly. The large panorama window is exactly aligned on the reconstruction of the Celtic burial mound 1 – a museum with a telescope into the past!

This impressive architecture for an unmistakable site was created by kadawittfeldarchitektur. The architects from Aachen were the winners of the architectural competition, and were responsible for the realisation of the museum building. Only a short time after the museum was opened, it was awarded the architectural prize of Hessen in 2011 for exemplary building.
