Provinzialstraße 29, 55425 Waldalgesheim
Here are exhibited jewelry replicas of a Celtic princess tomb from the period 330-320 BC. In 1869, during field work, the burial chamber of a woman of about 60 years of age was accidentally discovered, which was equipped with high-quality ornamental objects as grave goods. Among them were ornamental elements and yoke of a two-wheeled chariot, clothes and body ornaments made of gold and bronze, mostly of Celtic production. A bronze jug and a mixing bucket show the ancient tradition of feasting according to the Mediterranean model. Except for the decorations of the bronze jug in the "early style" of Celtic art, the majority of the objects with special decorations and ornaments give name to the following "Waldalgesheim style". The exact place of discovery in Waldalgesheim is unknown today. The original exhibits of the unique ceremonial tomb are on display in the "Schatzkammer" of the LVR-LandesMuseum in Bonn as part of the exhibition "Celts in the Rhineland". The extraordinarily decorated gold jewelry is one of the most important Celtic art treasures in the world.
