Werner Huthmacher


The museum for Celtic art is a clearly contoured and distinct volume, blending in with the surrounding landscape. Partly inserted into the slope, the museum building projects out towards the burial mound, amplifying the latter’s leading role as an element of the landscape. Tucked in underneath the main volume are the foyer and café as well as auxiliary rooms. This is where the exploration of the museum’s archaeological trail begins and ends. The high point is reached as the visitor ascends a staircase/ramp and is greeted at the top by a picture window offering an impressive view of the burial mound, thus incorporating it into the exhibition itself. The roof then acts as an observation deck with 360-degree vistas onto the scenic landscape and the skies above – so that the entire surroundings can be “discovered”.
