“Ein frischer Trunk hälts Leben jung.”

There are two episodes in the 12th century German poem, Das Nibelungenlied, that might have served as the inspiration for this stein. In the first, Kriemhilde is about to leave her castle at Worms to return with her new husband, the hero Siegfried, to his homeland in the Netherlands. In the second, following Siegfried’s death, Kriemhilde once again departs from Worms, this time in order to be married to Etzel (Attila), King of the Huns.
