Audio guide for children

Our chatty audio guide, the Merseburg raven, takes us through the history of the Merseburg Cathedral. Enthusiastically, proudly and in awe, the raven tells exciting stories about times gone by. The audio-guide tour begins with the short animated movie “Story of the Old Stone”, recounting tales of emperors and kings and the building of the cathedral 1000 years ago. Famous historical personalities talk about their time in Merseburg. Together with the Merseburg raven we discover treasures like the bronze tomb of Rudolf von Rheinfelden, solve the mystery of the mummified hand and listen to the sound of the Merseburg Incantations. Even Bishop Thilo von Trotha has a guest appreance and reveals the secret of the famous raven saga.
